(There Was A) Tall Oak Tree by Dorsey Burnette

There was a tall oak tree

That loved a babbling brook

And the babbling brook

Loved the mountain high


And the mountain high

Loved the sky above

The Creator looked down

And saw everything was

Love, love, love


No, he took a bone

And a piece of mud

He made a man and a woman

To be flesh and blood

And then along came the Devil

Up out of the ground

He tempted woman and

That spread sin all around

All around, all around


If she'd left that apple

On the apple tree

There'd be no tears or sorrow

We'd live eternally


And then along came Man

To burn the oak tree down

And now the babbling brook

Is a solid ground


And the mountain high

Don't stand so high

And there's a cloud of smoke

That covers up the clear blue sky


There was a tall oak tree

There was a tall oak tree

There was a tall oak tree
