The Pine Tree

Lyrics written by: Jennifer

June:
I leaned my back against you
Thinking you were an oak
I knew the wind could bend you
But I can’t believe you broke

Johnny: No, the wind could never break me
Only your false love
June: Honey, I’ve been true
I swear by God above

Johnny:
I thought you were a willow
But you never wept for me
You went roaming in the wildwood
Like a ship that roams the sea

June:
The willow tree is fickle
And it weeps in the morning dew
My love is a pine tree
And that’s the only tree that’s true

Johnny:
If I was mistaken
Then take my eyes away
You made a bed in the wildwood
And that’s where I saw you lay

June:
Honey, your eyes deceived you
It’s true I touched the ground
But I never slept there
I never let my long hair down

Johnny:
Love is like a thorn bush
Touch it and you will find
You’ll prick your fingers
And leave the sweetest flower behind

June:
Love, oh, love
Oh, what have you done to me
You set me a drifting
Like a ship upon a sea

Johnny: Yes, a ship there is I see you
And you belong to me
June: My love is the ocean
A deeper love cannot be

Johnny:
Yeah, well I guess I was mistaken
And woman, I want you back
You never have left my heart
Now honey baby, that’s a fact

Both:
Come to me pine tree
And we will never part
We’ll put our roots down
Deep in each other’s heart

Come to me pine tree
And we will never part
We’ll put our roots down
Deep in each other’s heart

Come to me pine tree
And we will never part
We’ll put our roots down
Deep in each other’s heart
