Tree Of Hearts 
performed by Bryan White on the album 'The Right Place' 
written by Skip Ewing and Don Sampson 
 
G                  C 
On a tree inside a heart 
                 D                        G       
A dull boy scout knife took half a day to carve 
        G         C 
Michael loves Caroline 
                 D               G 
He'd just turned ten and she was nine 
           G                   C 
The summer she turned sweet sixteen 
                     D                         G 
He finally found his nerve and took her out to see 
             G               C 
And what she saw through her tears 
          D                G 
Was seven hearts for seven years 
         C       G         D             G 
And they stood beneath the tree of hearts 
         C             G            D        
And they watched their feelings grow 
         C            G     D       G 
And they swore they'd never be apart 
Em        C          D 
True love left its mark 
C      D         G 
On the tree of hearts 
          G                    C 
The tenth time he carved their names 
    D                          G 
Caroline's dad was giving her away 
        G                 C 
There beneath the shelter of  
            D                         G 
The tree of hearts they pledged their love 
         C                    G 
And then four hearts down the road 
                 C        Em       D 
They brought the first of two born home 
         C        G         D             G 
And they played beneath the tree of hearts 
         C             G            D 
And they watched their children grow 
           C            G     D       G 
Where they swore they'd never be apart 
Em        C          D 
True love left its mark 
C      D         G 
On the tree of hearts 
       C        Em    D 
In the blinking of an eye 
         C           D 
Somehow  fifty-seven hearts flew by 
      G            C 
Fifty-eight, fifty-nine 
       D             G 
Sixty, he missed Caroline 
      G            C 
Sixty-one, Michael knew 
               D             G 
There wouldn't be a sixty-two 
         C     G         D             G 
Now they lay beneath the tree of hearts  
        C           G              D 
You can watch their love still grow  
           C            G     D       G 
Where they swore they'd never be apart 
Em        C          D 
True love left its mark 
C     D         G 
On my tree of hearts 
 
Note that the rhythm in this song is kind of odd, so you're usually  
switching chords in a place that looks funny on paper.  You should  
definitely listen to the song to get a handle on the rhythm before you  
try anything.  I don't know if this is the same key as Bryan sings it  
in, because I put chords to it in a key that my voice can handle, but as  
transcribed it sounds all right.  If you have any corrections, feel free  
to e-mail me.
