C                          Dm
I think that I shall never see
Fm                  C7   C9  C7
A poem lovely as a tree.
F              Gb             C
A tree whose hungry mouth is pressed
C7                                  F7
Against the Earth's sweet flowing breast;

  Bm7   F    C    F  C       D7
A tree that looks at God all day,
G7                  Em   G   C
And lifts her leafy arms to pray.

(REPEAT INTRO)

C                         Dm
A tree that may in Summer wear
Fm                      C7    C9  C7
A nest of robins in her hair;
F          Gb              C
Upon whose bosom snow has lain;
C7                         F
Who intimately lives with rain.

Fm         C       Gb        C
Poems are made by fools like me,
         Dm7     G7     C
But only God can make a tree.

   C                                      D7   Fm7   C
