From Mary Alice Amidon: "This is a song I wrote and performed at family gathering at Pinewoods Family Week last summer (2014). The tune is by Pete Sutherland as are the chorus lyrics. I wrote the lyrics of the verses and substituted the word "Pinewoods" in the chorus of his song Bird's Eye View which was written about Swanton, Vt."

Pete has done wonderful songwriting with school children and gave me permission to present and share this song about the place and week I love so well."
