lyrics:  

In the California valleys, where the redwoods used to grow
I once had my heart broke, by a girl I used to know
She said I'd been exploring, some parts she'd rather not show
Those trail-less river canyons, where the sapling redwood grows
I've been born into a culture, that somehow went so wrong
So as to step up and grab the microphone
To sing the end of an old old song
To sing the end of an old old song

Some folks say the poison oak
Warns you where you best not go
And I too have been humbled by sister poison oak
Sister Oak, Sister Oak
Growing by the creek-
She said this road has gone too far
This road has cut too deep

In the California valleys, when the redwoods used to grow
The poison oak was balanced, with the other plants we know
The smell of the bay tree lingers, on every logger's fingers
But the poison oak has a message, that's harder to forget
So for every tree we cut, for every logging deal
Our sweet ally sister oak was saying
Give the forest some time to heal
Give the forest some time to heal

Brother my sweet brother
Strolling by the creek
He said this road has gone to
