Music Monday: Take Me Home, Country Roads by John Denver

Hey everyone!
It’s the last Monday of 2019! So I had to make this week’s song choice a really good one.

For this week’s Music Monday, I have chosen Take Me Home, Country Roads by John Denver.

Music Monday was created by Drew over on The Tattooed Book Geek.


Take Me Home, Country Roads by John Denver

Take Me Home, Country Roads is taken from John Denver‘s 1971 album, Poems, Prayers and Promises.

This is one of those songs that you just have to sing along to, and most people know the words. One of my favourite memories of my uncle Dave is of him singing this song to me when I was younger, and it is a memory I will treasure forever.


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 I belong
West Virginia, mountain mama
Take me home, country roads

All my memories gather ’round 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 mama
Take me home, country roads

I hear her voice, in the morning hour she calls me
The radio reminds me of my home far away
Driving down the road, I get a feeling
That I should have been home yesterday, yesterday

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

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

Take me home, down country roads
Take me home, down country roads
