I sat right back and I closed my eyes
And I left this place where poor souls die
I saw that buck and I watched him fall
And I felt like I had left it all

I felt I was there, so far from here
Lost in the hills of the blue ridge dear

With elbow room and air so clear
In a land of horns with the heavens near

A bluegrass home is wide and free
Where the land itself is all I need
A dream to roam has been my yoke
And this weary world is a cruel joke

Old Daniel Boone as he wandered south
Found the Cumberland Gap and he set out north
Saw Kentucky grass and he laid it straight
Said, “This land here must be Heaven’s gate”


Thank You, Lord, for this gift of song
When you’re doomed to a world where you don’t belong
A shady street is a nice retreat
But there’s a world out there that you’re meant to meet
