A willow tree

BluesMatters 2019


Down by the river there stood a willow tree

A hundred years ago it saw the light

It looked at people captured it looked at people free

And heard their dire mourning and delight


The willow saw them all as they came and as they went

Heard all their conversations too

It saw the new bourn babes and the oldster’s lifeline spent

So the cycle then began anew.


Down by the river there stood a willow tree

With letters engraved in its bark

By all those young lovers with their romantic plea

From early morning till the fall of dark


The willow saw them all as they came and as they went

Heard all their conversations too

It saw the new bourn babes and the oldster’s lifeline spent

So the cycle then began anew.


Down by the river there stood a willow tree

Time was lastly up it had to go

Floating down the river and into the sea

Just along the path of all life’s flow


The willow saw them all as they came and as they went

Heard all their conversations too

It saw the new bourn babes and the oldster’s lifeline spent

So the cycle then began anew.


Down by the river there stood a willow tree

A hundred years ago it saw the light

It looked at people captured it looked at people free

And heard their dire mourning and delight
