Every so often, we are reminded of the miraculous gift of being alive. This song was composed in a traditional unaccompanied ballad style early one morning on the Shenandoah Parkway in Virginia.

lyrics

Standing on Shenandoah rocky top, I realized
I’m so lucky it’s absurd
Cause I’m as wild as a deer, free as a bird
Wild as a deer free as a bird

Bow your head unto the earth
you are connected
reach your hand into the sky
you are connected
There’s no worry there’s no hurry
you are connected
Everybody everything is waiting for you
are connected

Hold your hand unto your heart
It is beating
The pulse of life a flowing river
You are connected

There’s no worry there’s no hurry
You are connected
Everybody everything is waiting for you
Are connected

Standing on Shenandoah rocky top, I realized
I’m so lucky it’s absurd
Cause I’m as wild as a deer, free as a bird
Wild as a deer free as a bird
