“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

‘Happiness No Man Required’ this Valentine’s Day for anyone looking for love

Don’t forget my book if you would like to give someone a special Valentine’s Day gift, including yourself! For anyone feeling lonely, my book will be an encouraging read. It is not against true love, good men, family or the joy of falling in love. It’s just that looking to someone else to give you the confidence that you must first find from within won’t work. That is really not what true love is about.

It is available on Amazon, Barnes and Noble and Walmart. Also, you can shop for my nonprofit on Amazon by shopping on Amazon Smile. Here is a banner Amazon sent me in celebration of Valentine’s Day and gifts on Amazon.

Shop at smile.amazon.com and AmazonSmile donates to Lighting the Way International at no cost to you!

Busy Singing and Signing Copies of my latest CD in the Smokies

Here I am with a long time friend of mine and my family’s , Hollie Miller, whom I had not seen in years. He was the pastor of Sevier Heights Bapt. in Knoxville before retiring, and he spoke last Saturday after I sang at First Baptist Dandridge at a Gala. We all had such a great time! I sang and spoke again at a church last Sunday in Knoxville.

This week I will be selling and signing copies of my latest CD of new renditions of bluegrass standards around the artistic and tourist Glades community of the Smoky Mountains. That music not only came from my heart but is the heart of this whole region. I am thankful to also have it in stores in and around the resort town of Gatlinburg.

I will also be sharing my tips for women from my book for women on happiness at a Christian based rehab facility in Knoxville, as the women there are in the process of healing from abuse.

It will be a non-stop week here in the Smokies, where my memories of these mountains and the people here are the roots of who I am.
