This song appears on two albums, and was first released on the Rocky Mountain High album, and has also been released on the An Evening With John Denver album as a live version.

Born a poor young country boy
Mother Nature’s Son
All day long I’m sitting singing songs for everyone

Sit beside a mountain stream
See her waters rise
Listen to the sound of pretty music as she flies

Find me in my field of grass
Mother nature’s son
Swaying Daisies sing a lazy song beneath the sun

Words and music by John Lennon and Paul McCartney
