Florida Folk Festival Video


One of my favorite times of the year, and one I missed  out on for a while.

AT THE FESTIVAL

Put new strings on our guitars,
Stock up on juice and granola bars,
We'll spend all night playing under the stars –
Going to the festival!
Get a program, flip the pages,
See who's playing at which stages;
Hey, I haven't seen this one in ages,
At the festival!

It's the Florida Folk Festival
We'll take three days and fill 'em full
Of friends and fun and song –
Y'all come along!

The sun is high, gonna get damp
When we make that long hot tramp
From the Old Marble Stage to the Seminole camp,
Taking in the festival!
We don't mind, we're having a ball
And we can stop by the lemonade stall
On our way to see it all
At the festival!

It's the Florida Folk Festival
We'll take three days and fill 'em full
Of friends and fun and song –
Y'all come along!

'Round the campfires, after dark,
Songs are risin' with the sparks;
We're at the Stephen Foster park
For the festival!
A smile for everyone who attends,
Strangers now but before it ends
We're all gonna be old friends
At the festival!
