This Place I Call Home



                                                When I look around me each day I see
                                                 beautiful mountains of quiet serenity

                                                My whole life I've never known
                                                a place of beauty quite so strong

                                                Days of my youth are planted here
                                                in days of old they are even more dear
            
                                                Why should I long for other lands
                                                when I have the world in my hands
  
                                                Why should I look for other skies
                                                 when the most beauty in this life
                                                         is before my eyes

                                                Why should I care to ever roam
                                                 these mountains are a part of me
                                                       This Place I Call Home
