Song Description

A man describing his love for his woman.

Story Behind the Song

Back in the old days, when people did land surveys, They didn't have modern conveniences likes lasers or GPS. They had to rely on the natural markers around them to establish boundaries. If the only thing available at the time was a tree, the surveyor would make a unique mark on the tree and refer to it in his notes. These trees were called Witness Trees and were very important. The Witness Tree in this song is equally important to this man as he describes his love for his woman.

Lyrics

THE WITNESS TREE

My darlin? Angel
I?ve loved you since you were just a child
Even after all these long years
You can still melt me with your smile

But no one could ever really know
Just how strong our love can be
Nobody but me and you, Baby
And that old Witness Tree

Well, I been through fire and rain
Lord and I put you through some, too
Through all my trials and tribulations, Girl
You stuck with me like glue

Our hearts are like a beacon
Shinin? bright for everyone to see
Since we pledged our love, Baby
Under that old Witness Tree

As I take the time to think back
About all of those that have come and gone
Many folks have dropped by the wayside
But I know we?ll carry on

I?ll be by your side, Darlin?
And I know that you?ll agree
That our love has grown stronger
Stronger than that old Witness Tree
