about

First of many new custom songs I've written for people over the last year. This one is for Ella, who's headed off to college, from her dad.

lyrics

You know the steps to the Midwest shuffle
Followed the path of the dotted line
The Bluegrass to the Mississippi
Nothing’s as precious as my time with you

I envy everyone
Who will get to meet you
As you make the road your own
They’ll see what I have known
Nothing will defeat you
Make this dusty rock your home

There is a world waiting out there for you
Up to the lighthouse, look around
Not every step will be free and easy
Not every footfall find solid ground

But you’ve got the strength to beat
The loftiest of fears
Anything that holds you back
Keep climbing till you breath
The sweetness of the air
Up above this thirsty ground

Go on, take a look around
Just stay up above this thirsty ground
Go on, take a look around
Just stay up above this thirsty ground

(As you make the road your own)
(As you make the road your own)
