written for my baby niece Lila, while riding in Georgia

lyrics

What we gonna do with this new-born child,
What we gonna do with this child?

Hold her in our Arms so she'll always feel Safe,
Hold her in our Arms night and day

Take her to the Mountain so she can breathe that Air,
Take her to the Mountain way up there

What we gonna do with this new-born child,
What we gonna do with this child?

Take her to the Forest and lay her in the Leaves
Let her crawl around between the Trees

Take her to the Ocean so she can taste the Sea,
Take her to the Ocean to be free

What we gonna do with this new-born child,
What we gonna do with this child?

Feed her on the Soil of the the Garden and the Farm
Raise her up to never do no harm

Feed her on the Breast of the Mother who gave her birth
Nothing but the Best from this Earth

What we gonna do with this new-born child,
What we gonna do with this child?

Set her on a Horse so she will learn to Ride
Help her find the Strength that's inside

Sing her Lullabies and Songs of Grateful Hope
Raise her up so Joy is all she knows

What we gonna do with this new-born child,
What we gonna do with this child?
