Stephen Foster, 1860

Under the willow she's laid with care,
Sang a lone mother while weeping,
Under the willow, with golden hair,
My little one's quietly sleeping.
Chorus:
Fiar, fair, and golden hair;
Sang a lone mother while weeping,
Fair, fair, and golden hair;
Under the willow she's sleeping.
2. Under the willow by night and day,
Sorrowing ever I ponder;
Free from its shadowy, gloomy ray,
Ah! never again can she wander.
Chorus:

3. Under the willow I breathe a prayer,
Long to linger forever
Near to my angel with golden hair,
In lands where there's sorrowing never.
Chorus:
