Lyrics:

Brogan's Lane
Words and Music by Dan Johnson and Roger Tomhave
(Verse 1)
Marshall Mountain wears a mask in the morning
From the Shenandoah sending its mists.
Listen to the laugh of the tumbling water
As Gooney Creek stretches and twists.
Here in this home that we dreamed together
There's a joy I cannot name,
It's you and me sitting watching the rain,
On Renner Road, off Brogan's Lane.

(Verse 2)
All is quiet but the rain gently fallin'
Birds hunkered down in their beds.
Feel the green of leaves and grasses
Brighten by these watersheds.
In knowing glances we smile together
We will never be the same
It's you and me coming in from the rain,
On Renner Road, off Brogan's Lane.

(Verse 3)
Thunder rolls low through Browntown valley
From Hogback Mountain down Gimlet Ridge
The creek flows high past Gooney Manor
Running tight through the little town bridge
But up on this hill we stand high and dry
In this home of stone and frame
It's you and me feeling blessed that we came
On Renner Road, off Brogan's Lane.

(Instrumental)

(Verse 4)
Some choices in life don't come so easy
Some feel right like well-worn jeans.
Loving you is simply living
Easier each day it seems.
Bigger than the view from these front deck rockers
More complete than the plans we've laid
It's you and me singin' loves refrains
On Renner Road, off Brogan's Lane.
It's you and me singin' loves refrains
On Renner Road, off Brogan's Lane.
On Renner Road, off Brogan's Lane.
