Inspired while relaxing on my front porch playing guitar reflecting on my own happy neighborhood. The song starts in the local neighborhood and expands into the global neighborhood. Laid back summer stroll tune with a peaceful vibe.


Newborn baby in my neighborhood
Celebration of new life
Rejoicing on the street
Gracing my neighborhood

Old man dies in my neighborhood
Buried next to his wife of 60 years
Served his country in his youth
Changed his life with unseen scars

In my neighborhood
You’ll find new beginnings
In my neighborhood
You’ll find peaceful endings

Single woman down the street
Been divorced for many, many years
She’s a survivor, she’s so strong
Trims her roses in the rain

In my neighborhood
There are no street signs
In my neighborhood
You can see and still be blind….all in my neighborhood

Black man mows his lawn
Tattooed teen playing her guitar
Two men next door are so in love….in my neighborhood

There are no wars in my neighborhood
No one being judged in my neighborhood
Justice thrives in my neighborhood
And Jesus’ name is good….in my neighborhood
