From the recording Endless Road

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...
