Country Roads lyrics

TAKE ME HOME, COUNTRY ROADS LYRICS: Now I know what you're thinking.
Why is an American country anthem included on this list of best Oktoberfest songs?
Maybe because the world just can't get enough of it.

John Denver and buddies Taffy Nivert, and Bill Danoff wrote the song in 1970 and Denver turned it into his signature tune. Though the song never reached No. in the United States it's become one of the most enduring melodies of the twentieth century.

The lyrics and catchy, touching and very sing-along-able, just what you want to hear when you're swaying on the benches inside a huge beer tent at the Munich Oktoberfest. Take Me Home, Country Roads was even used by NASA to wake up Space Shuttle astronauts on the last day of their mission.

It's played several times a day in each of the Munich Oktoberfest tents, and always in English.



Lyrics to Take Me Home, Country Roads

Almost heaven, West Virginia
Blue ridge mountains
Shenandoah river -
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 momma
Take me home, country roads

All my memories gathered 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 momma
Take me home, country roads

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

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

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