Lyrics

Higher Ground
Dale Ann Bradley (Dale Ann Bradley Music, BMI)

Verse 1
I was born in the heart of an East Kentucky mountain
Raised in the shadow of the pines
Washed by the waters that flowed down like a fountain
Believing those hills to be my life
But my dreams grew larger than those hollers could hold
Fighting fear, I steeled my will
I’ve travelled so far as my story unfolds
But my heart remains there still

Chorus
Other places I have seen, have taught me many things
Some of them I’ve tried to call my home
No matter where I dwell, I come back to the well
As higher ground my mountain stands alone
As higher ground my mountain stands alone

Verse 2
Now I live in shadows not of green but of gray
These towers like a concrete mountain stand
I’ve found work and friends and joy all along my way
Even found a love that I hadn’t planned
Sometimes in the night when the city quiets down
I strain to hear a wind through the trees
To take me back in time to the place I carry ‘round
The home always with me

Chorus
Other places I have seen, have taught me many things
Some of them I’ve tried to call my home
No matter where I dwell, I come back to the well
As higher ground my mountain stands alone
As higher ground my mountain stands alone
