Okay, so I've taken the lyrics from another post that I saw under the Live Shows thread and attempted to fill in the blanks to the best of my ability. Someone else can take the plunge and finish what I have and or correct it!  If this topic needs merged or whatever, someone please feel free to do so =)

The Willow

Find a love, go build a cabin
Find land and a tree, carving a wish
On your knees, plant seeds
Dirtmaking roads
Where the devil don't see

Lovethe green, so lucky you find it
Our memories, they
don't stay behind us

Our minds are strong
Could it be enough to grip straight through the holes

Arm of the willow is hanging above me
Imma back in the sun Would it fall upon me
I won't let you down, Man you will keep save my love
Save my love

Throw me the earth, a blanketa bounty
something about prayers?
The devil dries empty
And a babies' eyes
Ritual purifies every desire

Arm of the willow is hanging above me
Imma back in the sun Would it fall upon me
I won't let you down, Man you will keep save my love
Man you will keep save my love
Man you will keep save my love

Arm of the willow is hanging above me
Imma back in the sun Would it fall upon me
I won't let you down, Man you will keep save
let you down
Man you will keep save
let you down
Man you will keep save my love
Save my love

Thanks for this, I think you got it right.
I'm just not really sure about the part "Dirtmaking roads" because I hear "Dirt making rose"
And I don't know why but I always hear "Carribean wish"...

as far as I know, we only have one recording of this, and she clearly says before the song "I'm gonna try another new one, this is called Willows" ...not "the willow" or "the willows"

here's my input.
still, I don't think I'm 100% correct, but I do think I fixed a lot of things.



Find him a love, go build a cabin
If I lay under the tree, carving a wish
On your knees, plant seeds
The dirt make you roads
Where the devil don't sing

Love is green, so lucky to find ya
Our memories, they don't stay behind us
Our minds are strong
Could it be enough to bring strength through the heart?

Our weeping willow is hanging above me
And I'm back in the sun
Would it fall upon me?
I won't let you down
The man you will keep safe, my love
Safe, my love

The soil of the Earth, a blanket, a bounty
In the dreams, in the prayers
The devil dries empty a baby's eyes
The ritual purifies every design

Our weeping willow keeps hanging above me
I'm back in the sun
Would it fall upon me?
I won't let you down
The man you will keep safe, my love
The man you will keep safe, my love
The man you will keep safe, my love

Our weeping willow is hanging above me
I'm back in the sun
Would it fall upon me?
I won't let you down
The man you will keep safe
Let you down
The man you will keep safe
Let you down
The man you will keep safe, my love
Safe, my love

An arm of the willow is hanging above me

Would it fall upon me?
I won't let you down

Safe, my love

Oh my gosh, I was totally off on some things!  Huh  Thank you so much Kulp, for making corrections!

Yes, tonight she just said Willows.

I love willow trees, I wish I had one in my yard.  I've always wanted one since I was younger.

Find a love, go build a cabin.
Find land under the tree, carving a wish,
on your knees, planting seeds, the dirt making roads
where the devil don't see.

Love, i agree, so lucky it'll find you.
Our memories, they don't stay behind us, our minds are strong,
could it be enough to bring strength to the bones?

Arm weeping willow is hanging above me.
On my back in the sun, would it fall upon me?
I won't let you down, and man you will keep safe my love.
Safe my love.

Soil of the earth, a blanket, a bounty,
and the dance is a purse the devil drives empty in a baby's eyes.
The ritual purifies every desire.

Arm weeping willow is hanging above me.
On my back in the sun, would it fall upon me?
I won't let you down, and man you will keep safe my love.
Man you will keep safe my love,
man you will keep safe my love.

Arm weeping willow hanging above me.
On my back in the sun, would it fall upon me?
I won't let you down, and man you will keep safe,
let you down, and man you will keep safe,
let you down, and man you will keep safe my love.

Safe my love,
safe my love,
safe my love.


that's actually what i hear (from the world cafe live performance).

I hear this:

Find a love, go build a cabin.
Find land and a tree and carve in a wish
on your knees
, planting seeds, the dirt making roads
where the devil don't see.


I kind of hear "our" instead of "arm" everytime, but i dont know Smiley

I really like this song, specially the melody.

I've heard it in person twice already, it is definitely "Our weeping willow"  no arms of willows.
