The Dream Tree: Video- Lyrics


The Dream Tree From the album - Illuminations by Buffy Sainte-Marie

Lo how the dream tree is sighing and shaking
Pretty dreams fall down on thee
Oh how my poor heart is crying and aching
Longing for one who is longing for me.

I'll sit at home with a light in the window
back to the fire and eyes to, the sea
I'll sit at home with my hand on the cradle
Rocking the love he has given to me.

Long are the hours and long is the waiting
Many the candle to stand and be burned
Women of whalers and women of sailors
soon learn the meaning of worry and yearn.

Women sing their songs of
safe returning for their men
Let him only, one day, some day
Touch my hair again.

Lo how the dream tree is sighing and shaking
Pretty dreams fall down on thee
Oh how my poor heart is crying and aching
Longing for one who is longing for me.

Hello Buffy, Please come to the Long House Church in Vancouver and sing some of your wonder filled songs. The church is a very spiritual place Berry and Daniel help the people others deem unworthy. If you came with your beautiful voice perhaps G-d would give the church a new floor I for one would love to listen to you sing in the church. The Long House Church is a very spiritual place even with the rats and the clutter and the occasional 'stink' But it is filled with goodness and love for EVERYONE.
Please come.
Shalom,
Merry-lynn
