King Of Trees

This song is by Cat Stevens and appears on the album Buddha and the Chocolate Box (1974) and on the album On the Road to Find Out (2001).

He was the king of trees
keeper of the leaves,
A deep green guard of young
love-stained memory,
We used to meet by him
far from the hustling town
I loved you,
Now they've come to cut you down...down

He was the guardian of
days we held the same,
Beneath the shade he gave
shelter fromthe rain,
Oh Lord how it's empty now
with nothing save the breeze
I loved you,
Now they've come to burn the leaves
Don't burn the leaves

And if my mind breaks up in all
so many ways,
I know the meaning of the words "I love you",
And if my body falls inside
an early grave,
The forest and the evergreens
are coming to take me back,
So slowly
as I roll down the track

The forest and the evergreen
are coming to take me back,
The forest and the evergreen
are coming to take me back,
Please take me back!

He was the king of trees
Keeper of the glades,
The way he lightened my life
makes me so amazed,
We used to meet by him
many years ago
I loved you,
Now they've to lay the road-oh-oh,
Oh!
Don't lay the road
