Silver Ridge

A young man living off the grid in a place called Silver Ridge

He’s an outdoors man & survivalist

On his front door there’s a “no trespassing” sign,

Custom made real fine, shellacked til it shined

he’s had it a long time, It’s carved from the remains

of a chopped down Georgia Pine,

He lives off the land like his granddaddy did

Family tradition,

He’s not alone, he’s got a wife & kids

To some he’s strange, but not to them

Their way of life is just how it’s always been

They wouldn’t trade it in,

they love the freedom of it
