G C D G“I’ve got roots growing down to the water;
G C D GI’ve got leaves growing up to the sunshine;
C D G Am DAnd the fruit that I bear is a sign of the life in me.
G C D GI am shade from the hot summer sundown;
G C D GI am nest for the birds of the heaven.
C D G Am DI’m, becoming what the Lord of trees has meant me to be:
GA strong, young tree.”
