Lyrics below copied from http://www.marieburns.com/music/willow/willow.txt.
There is also a generous sound sample on this page: http://www.marieburns.com/music/willow/

WILLOW
Marie Burns and Martin Simpson
(c) 1996 Marie Burns / Marie Burns Music, BMI

When the willows start to weep
Winter winds have died
When the waters run deep
I look to the other side

Searching for my true love
Hoping that he will call

He took me by the hand
Swore his love was true
When I looked into his eyes
I saw oceans of blue

Waves crashing on the shore
He was calling to me once more

Wait for me I will return
Inside my heart my love will burn
You're in my soul forevermore

Wait for me
Please wait for me

Sometimes in the night
I think I hear him call
But it's a lonely whippoorwill
Singing and that's all

I wait and time goes by
Still in dreams I can hear his cry

Wait for me I will return
Inside my heart my love will burn
You're in my soul forevermore

Wait for me I will return
Inside my heart my love will burn
You're in my soul forevermore

Wait for me
Please wait for me

When the willows start to weep
I'll be back by your side

[Performed by Mac Benford & The Woodshed All-Stars on "Willow" Rounder CD #0371, 1996.]

I'm futzing with the tune on my banjo using g-modal. I don't have a 'chord' or tab yet, but it seems to work.

Its a beautiful tune.
