Disc B-5. To The Sycamore Tree
© words & music by Annie Wilson 2014

Album Note:  This is about a special place on our creek where I go to
think things over.   Experts today call this “eco-therapy,” and I’m
convinced it works!  The marvels of the water and its creatures, under
the canopy of the old tree, are indeed truly a great “comfort to me.”

Lyrics:

Come walkin with me  to the Sycamore tree
That grows by the creek water bend
That kindly old tree’s  such a comfort to me
And she listens just like an old friend

Her trunk leans out where  we can sit like a chair
As the water beneath us rolls on
We can talk as we please  ‘neath the gentle green leaves
Til our worries and troubles are gone                        

We can gaze down below  where the creek water flows
See the dance of the minnows and frogs
As the whirligigs twirl  and the damselflies swirl
And the turtle’s asleep on the log

Then we’ll turn up our eyes to the blue summer sky
Through branches the color of cream
As the Kingfisher flies and the sweet Warbler cries  
In our giant umbrella of green                       

Come walkin with me  to the Sycamore tree
That grows by the creek water bend
That kindly old tree’s  such a comfort to me
And she listens just like an old friend
