Merry Christmas

The sun shines on 
This ol’ frosty ridge 
Cardinals hoping to find 
Seed on the lawn 
Just a smidge 
Tennessee on my mind... 

Chimney smoke fills 
The evening skies 
Blends into the Heavens 
Mountains grow still 
Until the sunrise 
As Christmas begins... 

I took a ride 
Away from there 
Oh how I wish to be 
Mountainside 
It’s my prayer 
Christmas in Tennessee... 

It’s not a time of day 
Or hour at night 
It’s just a feeling 
It’s the way 
It’s the light 
Immersed in healing... 

The moonlight 
Casts a glow 
Across December’s freeze 
Glitters in the night 
On the new fallen snow 
Christmas in Tennessee... 

I took a ride
Away from there 
Oh how I wish to be 
Mountainside 
It’s my prayer 
Christmas in Tennessee...
