Lyrics

There's a tree by the river

And it's lived a hundred years

Sheds its leaves on the river

But, it never sheds a tear

 

It's a home for so many

And it breaths into the air

It's alive and it's strong

But it doesn't know it's there

 

And the sun shines above it

And it steals the golden rays

And a young tree beside it

Never knows the light of day

 

There's a nest in the branches

In its shade sits a man

He's alive and he knows it

But he doesn't understand

 

And the sun rises

And the sun goes down 

And it gets back up

But it sets back down

And once more it rises

But it falls again

And a man by a river thinks

The earth must spin

 

There's a tree by the river

And it's lived a hundred years...
