The Tree

Lawrence Watson

Verse 1

Times likes these, words fall short

They can't express what deep in our hearts.

You fight cause you love,you have no choice

Evil take cover as the pigeon-toed Soldier wages war.  

You hold water like a sponge

And you Fight until the war is won.

Your always there for your friends

Nothing can dim your light that shines within

 

Chorus-Lead(Ensemble)

(You are the tree)

From the First African Dawn

From Togo to Arkansas

Roots so deep with memory of a time when we were free

(You are the tree)

Like a  shelter in a storm

You stand for right at any cost

For common folks who have lost their way

 

Verse 2

You've known some troubled times

And you fight for those left behind

The Eugene's, Byrd's, Luima's in our live’s

Big Moma Big Daddy - passed down the pride

Now you inspire!

 

Chorus-Lead(Ensemble)

(You are the tree)

From the First African Dawn

From Togo to Arkansas

Roots so deep with memory of a time when we were free

(You are the tree)

Branches sweet with nourishment

Sturdy limbs that never bend!

For common folks who have lost their way

 

 

Bridge

(Patience)

and endurance, winning and Secret Prayer

(Endurance)

Your roots run deep, you've touched our hearts

(You just won't quit)

'Cause you know that justice deferred... is" Just us" denied

(You have been there from the very start)

You are the TREE!

 

(Courage and patience, winning, endurance, secret prayer

Nothing can dim the light shining within so bright blinds despair.

Courage and patience, winning, endurance, secret prayer

Nothing can dim the light shining within so bright blinds despair

Courage and patience, winning, endurance, secret prayer

Nothing can dim the light shining within so bright blinds despair)

Keep Your Light Shining

Tree for the Freedom Tree for the Freedom

 

You know that there’s a tree,

And I know, I now, I know it’s a tree of freedom
