Me First And The Gimme Gimmes – Country Roads lyrics
Almost heaven, West Virginia
Blue Ridge Mountains, Shenandoah River
Life is old there, older than the trees
Younger than the mountains, growing like a breeze

Country roads, take me home
To the place where I belong
West Virginia, mountain momma
Take me home, country roads

All my memories gathered 'round her
Miner's lady stranger to blue water
Dark and dusty painted on the sky
Misty taste of moonshine, teardrop in my eye


I hear her voice in the morning hour she calls me
Radio reminds me of my home far away
Driving on the road I get a feeling that I
should have been home yesterday, yesterday


Take me home, country roads
Take me home, yeah country roads
Take me home
Country roads, yeah

Yeah! Yeah! Yeah! Yeah! Whoo!
