Story

 

Get Outside! is my flagship song and the story of my life. A song for outdoor adventurers of any stripe. As a kid and like a dog, all I ever wanted to do was be outside doing something, anything with some adventure to it. In a way my mom was probably responsible for this title because with a house full of kids she would yell Get Outside! After doing all the typical main stream sports and a few summers of fly fishing and hang gliding, I settled into whitewater rafting and kayaking as a career. Now, 40 years later, it's all history and I'm so glad I chose to invite the outdoors into my time this way. Not only is it beautiful, it's about as much fun as you can have with your pants on ;-)

Lyrics

Get Outside!  Casey Garland

You got stress and life’s a mess

Feel like you’re swimming upstream

Times are tough and it’s enough

To make you scream

 

Other people making your choices

Feel like you’re losing control

All the doors are closed, and life just blows

Are you ready for a change of scene?

 

 

I’ll take you to the river

Yes, I’ll take you for a ride

I’ll take you to the river

See the light shine in your eyes

 

 

Never lose your sense of adventure

All ways let your spirit fly

Have some fun and get outside

 

 

Spending plenty and feeling empty

Affluenza got you on the run?

Tied up in knots, seems you forgot

How to have some fun

 

You can’t sit still for moment

You get bored so easily

There’s so much more

Let go of the shore

and head downstream

 

 

Carried along by the current

Trees swaying in the breeze

Floating sure beats swimming

up against the stream

 

Laughing and you’re feeling good

That smile looks good on you

Next time the blues come calling

You’ll remember what to do

 

Always chose it, don’t lose it

You never know what you will find

There’s so much more when you

Get outdoors and

Discover peace of mind

 

 

Never lose your sense of adventure

All ways let your spirit fly

Have some fun and get out, yes

Take someone and Lord work it out

Have some fun and get outside.
