Happy Memorial Day

I thank God for my freedom and for those who fought for me to have it. In honor of our veterans, HERE is my book on American history, ‘America Come Home’ on sale on Amazon. It is a coffee table book of quotes illustrating how much the culture has changed, including quotes from our past presidents, the Founding Fathers of America and original precepts from Yale, Harvard and Princeton to show these were once Christian institutions. It is available in hardcover, paperback and Kindle on Amazon, and also at Barnes and Noble and at Walmart.com.

I also want to post THIS touching video of  a song I co-wrote years ago called “In America” recorded by Sammy Sadler, an independent artist. It is my favorite rendition of the song.

Happy Memorial Day, everyone!

Country Roads Video (Dwayna Litz)

Here is a new video of my rendition of “Country Roads” (before the coronavirus)– the beautiful old standard reminiscent of days gone by.

If only we could all take a country road out of this pandemic! Still, God has a purpose for this time, and I am glad to get to be with my mother now in the mountains to run errands for her to keep her from taking a chance on getting the contagion. I have also spent some great time in prayer and Bible study.

I long to get back to my work, and I know we all do. Thank God for how He has the whole world in His hands.

“Take Me Home” Pandemic Song

(I do not mean any disrespect toward anyone who is sick with the Covid-19 virus. It is just that, since I recorded “Country Roads” recently, the song was on my mind the other day as I thought about how much life had changed. Last month I left Nashville and am here in the area of the Smoky Mountains at my mother’s house during this time of shut-down in TN, so she does not have to get out.  I want to help her stay well and get groceries for her. That being said, all of the preventative rules are enough to drive a healthy person crazy! I woke up and began writing this and had a good laugh).

Almost heaven, faces covered,
And we are all afraid of each other
Life is old here pollen’s on the trees
Birds are singing, and we’re all afraid to sneeze

Take me home country roads to the place I belong
Before I had to wear a face mask
And saying Hello was not a hard task

People couped up filled with boredom
Some are skyping singing for them
Will we lose our minds inside so long
Trusting the experts, but what if Dr. Fouci’s wrong

Take me home, country roads,
To the place I belong,
When getting groceries used to be easy
And life was not measured by someone sneezing

I hear her voice in the mornin’ hours she calls me
The TV reminds me of the virus 24/7 and driving down the road I get the feeling that I think I coughed yesterday yesterday

Take me home country roads to the place I belong
West VA Mountain Mama
Take me Home Country Roads
