LOVER’S LEDGE
By Emily Higgins

Put on your warmest winter clothes
This time of year the north wind blows
Then come with me, walk down the road
I've got a place for us to go
We'll find the trail that's high and steep
Where the waters below are cold and deep

Better watch your step, grab the trees
Push and pull, and bend your knees
There's frost on the leaves, we'll slip and slide
If you tumble down, it's a pretty rough ride
So have a little patience, take your time
We'll make it a slow and steady climb

CHORUS:
Climb on up to Lover's Ledge
We'll dangle our feet right off the edge
And see the creek sparklin' down below
We'll be way up higher than the tall trees grow
Then we'll make a promise, take a pledge
To come back up to Lover's Ledge

There's wind in the trees, wind in your hair
It's a birds-eye view from way up there
You can see Wolf Hollow and the rolling hills
Watch the hawks, hear the whippoorwills
I think you'll find it worth the time
To make the slow and steady climb

REPEAT CHORUS:
Climb on up to Lover's Ledge
We'll dangle our feet right off the edge
And see the creek sparklin' down below
We'll be way up higher than the tall trees grow
Then we'll make a promise, take a pledge
To come back up to Lover's Ledge
