A Country Song
(Dedicated to John Denver)
My life's just a country song,
hop on and ride along.
Ride the rails from dusk till dawn.
Life's just a country song.
Smell the morning new mown hay,
nothing sweeter to greet the day.
Out in the pasture the colt's at play,
chasing those filly blues away.
Hitching a ride by the thumb,
spanning the states with ease.
counting the clouds passing by,
imagining kingdoms in the breeze.
Guitar in hand the vagabond,
weaves his magic with a song.
Sings for his supper all night long,
good friends and a country song.
Mighty rivers flow to the sea,
upstream is where you'll find me.
Seeking to find the river's source,
singing its praises in my verse.
Mighty mountains touch the sky,
I'll be out where eagles fly.
Singing songs of long gone by.
Can you take me home?
In the moonlight she will be,
the only fire light that I see.
Singing songs to keep me home,
so no more will I roam.
We'll marry in the forest glen,
with all our friends gathered in.
I'll sing us songs of our story,
and the good life that has been.
We'll raise the kids to live free,
not much of them will we ask.
Except that they will still love us,
when our time has come to task.

|A lovely lyrical tribute to John Denver, Ron. Thank you for sharing it. I hope he is still singing wherever he is now in the infinity of time and the cosmos. Love and peace to you,

|That was a nice walk down the path of my memory toward a simpler time in life. I too miss his music.

|Yea, youve reminded me how I miss John's singing, he was a real country-folk songwriter without all that Nashville tinsel! A true wilderness-mountain poet in song. I'll have to stop by the music store and pick up a collection on CD again (all my old stuff like his is still on unused LPs) You write good poems for mainly a Novelist!|

|I, too had my problems with Denver, but one thing I could not deny, the man could sing his ass off . . . Very good poem, Ron . . .|

|I met this man in Texas. He was just as you saw him with no pretrnse and no holier than thou. He was a humble man who made everyone around him comfortable and in awe of his voice and heart. He was a private man but would offer aid to those who needed him. I had the impression then that his heart ached for someone far away and that he'd made her untouchable....even to him. In all the time I spent with him he will live on as a kind man with a special gift of spirit and to this day, I know he still lives among us.
