Ken Medema – Tree Song chords
G D G Am G DI saw a tree by the riverside one day as I walked along.G D G Am D G Straight as an arrow and pointing to the sky, growing tall and strong.G D Am F C G DHow did you grow so tall and strong? I said to the riverside tree.RefrainG 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,Am D GAnd winter winds blew all around.G D Am F C G DHow do you stay so tall and strong? I said to the winter-time tree.RefrainG D G Am G DI saw a tree in the city streets where buildings blocked the sun:G D G Am D G Green and lovely, I could see it gave joy to everyone.G D Am F C G DHow do you grow in the city streets? I said to the downtown tree.Refrain
