The Girl Up in a Tree

In the mountains of Western Carolina
I found her up high in a tree
As pure as the dew in the morning
As pretty as the autumn leaves

I asked her ma’m are you a damsel
Distressed by the height of the tree
I’m waiting for my knight to find me
Was how she responded to me

Chorus:
The girl up in a tree
She’s waiting for someone to see
Her high up in a tree
But she won’t come down for me

I sat down for sometime and waited
My back on the trunk of the tree
3 hours passed and still no one
You know that I couldn’t just leave

So I reached up and grabbed the first branch and
Proceeded to climb up the tree
She smiled when she saw i was coming
This seemed kinda strange to me

Chorus:
The girl up in the tree
She’s waiting for someone to see
Her high up in a tree
But she won’t come down for me

So I climbed up til finally I reached her
Our eyes met she started to cry
I have been waiting my whole life
For someone like you to pass by

Confused, I had but to ask her
My dear tell me what do you mean
I climbed up to wait for my true love
To test if he’d climb up for me

Chorus:
The girl up in the tree
She’s waiting for someone like me
High up in a tree
Now she’ll climb down, with me

Story: This song is a short little fairy tale. I am a huge fan of happily ever after stories and that’s what this is. I wouldn’t be able to write this without some sort of inspiration though…and maybe a little embellishment. :) “All good stories deserve embellishment” -Gandalf
