Lyrics

Boo Radley's Tree

Feb. 1 2017

Verse
G G7 C Am

G G7 C
There's a switch that blows gentle and curving
Am G
Hanging from Boo Radley's tree
G7 C
It cries in chorus with branches
Am G G7 C Am
Where the wind has stripped all of it's leaves


The tree has lasted in Maycomb a century
Giving shelter to the enslaved and the free
And now its knothole is filled with sweet presents
Intended for Jem and for me

Chorus
D D dim5
It's like the sky has opened up
A A7
and bestowed all of its gifts on us
D D dim5
It's grayness, unbroken
A A7
Pure sugar to be spun
D D dim5
And we stay so open
A A7
While the world around us rages on
D D dim5
Entranced by powdery foil
A A7
Around a sweet strip of gum

D D dim5 A A7 (twice
G G7 C Am


Verse

Foot washing Baptists
Trapped in a house with nothing to do but think
But the quiet solitude
And prayerful sweet sounds can't scrub their hearts free of sin

And Boo spent his whole life repenting
for wanting to live. And you
can hear him laughing and crying
in the branches and wind

Chorus

It's like the sky has opened up
and bestowed all of its gifts on us
It's grayness unbroken
Pure sugar to be spun

And we never stop hoping
that he will come outside
And play away the morning
For all of the years he was denied

It's like the sky has opened up
and bestowed all of its gifts on us
And the knothole filled with treasure
Finds the answer to every lost cause

Verse

Boo Radley's tree
sits regal as an eagle
holding gifts for Jem and for me
