(Owens / Solberg)

 

Information:
Elvis recorded Singing Tree, which was written by A. Owens and A. Solberg, on September 12, 1967, at RCA's Nashville studios.


Lyrics:


You're the one who beckoned the wind

And fanned the flame when our love began
So don't pretend you don't know me
Our names are carved on you, singing tree

Oh, singing tree, sing to me
Call your friend, the roving wind
Maybe he can find my love
And bring her back, singing tree

Your leaves have turned from green to blue
Sometimes I think you loved her, too
But since she left and our love died
You stand petrified, singing tree

1. Oh, sing to me, singing tree
Call your friend, the roving wind
Maybe he can find my love
And bring her back, singing tree

1. 1. (repeat)
