G D G Am G DI saw a tree by the riverside one day as I walked along.

G D Bm GThis is the song that my tree friend sang to me:
G C D GIve got roots growing down to the water;
G C D GIve 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 DIm, becoming what the Lord of trees has meant me to be:
GA strong, young tree.
G D G Am G DI saw a tree in the winter-time when snow lay on the ground.
G D G D G Straight as an arrow and pointing to the sky,

Refrain
G D G Am G DI saw a tree in the city streets where buildings blocked the sun:
