From the album Songs of Rabble and Roots

I've lived in Connecticut my entire life. The world is a big and beautiful place, but it doesn't hold a candle to the beauty of this state, and the life long memories I have here. ~ Carolyn

Lyrics

Running rivers, raging seas, rolling mountains, changing trees
Look around and see the beauty of the place we call home
Hidden charters, sacred land where the Pequots took a stand
I will return here no matter where I roam

Cruisin’ through the hills of Connecticut
I’ve marked my life by the changing of its seasons
Each one brings back memories
The winter wind, a summer breeze
This Nutmeg state has a splendor all its own


Tubing on a river ride
Good friends by my side
Summer days we wished would never end
Falling leaves when Autumns here
White Christmases we hold so dear
As the snow melts we see life begin again

Rolling rivers, raging seas, the scent of salt air on the breeze
I Look around and see the beauty of this state I call my own
From the Berkshires to the Sound, so many memories gather round me
And take me back, no matter where I roam

Cruisin’ through the hills of Connecticut
I’ve marked my life by the changing of its seasons
Each one brings back memories
The winter wind, a summer breeze
This Nutmeg state has a splendor all its own
My heart is here in Connecticut my home
