21 John Denver Lyrics that are Everything Right Now

On October 12, 1997, country music star John Denver died in a plane crash.  The voice behind such popular songs as “Take Me Home, Country Road”, “Rocky Mountain High”, and “Thank God I’m a Country Boy” was one of the most popular acoustic artists of the 1970’s and was America’s best-selling performer of the time.

Throughout his short life, he recorded and released approximately 300 songs, about 200 of which he wrote and composed himself.  His songs often had to do with country life out west and the beauty of nature.

The poetic lyrics of his songs paint a beautiful picture of life in “God’s Country”, and while it may seem hard to find good things on TV or in the news, you can have fun sinking into these 21 beautiful, inspiring, and thoughtful lyrics from some of John Denver’s best songs.

You know it makes me smile.
And it pleases me to have you here
For just a little while.

There’s nothin’ behind me and nothin’ that ties me to
Something that might have been true yesterday.
Tomorrow is open, right now it seems to be more than enough
To just be here today.

To sail on a dream on a crystal clear ocean
To ride on the crest of wild raging storm
To work in the service of life and living
In search of the answers to the questions unknown.

Perhaps love is like a window
Perhaps an open door
It invites you to come closer
It wants to show you more
And even if you lose yourself
And don’t know what to do
The memory of love will see you through.

feather

Lying by your side, the greatest peace I’ve ever known.

It’s the little things that make a house a home
Like a fire softly burning and supper on the stove
The light in your eyes that makes me warm.

Though I seem a half a million miles from you,
You are in my heart and living there.

In my mind saying, ‘It’s gonna be alright.'”

Cause I can’t seem to do it on my own.
In the morning there is hours and infinity
The starlit evening’s come to take me home.”
