Country Roads Take Me Home - Lyrics

by 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 mem’ries, 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 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

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

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