I have always thought the first song of the Carter Family was "Bury Me Under the Weeping Willow." However, today I read in a book "Anchored In Love: The Carter Family Story" that the first song was "Weeping Willow," which the lyrics read something like "I'll hang my harp in the weeping willow." I did a search for "Weeping Willow" here and I found that a song had this line in it and that song was called "There is a Tavern in the Town." I also read that when A.P. Carter first heard his record in the general music store in Bristol, the record was Weeping Willow/Single Girl, Married Girl. I have what I thought was the first record of the Carter Family, which is Bury Me Under the Weeping Willow/Little Log Cabin by the Sea, both of which were recorded on August 1, 1927. In the book Anchored in Love, it does not state the song Bury Me Under the Weeping Willow. So, my question is this: What is the Carter Family's first song? Is it Weeping Willow (There's a Tavern in the Town) or Bury Me Under the Weeping Willow?
