My daddy said his time is near the end
With Momma gone there's just one thing to do
So every mornin' we set out from home
Ruffles, knots, satchels, and good boots

He says, "Darlin', its time you learned to live
From the bounty of the land,
By the strength of your own hand.
There's nothin' the forest doesn't give
If you listen with your heart,
If you listen with your heart,
If you listen with your heart,
You'll hear the rhythm of the land.

Like a newborn faun at first I was afraid
The sparrows' song gave me a start
Slowly I learned each creatures melody
Dad said I learned to listen with my heart

He says, "Darlin', you're learnin to live
From the bounty of the land,
By the strength of your own hand.
There's nothin' the forest doesn't give
If you listen with your heart,
If you listen with your heart,
If you listen with your heart,
You'll hear the rhythm of the land.

As I gather amps and dandelion greens
Pluck a few wild flowers for his grave
Check my traps and lines in the stream
Hear my Daddy singin' out his praise

He says, "Darlin', you have leared to live
From the bounty of the land,
By the strength of your own hand.
There's nothing the forest doesn't give
If you listen with your heart x6
When you listen with your heart
You are the rhythm of the land.
