The Night Ol’ Trees Came To Town

The trees are rollin’
Whoa the trees are rollin’ yeah yeah
Whoa the trees are rollin’
Somebody’s gonna touch the sky tonight

I felt the hair stand up on the earth today
I felt the nighttime suddenly change into day
And when the lights turned down there was no one around to hear the sound

The trees are rollin’
Whoa the trees are rollin’ yeah yeah
Whoa the trees are rollin’
Somebody’s gonna touch the sky tonight

I felt the earth move when he stepped on the ground
It’s like the buildings jumped when he put his foot down
And then they leapt up into his hands and
All he left was a long list of lonely demands

Whoa the trees are rollin’
Whoa the trees are rollin’ yeah yeah
Whoa the trees are rollin’ yeah
Somebody’s gonna touch the sky tonight

I saw a man dead face down in the gutter
He had one leg they couldn’t find the other
Then they said when he went down
he hit the ground so hard he bounced up and down I said

Whoa the trees are rollin’
Whoa the trees are rollin’ yeah yeah
Whoa the trees are rollin’
Somebody’s gonna touch the sky tonight

Ya’ll gotta catch this man he’s a criminal
Why can’t you get him and I can
I’ma leap on over the falls
I’ll pick him off I’ll bring him back to you all

Whoa the trees are rollin’
Whoa the trees are rollin’ yeah yeah
Whoa the trees are rollin’
Somebody’s gonna touch the sky tonight

Gotta stop him he’s a felon on the run with a gun
Gotta watch him cops’ll get him
But believe when he’s done
Well there ain’t gonna be no one alive
And oh yeah they gonna touch the sky
And you can’t run you can’t hide
‘Cause the Trees’ll get you anywhere you want to go

Whoa the trees are rollin’
Whoa the trees are rollin’ yeah yeah
Whoa the trees are rollin’
Somebody’s gonna touch the sky tonight
