Honeydew Valley

Words and music by Robbie Smith

I can see you need cheering, you’re feeling so bad
You’re afraid of the world outside you
But we’ve captured our freedom, you shouldn’t be sad
For we’re going to Honeydew Valley

There’s no need in dreading the future to be
The spring will be warmer than winter
Once we were orphans but now we are free
Like the geese over Honeydew Valley

We’ve tasted your honey
We’ve heard of your orchards and streams
And the sweet banjo music
That drifts in the seas of our dreams

Oh, I’m happy to see a smile crossing your face
The boarding school life is behind us
There’s a storm cloud obscuring that cold, lonely place
And a rainbow in Honeydew Valley
