The Lyrics

Saw a remarkable video of some extremely talented bluegrass musicians doing a cover of "White Rabbit", of all things The lead guitarist, dressed as the Red Queen is named Molly Tuttle, who lost all her hair at the age of three due to an autoimmune disorder known as Alopecia. A second song I clicked on was a really touching song called "Crooked Tree" which appears to be a metaphor for her life. So, I'm going to reverse the process and do a song about what this metaphor actually means.
Three kids in the Palo
One was female, two were boys
Bluegrass strings and violin bows
Became her favorite toys
And though they sounded different
They filled her house with joy
With the way she played
A chickadee flew up one day
And warned her to beware
A witch named Alopecia
Would come and steal away her hair
And every girl and boy in school
Would turn and stop and stare
As she walked by

Oh cant you see .. Ms Alopie
She was a trial for Molly T
It made her grow .. resiliently
Oh, Im glad to know Ms Molly T

The normal folks were hesitant
In showing their goodwill
The grownups would come up to her
And ask if she was ill
And it seemed the more she used her wigs
The odder she felt still
As the years went by
But Molly had some knowledge
That proved to be godsend
She knew that there were others
And forever they'd be friends
And thats the way she knew
Her sense of otherness would end
Cause she's not alone

Oh cant you see .. these crooked trees
They fought the witch with Molly T
They helped to cure despondency
Oh, Im glad they're friends of Molly T

People say she's different
And her way of life is strange
She took the road less traveled
Twist and turns along the way
And like her Alopecia friends
She grows stronger every day
Cause they're by her side
A young man drinks his life away
Cause his parents didnt care
A mother loses child at birth
And gives into despair
So who is she to curse the fates
For the loss of a little hair
Just a little hair

Oh cant you see .. the crooked tree
Is a metaphor of Molly T
She sings her song .. so joyfully
Im glad to play with Molly T
Oh, Im glad to play with Molly T

The word "Palo" in the first line refers to Palo Alto, CA where Mollie was raised. Its also the Spanish for tree, which tends to track the opening line in the OS .. Two TREES in the FOREST.
