Trifolkal: Listen to the Music

Crossing Over into the Valley

(Trifolkal)

On the joy of coming home to the Shenandoah.
[Lyrics] I last crossed these mountains, head held high and sure
Reckless and ready to conquer the world
Got hung up in a neon haze, tangled in a black-top maze
What was clear began to fade, but now I'm comin' home

Crossing over into the valley
Shenandoah, you're my long lost friend
Blue Ridge rising up to greet me
Sweet sanctuary, welcome me in

Your tumbling waterfalls, murmuring streams
Dogwoods in springtime still bloom in my dreams
White-tailed deer and whippoorwills, miles of green and rolling fields
My heart hungers for the hills, now I'm coming home

Crossing over into the valley
Shenandoah, you're my long lost friend
Blue Ridge rising up to greet me
Sweet sanctuary, welcome me in

Wherever I wander, I know there'll always be a place for me
In your Appalachian arms

Crossing over into the valley
Shenandoah, you're my long lost friend
Blue Ridge rising up to greet me
Sweet sanctuary, welcome me in
