Four new trees
(on Hail and farewell, Gothenburg album)

D                                      D6add11
the first new tree is tall and good it gives hard dark brown burning wood
when winter comes it stands right outside with its blossom-laden arms spread wide

D                                                D6add11
the second new tree gives out sweet sticky fruit and it took a long time to take root
sometimes we thought it had given up the spirit but now it makes me happy when i'm just standing near it

D                                                D6add11
the third new tree stands just west of the barn its best branches grow thicker than my arm
i will water him everyday                        and i will chase all the termites away

D              Asus4            G
but the fourth new tree is my enemy
yeah the fourth new tree shouldn't be here
the fourth new tree sets its tendrils through the water mains and tries to poison me
D                    Asus4               D
his leaves are thick always falling and pure
