DOUGLAS COUNTY
By Emily Higgins

There’s a wonder in these woods
I’d bottle it if I could
And take it with me everywhere I go
So I could think of times like these
When I’m standing in the leaves
On this piece of Douglas County I call home

With the passing of each year
Things change a bit around here
Another row of stones upon the wall
It’s all a part of me
I hear the melody
Of the owl and the coyote call

CHORUS:
Come walk through my woods
Sit down by the creek
Feel the peace down in your bones
This place for which I’ve cared
Is better when it’s shared
Douglas County….my home

I never minded the sweat
And I never will forget
Each minute, hour, and every single day
That I spent working on this farm
Raising this barn
That I dream of when I’m sometimes far away

CHORUS:
So come walk through my woods
Sit down by the creek
Feel the peace down in your bones
This place for which I’ve cared
Is better when it’s shared
Douglas County…my home
Douglas County…you are my home
