“The Grass Is Blue” (Tribute To Dolly)

Rivers flow backwards
wrote a beautiful soul
of how the grass is blue
and insanities bliss consoles.

Dear home of mine here
in the valley of the mountains
I grew true blue and flow
in southern fountains.

Blue grass is a tune I feel
at my core and my heel
has traveled miles here
and sometimes hurt is real.

Real is a feeling of bliss
of simple life things foster
feelings of comfort and love
come softer.

Here in the valley green
is a sun that shines yellow
is a man I call myself who
is an emotional fellow.

I hear her words now
and I am in such a sway.
I’m ready to cry a moment
as Dolly’s words they slay.

Of how a love ends
I heard sweet words sing
of how the truth is a lie and
how it is a beautiful thing.

Snow her tropics I can relate
to as I sit here callous blue.
But comfort can be found in
pretending the opposites true.

(This is a tribute to Dolly Parton and her phenomenal ability to express
beautifully an emotion so raw and real.
“The Grass Is Blue” is a song written and sung by Dolly of course. But, but. It was also done by Norah Jones and of course is amazing and I highly suggest checking it out. Thank you. Jared.)
