about

Chris, our resident songwriter, wrote this song about the trek from his home in Western Maryland up to Boston, MA, leaving behind all that he held dear to pursue his dreams of making the world a better place through music.

lyrics

(1st verse)
I left behind the Blue Ridge Mountains
And the only love I'd ever known
I left behind a true friend
For a land they call New England
I stopped in Johnson City, then went straight up Eighty-one
Till I ended up in Harrisburg, PA
Then it's East to New York City, a most unfamiliar town
Where the mountains are made of brick and steel

(chorus)
Take me home, to the valley
Where the river runs clear and true
Take me home, to the mountains
Where the skies are always blue

(2nd verse)
Now I'm off where you can't follow
My life and love anymore
Yes I've gone off to wander
In a land they call New England
When I call on you to heal my old and troubled soul
The only sound I'll hear is the city cry
When I see you in my dreams, I wake to find that you're not there
Only mountains made of brick and steel

(chorus)
Take me home, to the valley
Where the river runs clear and true
Take me home, to the mountains
Where the skies are always blue

(chorus)
Take me home, to the valley
Where the river runs clear and true
Take me home, to the mountains
Where the skies are always blue
Where the skies are always blue
