lyrics

I went walking I went down
a trail I’ve never seen
something whispered to my back
a tree so tall and green
“Tell me Mister, tell me please
how does it feel to talk to trees?”
I answered with a question,
“Well, do you have some good stories?”
I had figured that old boy
has not seen much out here
The woods are quiet except for storms
and then you shake in fear
“I have many I could tell,
Why this one day I nearly fell.”
He said with weary words
“I hold all kinds of birds.”
Unimpressed I moved on
and only as for me
Next time I am in these woods
I’ll just ignore the trees
