John Denver: Take Me Home, Country Roads Meaning

Song Released: 1971

Take Me Home, Country Roads Lyrics

Almost heaven, West Virginia

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...
