HEALING NATURE

Cast away the burdens of society.
Letís travel to a place of warm security.
Down across the valley, into the sunlit fields,
Wading through the streams, letting mother nature heal.

Healing all our wounds of civilization,
Mother nature brings her revelation.
All the squirrels will play among the trees,
And the birds will sing and glide upon the breeze.

Cast away the troubles of your occupations,
And travel with me to these hidden places.
All along the valleys, walking through the trees,
You will find relief in being free.

And when itís time to go back home behind the walls
Of civilization and society so-called,
When stress gets you down and you have to get away,
Remember mother nature and return to her some day.

Antlers, Oklahoma, 1997
(lyrics co-authored by John Mark Ramsey II)
