Oh, Featherock!

    Oh, Featherock!

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

    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

    Chorus:
    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"

    Repeat Chorus

    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

    Repeat Chorus

    Tag:
    Oh, Featherock! My sweet Featherock!
    An oasis in the middle of the Lone Star state
