Between two trees - - - there lies a story true,
A story true - - - that I will tell to you;
'Twas there that I - - - first fell in love with Sue,
Her hair was gold - - - her eyes were oh, so blue.

Between two trees - - - we kissed as lovers do,
As lovers do - - - who know their love is true;
We carved a heart - - - a heart deep in each tree,
One heart for her - - - and one heart for me.

But then we wed - - - we wed between two trees,
Between two trees - - - we vowed till eternity;
The trees looked down - - - looked down as though to say,
God bless your love - - - on this your wedding day.

Between two trees - - - the years have swiftly flown,
Have swiftly flown - - - now I am all alone;
But I have my book - - - my book of memories,
Of the one who sleeps - - - she sleeps between two trees.

Between two trees - - - we kissed as lovers do,
As lovers do - - - who know their love is true;
We carved a heart - - - a heart deep in each tree,
One heart for her - - - and one heart for me.
One heart for her - - - and one heart for me.
