Written by Geddy Lee, Alex Lifeson, Neil Peart

Intro: D  F#m  C#m  A  E  G  A  Bm  A/Bm Bm  

       D                F#m  
There is unrest in the forest,  
       C#m                   A  
There is trouble with The Trees,  
      E                      G  
For the Maples want more sunlight  
A       Bm    A/Bm         Bm  
And the Oaks ignore their pleas.  
D  F#m  C#m  A  E  G  A  Bm  A/Bm Bm  
D   A   Bm  
F#m   G  
   A                     Bm  
The trouble with the maples  
         G           D                 A  
and they're quite convinced they're right  
they say the Oaks are just too lofty  
        G          D       A  
and they grab up all the light  
but the Oaks can't help their feelings  
     G         D                A  
If they like the way they're made  
And they wonder why the maples  
Can't be happy in their shade  
A   A/G A/F# A/E  
There is trouble  
In the forest  
       C#m                    A  
And the creatures all have fled  
while the maples  
        G             A  
scream "Opression"  
     Bm         A/Bm         Bm  
and the oaks just shake  their heads  
D  F#m  C#m  A  E  G  A  Bm  A/Bm Bm  
    A                       Bm  
So the maples formed a union  
   G           D      A  
and demanded equal rights  
  A                         Bm  
"The Oaks are just too greedy;  
     G               D         A  
We will make them give us light."  
Now there's no more Oak opression  
    G           D       A  
for they passed a noble law  
and the trees are all kept equal  
 G                     A  
by hatchet, axe, and saw.
