“Tall, Tall Trees” is a song co-written by American singers George Jones and Roger Miller. Both singers recorded their own versions: Jones on his 1958 album Long Live King George, and Miller on his 1970 album A Trip in the Country.

However, it was not until October 1995 that the song was released as a single, by Alan Jackson, as one of the newly recorded tracks for his 1995 compilation album The Greatest Hits Collection. Jackson’s cover was his eleventh Number One hit on the Billboard country charts.

The song is an up-tempo in which the narrator promises to his significant other that he will give her anything she desires, whether it be a “big limousine”, a “great big mansion”, or “tall, tall trees and all the water in the seas”.

In the liner notes for his Greatest hits album, Jackson wrote,”This is an old Roger Miller song I stumbled across. It’s a real fun song with a Cajun feel. I’ve always been a big fan of Roger’s and when it came time to record a couple of new songs for this greatest hits, I couldn’t resist. After I recorded it, we found out that George Jones is a co-writer – I think George had even forgotten he’d written it. I’m proud to have the chance to record a song written by two of my favorites.

Alan Jackson – Tall tall trees Lyrics
If you want to drive a big limousine
I’ll buy the longest one you’ve ever seen
I’ll buy you tall, tall trees
On all the waters and the seas
I’m a fool, fool, fool for you
If you want to own a great big mansion
Well I’ll give it my utmost attention
I’ll buy you tall, tall trees
On all the waters and the seas
I’m a fool, fool, fool for you
Well I’m a fool, a fool for you
It may take awhile, but I’ll prove it’s true
Well if it’s lovin’ you want, then I’ve got it
If it’s money you want, then I’ll get it
I’ll buy you tall, tall trees
On all the waters and the seas
I’m a fool, fool, fool for you (Yahoo)

If you want to take a trip across the ocean

I’ll travel anywhere you take a notion
I’ll buy you tall, tall trees
On all the waters and the seas
I’m a fool, fool, fool for you
If you want to own a great big mansion
Well I’ll give it my utmost attention
I’ll buy you tall, tall trees
On all the waters and the seas
I’m a fool, fool, fool for you
Well I’m a fool, a fool for you
It may take awhile, but I’ll prove it’s true
Well if it’s lovin’ you want, then I’ve got it
If it’s money you want, then I’ll get it
I’ll buy you tall, tall trees
On all the waters and the seas
I’m a fool, fool, fool for you
Yeah, I’m a fool, fool, fool for you
