Go from another man's heel
If God doesn't want me,
Then nobody will
There's a path to your freedom
In your mama's clothes drawer
And it might just get you in

Poor as a beggar man's child
A life on the street has
Been nothing but shame
I'm gonna crawl to that castle
Gonna knock on the door
And they might just let me in

I said, "Magnolia tree,
Would you focus on me?
We'll have a great big house in heaven."

Fruit from a lavendar tree
I seek the comfort of sweetness
But it's rotten my teeth
When the birds and the scarecrows
Are getting along,
You'd think that they might just let me in

I said, "Magnolia tree,
Would you focus on me?
We'll have a great big house in heaven."

I said, "Magnolia tree,
Put your branches on me
And we could leave this world together."

The further you get from the sweet of summer,
The closer you get to home
The further you get from the sweet of summer
I said, why you ever want to be somewhere you're not
When you're never gonna find a place to untie your knot

I said, "Magnolia tree,
Would you focus on me?
We'll have a great big house in heaven."

I said, "Magnolia tree,
Put your branches on me.
And we could leave this world together."

I said, "Magnolia tree,
Would you focus on me?
We'll have a great big house in heaven."

I said, "Magnolia tree,
Put your branches on me.
And we could leave this world together.
We could leave this world together.
We could leave this world together."

    General CommentInstead of "through" I thought he said "fruit"... and then after that.. "from a ???? tree."

    Ahh idk. I wish he'd post the lyrics up, but these seem pretty right.

    As for the meaning of the song, I have no idea.

    I miss Sullivan =/ but this song is incredible and I can't wait to hear what else he puts up =]]
