Almost heaven

Herewith a tribute to one of America's most rural and most beautiful states:

West VirginiaNew River Gorge Bridge
State Capitol, Charleston, W. Va.
John Denver, Country Roads
Almost heaven, West Virginia
Blue Ridge Mountains
Shenandoah River —
Life is old there
Older than the trees
Younger than the mountains
Growing 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 gather round her
Miners' lady, stranger to blue water
Dark and dusty, painted on the sky
Misty taste of moonshine
Teardrops in my eye

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

I hear her voice
In the morning hour she calls me
The radio reminds me of my home far away
And driving down the road I get a feeling
That I should have been home yesterday, yesterday

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

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