about

From the upcoming album "Come on Home"

lyrics

If you wanna come on down
we can make a sweet sweet sound
Sharing tales of love and woe
on a mountaintop plateau

Him and her and you and me
singing all in harmony
Joining forces with the leaves
underneath a shady tree

I don't need much to feel free
Someday I know we will be
Birds can fly and so can we
Time will come just wait and see

Finding what we're put here for
is never easy to be sure
But try and sing it loud enough
on an ol' Missouri bluff

We can do it anywhere
Home is where our hearts are there
Find it in your heart to share
Sing your song and let it blare

I don't need much to feel free
Someday I know we will be
Birds can fly and so can we
Time will come just wait and see

Come on now and take my hand
We'll go to the promised land
Oh, how happy we will be
Come on clap along with me
