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
