Words And Music By Cheryl Wheeler

In Sandgates is a farm that had been a tobacco farm, but now they grow soybeans. It has been in Cheryl's step mother's family for generations. Cheryl wrote this song for one of her stepmom's birthdays. .

This is the first part of the lyrics:

"Down in St. Mary's county, headed south from Baltimore,
Follow the Patuxent river down along the western shore.
There among the fertile lowlands, there among the Amish farms,
Take the dirt road through the fields and past the old tobacco barns.

"Out on the porch, we listen to the lovely sound
Of the dogs and the children swimmin' and runnin' around."
