~ EARTH DAY EVERY DAY!

 

 

WALK WITH ME

   Walk with me, walk with me, my brothers walk with me

  Walk with me, walk with me, and tell me what you see

Feel the goodness in the sunshine

And in the earth beneath your feet

 

 

And walk with me, walk with me, my sisters walk with me

Walk with me,walk with me, and tell me what you see

Taste the pureness in the water, and in the precious air you breath

And walk with me

 

Share with me the sound of music

In the shade beneath the trees

And all the beauty, and all the wonders

All designed so perfectly

 

Walk with me, walk with me, take the time and walk with me

Walk with me, walk with me, and tell me what you see

Find the joy in life around you, for it's a precious gift indeed

 

And walk with me, walk with me, walk with me

Walk with me

Cherish all of God's creation, from the mountains to the sea

For it's been placed here lovingly

 

And walk with me, walk with me, walk with me

Walk with me, walk with me, walk with me, walk with me

Walk with me

 

Words & Music by Okefenokee Joe

 

     Before I began my life in the Okefenokee Swamp, I had been all over the world several times.  I had seen the countries of Europe, the oriental lands of the Far East, and I had traveled the entire United States many a time.  I thought I had done a lot, I thought I knew a lot, and seen a lot.  As the saying goes, “You ain't seen nothin' yet”,  I realized I hadn't!

     In the Okefenokee Swamp the air itself was always filled with the faint, clean, fresh and healthy odor of pine needles.  At different times of the year it would be mixed with the welcome smell of sweet blossoming wild flowers of all kinds.  I call it, “The smells of freedom”.  And the sights and scenes I was being treated to, especially with the wild animals, were well beyond fantastic!  I had loved animals all my life.  And now here I was caring for bears, bobcats, alligators, snakes, you name it!  Not only caring for them, but seeing them every day up close and personal, as the saying goes!

      Because the swampland is low and flat, every day the sunrise and the sunset could be enjoyed a little bit longer than elsewhere.  The steps to my front porch faced to the south, and was wide open on both sides.  I could sit on those steps, and watch and enjoy the sunrise in the east, and the sunset in the west any day I chose to do so.  And I did that often.

     Living close to the earth as I was, gives a person vibes that cannot be felt anywhere else that I have ever known.  It was giving me a deep desire to know more about all the life around me.  And day after day, night after night that is what I was almost hypnotically drawn to do!  And I loved it!

     In my book “Swampwise” there is a whole chapter about a beautiful bobcat I raised from a kitten.  His name was Streak!  Every day, twice a day, and without a leash I would take that bobcat on a walk about with me, out in the wilderness of Cowhouse Island.  I sometimes found myself wishing that the whole civilized world could see, hear, and appreciate the beauty, the wonders, and the teeming life I was seeing all around me.  Things that I had been taking for granted all my life, until the day I had begun my life over again in the Okefenokee Swamp!

     I wrote this song because deep in my heart I would love to see the whole civilized world become not only interested in, and fascinated by, but appreciative as well, of the wonders of God's creation in the natural world around us!

     I would love to take the whole world on a “Walk With  Me!”
