I stood by the banks of a river
and I watched the ripples go by
then I thought of my love's gone
gone off to see
and tears, and tears
you know the tears came coming from my eyes
so I sat beside the bushes of a whole lot of willows
and I wondered just what shall I do
when suddenly a breeze brought the willow to its knees
and I swear, and I swear
you know I swear
that the willow wept too
I was so surprised the tears stopped coming from my eyes
I couldn't believe that the willow wept too
the willow said to me
get off your bending knees
walk on home walk on home
there's nothing we could
so I moved as I wended my way
yeah the willow said dry your tears
cause the lover he is gone
cause the lover he is gone
