There Was a Tree

I learned this song from Caravan Camp Director, Dave Harris, who I originally had a hard time liking. But Dave worked magic with some of the rowdiest kids in camp so I knew he had something and that I needed to take a look inside myself to figure out what my problem was. Eventually I learned to not take myself so seriously and to laugh more. Thanks, Dave!
