G                   D     G       Am              G    D
I 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    D
“How did you grow so tall and strong?”  I said to the riverside tree.


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

G                   D      G         Am              G   D
I 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         G
And winter winds blew all around.
G                   D        Am          F           C           G    D
“How do you stay so tall and strong?”  I said to the winter-time tree.


Refrain
 
G                   D     G            Am                    G    D
I 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    D
“How do you grow in the city streets?”  I said to the downtown tree.


Refrain
