Let the Music Take You Home ©2009 Michael VanArsdale

Take the road to the river, you don't have to turn around
Turn your back to the city, put your feet to the ground
when you hear that whistle blow and you know it's time to go
when the mountains sing that lonesome song, just let the music take you home.

Look for an answer in your money, try to find meaning in her eyes.
Get them all to call you honey, try to be last one to die
If you hear that fiddle call, you to that Shenandoah Valley waltz
If the thrill is really gone, just let the music take you home,

Oh, get back to Georgia, Oh, take back your soul
Oh, sing it like you mean it, Oh, let music roll
Take that last train to the southland or just let the music take you Home.


from Dreaming Myself Awake, released September 23, 2013
with Sean Caffey on Steel Guitar, Mark Cheley on Bass and Rick Ward on Drums.
