Two Little Feet

by Greg Brown

Further In album cover

two little feet to get me 'cross the mountain
two little feet to carry me away into the woods
. . .

John Muir walked away into the mountains
in his old overcoat a crust of bread in his pocket

This song is available on Greg Brown's 1996 album, Further In.

  • Lyrics by Greg Brown (off-site link)
