    Lyrics

    She's my knotty pine
    She leans with the wind
    She cries turpentine
    Sometimes she nettles me
    But I don't mind
    Only now and then
    When her branches lean beneath the snow
    She's knotty but nice
    Reaching for the sky
    She don't like snow 'n ice
    To leave things as they stand
    Is my advice
    She's been good to me
    So I tend to go there when I can

    She's my knotty pine
    Such a pretty scene
    She tries to be kind
    She gives birds a home
    And shelters them
    In her coat of green
    She's as green as evergreen can be

    She's a real delight
    When little breezes call
    To ruffle up her skin
    All her sap runs free
    And sticks to me
    Hidden deep within
    I will be her slave eternally

    She's my knotty pine
    She leans with the wind
    She crys turpentine
    Sometimes she nettles me
    But I don't mind
    Only now and then
    When her branches lean beneath the snow
