I am searching for the song (recitation) recorded by Jimmy Davis in Real Audio or a similar MP3 player.

Thanks for any help.

Johnny Cash also did it. You might be able to find one of his version, if that would work for you.

Lyrics copied from http://www.lyricsdepot.com/
As sung by Johnny Cash:

TALLER THAN TREES

On your knees you are taller than trees
You can look over heartaches and pain
When my faith is gone to my knees I will go
Growing stronger and taller than trees

One night it was a long time ago now
I knelt at my mother's knee
And she said son lift up your eyes to him in the skies
And you'll grow like the mighty oaks
But you son created in image of God
Can become taller than the tallest trees
And this was the answer I felt
As down at her knees I knelt

On your knees you're taller than trees
You can look over all your heartaches
And son you can look over all of your pains
When my faith is gone to my knees I will go
Growing stronger and taller than trees

As sung by Elton Britt:

TALLER THAN TREES
(Lee Ferebee)
« © '55 Robbins Catalog, ASCAP »

(When my faith is gone to my knees I will go
Growing stronger and taller than trees)

One day I knelt by the old oak tree
I was weary and heartsick I was blue
I lifted my eyes and prayed to the skies
Let me grow like the mighty folks do

And this was the answer I felt
As under the oak tree I knelt
(On your knees you're taller than trees
You can look over heartaches and fears)
When my faith is low to my knees I will go
Growing stronger and taller than trees

On your knees you're taller than trees
You can look over heartaches and fears
When my faith is low to my knees I will go
Growing stronger and taller than trees

Recorded by Elton Britt, The Browns, Johnny Cash, Jimmie Davis, Don Gibson, and The Old Friends Quartet.
