The Tree

This song is by Chi Coltrane and appears on the album Chi Coltrane (1972) and on the album Golden Classics (1996).

I took my troubles to the tree
Hoping I could find m way to peace
I didn't know where my life would lead
So I took my troubles to the tree
I told my story to the breeze
When no one seemed to listen to me
And like the breeze I now am free
Since I told my story to the breeze

Well, I laid me down in the sun
It's warmth and I became one
And I missed the sun when the day was done
He was such a friend to me the sun
Oh yeah—

This world can't give me any peace
It seems that love will never really be
And my troubled mind must find release
So I sat me down beneath the tree

Well, I laid me down in the sun
It's warmth and I became as one
And I missed the sun when the day was done
He was such a friend to me the sun-
Oh yeah—

I took my troubles to the tree
And God's own son looked down on me
All I know is I was blind and now I see
Since I took my troubles to the tree
And I believe we all can find the way to peace
If we take our troubles to the tree
