From the recording Touch The Earth

In cart Not available Out of stock

I have recorded this song many times and it was originally released on a CD that benefited the Rainforest Action Network by Ben and Jerry's Ice Cream that included songs by Jerry Garcia and Paul Winter. This version is my favorite and features swirling kalimbas in the choruses, electric violin and lots of percussion.

Lyrics

Touch The Earth
 
Touch the earth while you can
Touch the earth where you stand
 
Find your place in this creation
It's a source of inspiration
Look beyond your own reflection
Into nature's true perfection
 
Chorus
 
Don't abuse the gift of power
Looking down from your ivory tower
In this life you're no outsider
So give thanks to the great provider
 
Chorus
 
The bird flies from tree to tree
But even she eventually must touch the earth, touch the earth
 
Instrumental break
 
Plant a seed of understanding
In a universe expanding
Not to lose this home we're building
Having been ungrateful children
