Track Info

[Intro]
C C
C C
[Chorus]
C We split folks

into groups of threes
F And name them

after kinds of trees
Dm It's how I like

to look at folks
G As willow trees,

or pines, or oaks
[Verse]
C Willows are forgettable Am They could be called a weed F And time with them's regrettable Dm They'll suck you dry

when you're in need
[Verse]

C They burst your pipes,

and then their switches
Am Might be used to

bust your britches
F Willows ain't my

kind of tree
Dm They're not a source
G
of love for me
[Chorus]
C We split folks

into groups of threes
F And name them

after kinds of trees
Dm It's how I like

to look at folks
G As willow trees,

or pines, or oaks
[Verse]

C Pines give off a

wondrous smell
Am And they're green

throughout the year
F Make a bed of

needles soft as hell
Dm And bolster

Christmas cheer
[Verse]

C You bust their bark

and they get sticky
Am Embracing one

is often tricky
F They're lonely and

that's what ain't for me
Dm I need to love
G
a stronger tree
[Chorus]
C We split folks

into groups of threes
F And name them

after kinds of trees
Dm It's how I like

to look at folks
G As willow trees,

or pines, or oaks
[Verse]

C And so we find

the able oak
Am Who changes colors,

loses leaves
F Strength and

patience ain't no joke
Dm That's what this

man believes
[Verse]

C I build a house,

I build a chair
Am A table, bed,

from that tree there
F An oak grows slowly

and provides
Dm It's with an oak
G
my love resides
[Outro]
Dm It's with an oak
G
my love resides
F It's with an oak
Bb
my love resides
[Outro]
C C
