Tall Oak Tree Written and recorded by Dorsey Burnette
G C G C G There was a tall oak tree that loved a babbling brook C G C G C G And the babbling brook loved the mountain high C G C G And the mountain high loved the sky above C D7 G C G The Creator looked down and saw everything was love love love
C G C G Then He took a bone and a piece of mud C G C G C G He made a man then a woman to be flesh and blood C G C G And then along came the devil up out of the ground C D7 G C G He tempted the woman and that spread sin all round all round all round
C G C G Now if shed left that apple on the apple tree C G D7 G There'd be no tears and sorrow we'd live eternally
C G C G And then along came man to burn the oak tree down C G C G C G And now the babbling brook is a solid ground C G C G And now the mountain high don't stand so high C D7 G C G And there's a cloud of smoke that covers up the clear blue sky
C G There was a tall oak tree C G There was a tall oak tree C D7 G There was a tall oak tree
