Featuring a solo vocal performance by Sophie Jones, Willow Tree pays homage to the traditional country songs of the mid 20th century.

lyrics

I went to sit beneath the willow tree
I watched it swaying to and from
I saw the moon rise through its lazy leaves
I heard it whisper soft and low

And as I sat beneath that willow
And heard the river sailing by
I wondered why we ever had to part
Why we ever said goodbye

Ooo-wee-oo
Ooo-wee-oo
Hear that lonesome song

Ooo-wee-oo
Ooo-wee-oo
Sing it all night long

If you’re passing by that willow
Won’t you shed a tear for me?
For that’s the place you left my broken heart
Forever weeping, willow tree

Ooo-wee-oo
Ooo-wee-oo
Hear that lonesome song

Ooo-wee-oo
Ooo-wee-oo
Sing it all night long

If you’re passing by that willow
Won’t you shed a tear for me?
For that’s the place you left my broken heart
Forever weeping, willow tree
