Intro:  
Am  Em  Am  Em  


VERSE 1: 
Am G Am Way up in the mountains on the high timberline
G Dm G Am there's a twisted old tree called the bristle cone pine
F Am G Am the wind there it's bitter and cut's like a knife
G Dm G Am Em Am And keeps that tree holdin on for dear life
VERSE 2:
Am G AmHold on it does stand in it's ground
G Dm G AmStanding as empires rise and fall down
F Am G Am When Jesus was gathering lambs to his fold
G Dm G Am Em Am The tree was already a thousand years old
CHORUS 1:
F C G C Now the way I have lived there aint no way to tell
F C G when I die if I'm goin' to heaven or hell
F C G Am so when I'm laid to rest it'll suite me just fine
F G Am to sleep at the feet of the Bristlecone Pine
VERSE 3:
Am G AmAnd as I would slowly return to this earth
G Dm G AmWhat little this body of mine might be worth
F Am G Am It'd soon start to nourish the roots of that tree
G Dm G Am Em Am And it would par - take of the essence of me
VERSE 4:
Am G Am And who knows but that as the century's turn
G Dm G AmA small spark in me might continue to burn
F Am G AmAs long as the sun does continue to shine
G Dm G Am Em Am Down on the limbs of the Bristlecone Pine
CHORUS 2:
F C G C By the way I have lived there aint no way to tell
F C G When I die if I'm goin to heaven or hell
F C G Am But I'd just soon serve out eternity's time
F G Am Asleep at the feet of the Bristlecone Pine
