Once in my youth, I stood on this mountain,
And planted some pines in the sand.
Every day, I'd look their way,
But just couldn't understand...
Why they never grew, like I thought they should do,
I just couldn't understand why,
Now I've rambled around, this wide world through,
And today I just happened by.

Chorus:
Tall pines, tall pines,
Reaching up on the sky.
Tall pines, tall pines,
I'll bet you wouldn't know me now.

I'll never forget, the morning I left,
The hum of the bees in the hay.
And the farther I walked, the harder they talk,
Now silent it seems there today.
There's that old red fence, we built inch by inch,
Surrounding the old family graves.
And there's that one bless'd stone, standing all alone,
There waitin' to join me in the shade.

Chorus:...

Chorus:
Tall pines, tall pines,
Reaching up on the sky.
Tall pines, tall pines,
I've come home to sleep beneath your pines.
