A Tree Song
Last updated: 22.01.22
Peter Bellamy set Rudyard Kipling's A Tree Song to his own tune. I sang this song whilst a member of the Tyneside Maritime Chorus led by Benny Graham. It is all in praise in the trees that serve Old England.
Sing Oak, and Ash, and Thorn, good sirs.
All of a Midsummer morn!
England shall bide till Judgment Tide,
By Oak, and Ash, and Thorn.

This song may be found in the Tyneside Maritime Chorus songbook
