Willow Weep for Me

Lyrics ,Music:Ann Ronell

The song was publishe 1932.

The song form is AABA and it is written in 4/4 time,
although it is occasionally adapted for 3/4 waltz time,
as on recordings by Phil Woods (Musique du Bois, 1974)
and Dr. Lonnie Smith (Jungle Soul, 2006.)
It is mostly known as a jazz standard, having been recorded first
by Ted Fio Rito (with vocal by Muzzy Marcellino) in October 1932
and by Paul Whiteman (with vocal by Irene Taylor) the following month.
Both were hits in December 1932.
It was a Top 40 hit for the British duo Chad & Jeremy in 1964;
the song was released on their Yesterday's Gone album
and reached No. 15 on the Billboard Hot 100
and No. 1 on the Adult Contemporary chart.

Willow, weep for me
Willow, weep for me
Bend your branches green along the stream that runs to sea
Listen to my plea
Listen, willow and weep for me

Gone my lovers dream
Lovely summer dream
Gone and left me here to weep my tears into the stream
Sad as I can be
Hear me willow and weep for me

Whisper to the wind and say that love has sinned
Leave my heart a-breaking, and making a moan
Murmur to the night to hide the starry light
So none will find me sighing and crying all alone

Weeping willow tree
Weep in sympathy
Bend your branches down along the ground and cover me
When the shadows fall, bend the willow and weep for me
