“Bury Me Beneath The Willow .”


During a 1970’s interview, Mother Maybelle Carter asked about the song, “Bury Me Beneath The Willow .”

She replied, “ That was a song we had sang all our lives. We first heard the song at a family get-together and decided to learn it. We did learn the words and sang it at all our family parties and get-togethers.  The song became quite popular so when we recorded  for RCA Victor  in 1927--we recorded “Bury Me Beneath The Willow ” on our first recording session in Bristol , Tennessee .  The original version of the song was written by Bradley Kincaid.”
