(there Was A) Tall Oak Tree

(There Was a) Tall Oak Tree

Dorsey Burnette



There was a tall oak tree

That loved a babblin?brook,

And the babblin?brook

loved the mountain high,

Anf the mountain high

Loved the sky above.

The Creator looked down

And saw everything was love, love, love.



No, he took a bone

And a piece of mud --

He made a man and a woman

To be flesh and blood.

And then along came the devil

Up out of the ground --

He tempted the woman,

And that spread sin all round, all round, all round.



Now, if shed left that apple

On that apple tree,

Thered be no tears or sorrow,

Wed live eternally.



And then along came Man

And chopped the oak tree down

And now the babblin?brook

Is solid ground.

And now the mountain high

Dont stand so high,

And theres a cloud of smoke

That covers up the clear blue sky.



There was a tall oak tree,

There was a tall oak tree,

There was a tall oak tree. From: "Roy T. O'Conner"
