Country Roads

Country Roads - John Denver

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

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

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

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

I hear her voice, in the mornin’ hours she calls me 
The radio reminds me of my home far away 
And drivin’ down the road 
I get a feelin’ that I should have been home yesterday, yesterday
