You saw me in my grave clothes
The first day we met
For forty days I trembled
For forty more I wept

We carved our letters on an oak tree
And around those letters carved a heart
And around that tree we built a white picket fence
Outside the fence we kept the dark

Now fences don't keep out the darkness
And darkness can't discern the thief
The thief who'd sneak into our garden
And chop down our oak tree

When I hear that oak tree fallin'
I'll come lookin' for that man
As you stand there cold and crying
With the axe blade in your hand
