  • 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 mama
    Take me home, country roads

    All my memories, they gather round her (If I should stay)
    A miner's lady, stranger to blue water (I would only be in your way)
    So I'll go, yet I know (dark and dusty, painted on the sky)
    I'll think of you every step of the way (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

    On the road again
    Like a band of gypsies, we go down the highway
    We're the best of friends
    Insisting that the world keep turning our way
    And our way

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

    Oh, I hope life treats you kind
    And I hope you have all you've dreamed of
    I wish you joy and happiness
    But above all this, I wish you love

    And I will always love you
    I will always love you
    Country roads
    Take me home, country roads (and I will always love you)
    On the road again (I will always love you)
    I just can't wait to get on the road again
    Country roads
    The life I love is makin' music with my friends (I will always love you
    I can't wait to get on the road again
    Take me home, country roads
    I will always love you
    I'll always love you Writer/s: BILL DANOFF, TAFFY NIVERT, JOHN DENVER, WILLIE NELSON, DOLLY PARTON
