Lori McKenna – The Tree lyrics
[Verse 1]
The tree grows where it's planted
Roots wide underneath
No matter how many storms pass it
The apple never falls far from the tree

[Verse 2]
The tree reaches up with its branched
Spring-time comes, blossoming
Early autumn the leaves are dancin'
And in the winter, there's wood for heat

[Chorus]
I've tried leaving and bein'
Somethin' I that was never meant to be
And I've tried stayin' ever-changing
And standing in one place just like that tree

[Verse 3]
The tree keeps watch, always swaying
A silent friend remembering
Hidden secrets, children play
In the shade of its canopy

[Chorus]
I've tried leaving and bein'
Somethin' I that was never meant to be
And I've tried stayin' ever-changing
And standing in one place just like that tree

[Verse 4]
The tree grows where it's planted
And that's the fate of a fallin' seed
No matter how many times I've denied it
The apple never falls far from the tree
The apple never falls far from the tree
