Sweet Rowan
Lyrics & Music: Maureen S. O'Brien, 11/5/97
Insp: JAG, and the Suite Rowan series by Win Day

With her leaves all in the wind
And her branches tall and strong
I can stand all day and watch her sway
While the rowan plays her song

REF: And it's oh, the rowan tree,
The sweetest tree the world grows.
And I'd make my nest in the sweet rowan's breast
But the rowan doesn't know.

With her roots dug deep in the land
And her boughs stretched t'ward the sun
She dances there between earth and air
She can fly, but never will she run.
REF:

I have looked both east and west
And I've looked from north to south
And there's none so fair as can ever compare
To the girl with the rowan-berry mouth.

REF2: And it's oh, the rowan tree,
The sweetest tree the world grows.
And I'd make my nest in the sweet rowan's breast
And my rowan well she knows.
