“Back to Morning” In this town where I grew up You can watch the sunrise from the roof of any home We were all children here in a simpler time and I don’t want to let it go I remember when our busiest streets brought business downtown But you’ll still get smiles on the highway From the people you meet if you can spare the time to slow down TIME MOVES SLOWER IN THIS PLACE BUT ENDS WITHOUT A WARNING IF LIFE IS REALLY JUST A DAY TAKE ME BACK TO MORNING From the earliest daylight when we open our eyes, We’re princes of our youth We have forever ahead and a big world outside to do whatever we want to do The future is bright if we make the most of every new sunrise
“Yesterday’s Voices” There’s a make-believe world beneath the city skyline Fake tans, traffic jams, I’m leaving it all behind I want to stand on the familiar ground Where all my memories were grown Rows of wheat against the setting sun, That’s the skyline that I know YESTERDAY'S VOICES CALL OUT FOR TOMORROW: "IS ANYBODY OUT THERE, IS ANYONE LISTENING?" SO MANY CHOICES WHICH WAY WILL I GO? BUT I'M READY TO ANSWER AND CARRY THE WISDOM “Will you take care of what we started?” It’s a call I can’t ignore It’s the whisper in the breeze of those who came before Here where the steps of children fill the steps of their fathers I’m gonna plant my own Here where the young hearts fill the hearts of their mothers I’m gonna fill my own


These songs about living in a small town were commissioned by the Rural Futures Institute.
