A little postcard song of Door County, one of Wisconsin’s lovely vacationlands

Would love to have someone put this to music!

Lyrics

Door County, WI

V1
from Jacksonport to Gill’s Rock
Egg Habor to Rowley’s Bay
cedars, hemlocks, pines, and birch
line roads that guide the way

from Lake Michigan sand beaches
to limestone cliffs along Green Bay
one can hike, swim, boat, bike, fish,
or kayak the day away

C
at summers in Door County
some lounge at pristine shores
some hike in shady woods
some shop in little stores

at summers in Door County
some float in clear blue lakes
some camp in small pup tents
and some picnic by the bay

V2
from cherry orchards to state parks
farmer’s markets to fisheries
there’s salmon, trout, bass, white fish
and perch (and cherry pie!) at every eatery

from antiques to outdoor theaters
vineyards to breweries
there’s music, fine art, crafts,
and kitsch at shops and galleries

C
at summers in Door County
some lounge at pristine shores
some hike in shady woods
some shop in little stores

at summers in Door County
some float in clear blue lakes
some camp in small pup tents
and some picnic by the bay

B
and me? well..
I’m napping in my hammock
or walking through red pines
or snorkeling in the shallows
or sipping cherry wine
or sitting by a fire
or casting a line
or strumming my guitar
and feeling so fine

C
at summers in Door County
some lounge at pristine shores
some hike in shady woods
some shop in little stores

at summers in Door County
some float in clear blue lakes
some camp in small pup tents
and some picnic by the bay

Reading this from Northern Wisconsin right now where I'm enjoying some Door County cherries in a Belgian Red from New Glarus. Definitely in my happy place with that and reading through my friend's lyrics puts me in an even more happy place!

Such evocative lyrics of the natural beauty that's so pervasive here. Turn around, boom, lakes and old trees. Look over there, and you'll see wild deer frolicking, and in the distance some hills for hiking. I definitely hear an upbeat strummer in this. If you don't have a collaborator in a few weeks, let's talk! But I have to imagine someone else will see this and get inspired by it as well.
