Dancin’ With Trees
Written By: Ric Holland ©

VERSE I
Faded out reflection
Me by myself
A look out life’s window
Pullin’ memories off the shelf

They led me down a two lane
Country road goin’ home
To the small town I grew up in
Before I took off on my own…

…And I remember…. Dad said


CHORUS
Son…go down the path
That brings joy to your heart
And makes it skip a beat
When you hear music start
Give thanks to the Lord
Don’t forget to say please
Or lose sight of the forest
When you’re dancin’ with trees


VERSE II
A summer day and some tears
Pride that couldn’t hide
As he walked down the aisle
His new bride by his side

The hour glass kept on turnin’
Once a boy now a man
His journey just beginning
And when I shook his hand…

…I said

CHORUS
Son…go down the path
That brings joy to your heart
And makes it skip a beat
When you hear music start
Give thanks to the Lord
Don’t forget to say please
Or lose sight of the forest
When you’re dancin’ with trees


BRIDGE
Sunsets come and go
White hair and a cane
My son and I talkin’
And watchin’ a game
He turned down the sound
Said…nurse I’ll stay for a while
Looked into my eyes
Then told me with a smile

…Just so you know Dad

CHORUS
I…went down the path
That brought joy to my heart
And makes it skip a beat
When I hear music start
I give thanks to the Lord
Don’t forget to say please
Or lose sight of the forest
When I’m dancin’ with trees

So Dad…don’t you worry…bout me…dancin’ with trees
