Lady of the Valley

©1995 Sandra L. Reay

Colorado Sandstorm Music,B.M.I.

chorus She holds me, my Lady of the Valley
  She holds even though I always roam
  Still she holds me, my Lady of the Valley
  In the dying days of summer, my lady calls me home
I was free like a petal on the water
  I was free like a feather on the wind
  I was free till I came to Walnut Valley
  Where my lady touched my heart and gently took me in
You can say I'm a dreamer and a drifter
  You can say that my pathways are my own
  You can say that I go which way the wind blows
  Before the leaves turn golden I find I'm heading home
bridge Sometimes I drift away out west
  Leave the lady and the valley behind
  But I smell wood smoke in the wind
  And hear a lonesome sound that brings her memory back to mind


In the dying days of summer, my lady calls me home
  She holds me
Lady of the Valley

"I wrote about the Walnut Valley Bluegrass Festival which is in Winfield, Kansas, the third weekend in September. Years later, I used the line, 'In the dying days of summer ... home' in the chorus of Bring 'Em Home."



  • A quote from Lady of the Valley was included in "Peace Within" by Kebba Buckley Button
