Up North


Lyrics

"Up North"
Music & Lyrics by Scott Cooley.

Up North, it’s a state of mind

It’s where we go to relax and unwind

Up North, it’s the place to be

There’s a lake and a beach and a cool cool breeze

When you’re too caught up in the everyday grind

Up North, it’s a state of mind


Up North, it’s a state of mind

You take 127 up to 75

Up North, from a car to a boat

It’s so much more than just a place to go

With four seasons, it’s gorgeous any time

Up North, it’s a state of mind


In the winter, with lake effect snow

No better place in the state to ski that I know

In the spring, there’s no one around

The rivers rush to make a beautiful sound

In the summer, there’s so much to do

You can’t do it all but you’ll have a ball tryin’ to

In the fall, through tunnels of trees

The most spectacular colors you’ll ever see


Up North, it’s a state of mind

It’s the greatest place that you’ll ever find

Up North, where you can chase your dream

Of a place to get away, to get a change in scene

Where the people are always friendly and kind

Up North, it’s a state of mind


In the winter, with lake effect snow

No better place in the state to ski that I know

In the spring, there’s no one around

The rivers rush to make a beautiful sound

In the summer, there’s so much to do

You can’t do it all but you’ll have a ball tryin’ to

In the fall, through tunnels of trees

The most spectacular colors you’ll ever see


Up North, it’s a state of mind

It’s the greatest place that you’ll ever find

Up North, where you can chase your dream

Of a place to get away, to get a change in scene

Where the people are always friendly and kind

Up North, it’s a state of mind

Brief Description

A happy folksy ditty of an acoustic song with light drums and percussion that celebrates the beautiful and more remote areas of northern Michigan, which could encompass the northern lower or entire upper peninsulas, and the things people from downstate urban areas go there to enjoy.
