I have so much to say about this song.  Whenever I'm singing it, it brings me back to a universal truth: the place that I need to be is here.  This simple song that I wrote driving down the mountain to my first ever songwriter in the round experience has been more influential on my life than any other song I've written.  It appeared on a Putumayo World Music album in 2007 on a disc with Old Crow Medicine Show, The Little Willies, Ruthie Foster, Tim O'Brien, Allison Brown - it goes on and on!  What incredible company!  And my little song took me for quite a ride.  I will always be SO grateful to the folks at Putumayo!  It has been my favorite label since I was about 15 and it was incredible to have a track included.

Lyrics

Chorus:
Sing a new song
In the rain
Sing a new song
To the drops coming down
Sing a new song
Where you are
Sing a new song
Where the sky meets the ground
 
Verse:
I don’t always know what’s right
And sometimes not even what’s real
But there’s only one place to stand
And it starts with my toe and ends with my heel
 
Verse:
It may be a mystery
But somehow, things will come clear
For now what I know for sure
Is the place that I need to be is here
