It was a lonely Saturday
It was sunny no trees to give me shade 
I sat quietly
My head was in a fog
I had a rough week
Wasn’t sure if it hadn’t ended yet
I needed release
I took a hatchet to a log

F                             E
And as I brought the hatchet down
D7                            A5
and forced the blade into the thick wood
F             E
I remembered where

D7                 A5
Its segments originated
F                            E
It was a great tree standing well

D7                          A5
Its roots dug deep into the ground
F                             E
It’s great arms once stretched out
D7                               A5
It’s leaves spread deep into the clouds
C                                E
Oh tree sorry this is the way it had to be
               F                               Fm
Sorry we often see your limbs as potential energy

Oh tree how I wish I could hear your stories
Your conversations with the wind
how you earn your twists and bends 
my ear to you I lend oh tree
C                                  E
I think you’ve got the best philosophy
Keep the center of your mass low because you’re thirsty 
Allowing for perpetual growth without falling down

(Use these from lines 25-28)
Oh my hatchet with ambition you resist my stride
Who knew that something could be so strong in the afterlife
Can’t feel my fingers I’ve been at this a while
I’ll shake the silence until you're part of the pile 

Oh tree I’ll show you a way to be free
E                              F
I’ll set fire to your body and stare into the sunlight that you’ve 
                 Fm     C
captured in your days oh tree 
I hope your flickering wisdom will show me
E                          F
how to live my life in harmony
Give me direction for my journey as your 
Dm                  Fm
ashes rise into the sky
Dm                    Fm
No longer dependent on her
Dm                              Fm                         C
You can fly like the birds that once used your branches to perch
