John Denver: Take Me Home, Country Roads Meaning

Song Released: 1971

Take Me Home, Country Roads Lyrics

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...

    i think this song has something to do with him having left wet Virginia and wanting to come back. hence "I hear her voice in the mornin' hour, she calls me
    The radio reminds me of my home far away
    Drivin' down the road, I get a feelin'
    That I should've been home yesterday, yesterday" or "Country roads, take me home
    To the place I belong"

    I've always wondered if "mountain mamma" refers to a person or to the concept that the mountains are the momma of West Virginians. Being a West Virginian myself, I've always thought of it as the mountains being the momma of us all.

    I think it's where he wants to be laid to rest.
