Recorded by Glen Stuart on Pye Nixa 7N.15323
Did he know of a day when you'd take your love away?
Did he know of a night when I wouldn't hold you tight?
I carved an arrow on a heart, did he know we would part?
I just laughed when he cried but I never knew
That the heart I had carved would be crying over you;
And you would leave the willow tree all alone with me.
But he said "Have fun, go find someone; I'll do your crying for you."
Now I can't deny that I'm gonna try to find someone new.
‘Cos I couldn't cry like a weepy willow tree,
Every tear that I shed took away a memory,
And my heart closed its door, I don't care any more -
No I don't care for you any more.
