John Denver – Country Roads lyrics

Almost heaven, West Virginia
Blue Ridge Mountains, Shenandoah River
Life is old there, older than the trees
Younger than the mountains, blowing like a breeze

Chorus:
Country roads, take me home
To the place I belong

West Virginia, Mountain Mama
Take me home, country roads

All my memories, gathered 'round her
Miners' Lady, stranger to blue water

Dark and dusty, painted on the sky
Misty taste of moonshine, teardrop in my eye


Chorus

I hear her voice, in the morning hour she calls me
The radio reminds me of my home far away

And drivin' down the road I get the feeling
That I should have been home yesterday, yesterday

Chorus x 2 (modulates)
