  I'll Plant My Own Tree

 

 

I'll Plant My Own Tree

Iíll plant my own tree and Iíll make it grow.
My tree will not be just one in a row.
My tree will offer shade
when strangers go by.
If youíre a stranger, brother, well so am I.
Come tomorrow all that I see is my tree,
oh, Lord, what a sight.
Let someone stop me and I will put up a fight.
Itís my yard so Iíll try hard
to welcome friends I have yet to know.
Oh, Iíll plant my own tree,
my own tree,
and Iíll make it grow.

My tree will not be just one in a row.
My tree will offer shade
when strangers go by.
If youíre a stranger, brother, well so am I.
Come tomorrow all that I see is my tree,
oh, Lord, what a sight.
Let someone stop me and I will put up a fight.
Itís my yard so Iíll try hard
to welcome friends I have yet to know.
Oh, Iíll plant my own tree,
my own tree,
and Iíll make it grow.
