THE LOVING TREE

 

There's a place in the valley, down by the river

That's always been special to me

It's a place that I go to when I'm feeling blue

And your memory is calling to me

Down by the old loving tree

 

Whenever I go there I know that you'll be there

The leaves seem to whisper your name

And I feel you beside me like it used to be

Under the old loving tree         

Under the old loving tree          

 

Under the old loving tree

Where our love we would swear

Carefree young lovers

We danced just like leaves in the air

Laughing & so sure of just what the future would be

Yeah life was so simple down there by the old loving tree

 

Twisted by fortune & parted by fate

I wonder was this meant to be?

But in times of trouble my heart keeps on leading me

Back to that sweet mystery

That we found 'neath the old loving tree

                    

Under the old loving tree

Where our love we would swear

Carefree young lovers

We danced just like leaves in the air

Laughing & so sure of just what the future would be

Yeah life was so simple down there by the old loving tree
