G Am C G 2x Then
D Am C G Bm C G C G
I buried him down by the river
'Cause thats where he liked to be.
And every night when the moon is high
I go there and weep openly.
He and I were married
By the river 'neath this willow tree
And with God and friends witnessing on
Am C G
He pledged his life to me
G Am C G
To me he was earth, I rooted in his soil.
I to he was sky vast and free
Of the burdens from which he toiled.
Then one night a terrible fight
Words spoken better left unsaid.
With his wedding vows ringing in my ears
He gave his life to me.
BREAK: G Am C G 2x D Am C G Bm C G C G
They say to love is to bury
Those demons from which we all hide,
But tonight by this river 'neath this willow tree
Bm Am G
Becoming one are earth and sky.
