about

A country song I wrote while attending a workshop at Featherock Conference Center (what a great place!)

lyrics

On a little piece of Texas, where twisted live oaks grow
You can find what you've been needing for your body and your soul
It's a place out in the country, where the cows are all polite
And the big blue sky surrounds you 'til the stars come out a night

Oh, Featherock! My sweet Featherock!
Leave your troubles behind when you enter through her gate
Oh, Featherock! My sweet Featherock!
An oasis in the middle of the Lone Star state

There's salsa on the table, a pool in the backyard
Which feels refreshing after playing hoops out in the barn
The neighbors all are friendly, and wave as they drive by
You'll always find a big Texan smile whenever you say "Hi"

Oh, Featherock! My sweet Featherock!
Leave your troubles behind when you enter through her gate
Oh, Featherock! My sweet Featherock!
An oasis in the middle of the Lone Star state

In the spring blue bonnets blossom, while the scent of their perfume
Calls the hummingbirds and butterflies to collect their morning dew
And when you hear the wind blow through the oaks, pecans, and pines
It's the voice of God reminding you He is always by your side

Oh, Featherock! My sweet Featherock!
Leave your troubles behind when you enter through her gate
Oh, Featherock! My sweet Featherock!
An oasis in the middle of the Lone Star state
Oh, Featherock! My sweet Featherock!
An oasis in the middle of the Lone Star state
