BLUE TRAIL is recognized as the pre-eminent home timey band - a style that defies yet embraces the conventional constraints of country, folk, bluegrass, gospel, blues and rock music and leaves the listener with an uncomfortable tiring in the foot and toe region

Biography

welcome to the blue trail ... where friendship, life, and music have somehow come together ... never in a million years could we have imagined such a place existed ... but through faith, love, trust, and a little practice it has ... a place we can walk together each day ... a place we can share our hopes and dreams, our fears and disappointments ... a place we will learn together and grow together ... join us on the blue trail

Lyrics

keep on growin'

Written By: dale long

Take a look around, tell me what you see, is there something you really want to be

It’s all there for you, just take your time and dream, each day begins a new journey it will seem

Keep on growing, keep on growing

The world’s just as big as it needs to be, to show you what it is and all there is to see

Love all around, friends you get to know, open up your heart, everything will flow

Keep on growing, keep on growing

Beyond where you are now, there’s a path your gonna take

And further up that road, another choice you’ll make

Wherever you may be, whatever you might do, fill your life with love, let it guide you

Keep on growing, keep on growing

Take a look around, tell me what you see, is there something you really want to be

Keep on growing, reaching for the stars, keep on growing, knowing who you are

Keep on growing, reaching to the top, keep on growing, never gonna stop

Keep on growing, keep on growing,,,,

gotta be yourself

The sun rises each day, creation has made it that way, I’m so hungry they say

Mama’s on the couch, daddy’s on the couch, it’s time to start a new day

So take your bubbles and blow, like the stream let it flow, follow your dreams you know

It happens so fast you wanna make it last so take your time and grow

Like the shining sun my love, you’re bright as the stars above

There’s no other love that compares with the love I feel for you

Let love be your guide, I’m always on your side, let love be your guide, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

Let love be your guide, I’m always on your side, let love be your guide, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

Some day you’ll find who you’ll be, it’s all in the plan you see, I guess it’s not up to me,

Mama’s on the couch, daddy’s on the couch, you gotta be yourself and be and free, yeah

road of tears

Written By: dale long

Driving down this country road I was thinking back through all the years
Wondering how it was we carried the load down this lonely road of tears

You were there when the rain came down and always when the storm was near
This time we’re leaving we’re homeward bound down this lonely road of tears

It’s never where you think it is not as far as you would know
It’s always where it never is and everywhere love grows

So now we know since it’s been some time it’s a fine line between hope and fear
We’re just as lucky that its love we find down this lonely road of tears
