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 blacktop maze
What was clear began to fade, but now I?m heading 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 whipporwills, miles of green and rolling fields
My heart hungers for the hills, now I?m heading home


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