Song Lyric Sunday: Country Roads-John Denver

Everyone has that one special place they call home. The reasons may vary, from family to childhood memories. I love living in my hometown of Karachi and could never dream of settling down elsewhere. Change, of course, can hit us in a flash but no matter where we go, home is where the heart is. So here’s a little bit of Country Roads to get all those memories flooding back!

Singer: John Denver
Lyrics: genius.com
Almost heaven, West Virginia
Blue ridge mountain, Shenandoah river
Life is old there, older than the trees
Younger than the mountains, blowing like a breeze

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

All my memories, gather round her
Miners’ 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 mamma
Take me home, to the country roads

I hear her voice in the morning hour she calls me
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 mamma
Take me home, country roads

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

Take me home, that country road
Take me home, that country road
