    Tune to Double C on your banjo for this tune. If you play it at a jam you are very likely to hear it in the key of D. So after you tune to double C, put your capo on the second fret, and spike or capo your 5th string on the 7th fret. You can tune the 5th string up a whole step to A, just make sure you don't have old strings on when you do that. Old strings can easily break with that extra tension.

Bury Me Beneath the Willow lyrics

Oh, bury me beneath the willow Under the weeping willow tree So she will know where I am sleeping And perhaps she’ll weep for me My heart is sad I am lonely For the only one I love When shall I see her oh no never ‘Til we meet in heaven above She told me that she dearly loved me How could I believe it untrue Until the angels softly whispered She will prove untrue to you Tomorrow was to be our wedding God oh God where can she be She’s out a courting with another And no longer cares for me
