"Trees lay by" as written by and Josephine Foster....
Trees lay by, I'm going away
The last holy holyday
Trees lay by, it's time to fold
It's time to fold away.

I'm going away
Just roll me by, I cannot stay ('bye, brothers good)
Going to the sky
Won't need your branches to climb, in the by'n'by.

Trees lay by, I'm going away
The last holy holyday
Trees lay by, it's time to fold
It's time to fold away.

Not north nor south
Won't be trespassing in my new house (no sister should)
Nor east nor west
Won't need your blanket for this long rest

Trees lay by, I'm going away
The last holy holyday
Trees lay by, it's time to fold
It's time to fold away.
