A Song For All Lovers – John Denver

I see them dancing, somewhere in the moonlight
Somewhere in Alaska, somewhere in the sun
I hear them singing, a song for all lovers
A song for the two hearts beating only as one

Imagine the morning, no longer alone
The arms of another, a place to belong
No longer the struggle, no longer the night
And ever becoming in the quickening light

To see in the darkness, to listen within
To answer in kindness, to ever begin
To ever be gentle, to always be strong
To walk in the wonder, to live in the song

In a place of enchantment, where the wild things are known
Will the future remember when the lovers are gone?


(Instrumental)

To ever be gentle, to always be strong
To walk in the wonder, to live in the song

I see them dancing, somewhere in the moonlight
Somewhere in Alaska, somewhere in the sun
I hear them singing, a song for all lovers
A song for the two hearts beating only as one
A song for the two hearts beating only as one

A Little Further North – John Denver

The sun sinks behind me in the west
This is the time of day I love best
Salt breezes murmur through the coconut palms
As the colors change, you set a scene of tropic calm

Seagulls headed back to land
Over the mangrove and the salt pan
By a lazy creek with a six pack and a fishin’ line
Win back some memories and losin’ track of time

I head a little further north each year
Leave the cities behind, out of sight out of mind
Oh, up where my troubles can all disappear
I head a little further north each year

Feeling the night wrap around me
Eases my mind’s serenity
Ocean waves are hummin’ on the outer reef
These balmy days and sultry nights are a welcome relief

I head a little further north each year
Leave the cities behind, out of sight out of mind
Oh, up where my troubles can all disappear
I head a little further north each year

I head a little further north each year
Taking my mind to an easier time
Oh, up where there’s silence and the night sky is clear
I head a little further north each year

Take Me To Tomorrow – John Denver

Hey ev’rybody, tell me how do you feel?

Are you satisfied with your life, do you think it’s real?
Tell me how is your head, what are your dreams?
Do you have any plans, do you have any scheme?
Do you care about, about anybody?
I’d like to know, is the answer “no”?

Take me to tomorrow, take me there today
I’ve had my fill of sorrow and livin’ this way
Take me to tomorrow, that’s where I’d like to be
the day after tomorrow is waitin’ for me

Hey ev’rybody, what’s on your mind?

Do you think there’s nowhere else to go, there’s nothing left to find?
Are you happy where you are, do you have anything to share?
Do you think you’re gonna waste your life spending it there?
Would you like to find a way out, do you think it’s worth a try?
I’d like to know, is the answer “no”?


Take me to tomorrow, take me there today
I’ve had my fill of sorrow and livin’ this way
Take me to tomorrow, that’s where I’d like to be
the day after tomorrow is waitin’
the day after tomorrow is waitin’
the day after tomorrow is waitin’ for me

San Antonio Rose – John Denver

Deep within my heart lies a melody
A song of old San Antone
Where in dreams I live with a memory
Beneath the stars all alone

It was there I found beside the Alamo
Enchantment strange as the blue up above
A moonlit pass that only she would know
Still hears my broken song of love


Moon in all your splendor hear only my heart
Call back my Rose, Rose of San Antone
Lips so sweet and tender like petals falling apart
Speak once again of my love, my own

Broken song, empty words I know
Still live in my heart all alone
For the moonlit pass by the Alamo
And Rose, my Rose of San Antone

Garden Song – John Denver

Inch by inch, row by row, gonna make this garden grow.
All it takes is a rake and a hoe and a piece of fertile ground
Inch by inch, row by row, Someone bless the seeds I sow.
Someone warm them from below, ’til the rain comes tumbling down.


Pulling weeds and pickin’ stones, man is made of dreams and bones,
Feel the need to grow my own. ’cause the time is close at hand
Grain for grain, sun and rain, find my way in nature’s chain,
To my body and my brain to the music from the land


Plant your rows straight and long, thicker than with pray’r and song
Mother Earth will make you strong if you give her love and care
Old crow watchin’ hungrily, from his perch in yonder tree
In my garden I’m as free as that feathered beak up there.


Inch by inch, row by row, gonna make this garden grow.
All it takes is a rake and a hoe and a piece of fertile ground
Inch by inch, row by row, Someone bless the seeds I sow.
Someone warm them from below, ’til the rain comes tumbling down.

John Denver – Earth Day, Every Day (Celebrate)

Celebrate morning,
The cry of a loon on a lake in the night
Dreams that are born in the dawn’s early light
Celebrate morning.

Celebrate living,
The laughter that sings in the heart of a child,
Freedom that flies to the call of the wild,
Celebrate living.

Celebrate evening,
The stars that appear in the loss of the sun,
Whispering winds, ‘We are one, we are one’…


Celebrate Earth Day, every day,
Celebrate Earth Day, every day
Celebrate land and sea
Celebrate you and me
Celebrate Earth Day, every day

John Denver – Eagles And Horses (I’m Flying Again)

Horses are cratures who worship the earth
My body is merely the shell of my soul
Eagles inhabit the heavenly heigths
My spirit will never be broken or caught
My body is merely the shell of my soul
My spirit will never be broken or caught


As they gallop on feet of ivory
But the flesh must be given its due
They know neither limit nor bound
For the soul is a free-flying thing
But the flesh must be given its due
For the soul is a free-flying thing


Constrained by the wonder of dying and birth
Like a pony that carries its rider back home
They’re the guardian angels of darkness and light
Like an eagle that needs neither comfort nor thought
Like a pony that carries its master back home
Like an eagle that needs neither comfort nor thought


The horses still run they are free
Like an old friend that’s tried and been true
They see all and hear every sound
To rise up on glorious wings
Like an old friend that’s tried and been true
To rise up on glorious wings

I had a vision of eagles and horses
High on a ridge in a race with the wind
Going higher and higher and faster and faster
On eagles and horses I’m flying again,

John Denver – Daddy, What’s A Train?

Daddy what’s a train? Is it something I can ride?
Does it carry lots of grown-up folks and little kids inside?
Is it bigger than our house? Well how can I explain
When my little boy and girl ask me “Daddy what’s a train?”

When I was just a boy and living by the track
Us kids would gather up the coal in big ‘ole gunnysacks
Then we heard the warning sound as the train pulled into view
The engineer would smile and wave as she went rolling through

She blew so loud and clear, we had to cover up our ears
And we counted cars just as high as we could go
I can almost hear the steam those big old drivers scream
A sound my little kids will never know

Daddy what’s a train? Is it something I can ride?
Does it carry lots of grown-up folks and little kids inside?
Is it bigger than our house? Well how can I explain
When my little boy and girl ask me “Daddy what’s a train?”

I guess the times have changed, kids are different now
‘Cause some don’t even seem to know the milk comes from a cow
My little boy can tell the names of all the baseball stars
I remember how I memorized the names on railroad cars

The Wabash and the TP, Lackawanna, the IC
The Nickel-Plate and the good old Santa Fe
Just names out of the past, I guess they’re fading fast
Every time I hear my little boy say

Daddy what’s a train? Is it something I can ride?
Does it carry lots of grown-up folks and little kids inside?
Is it bigger than our house? Well how can I explain
When my little boy and girl ask me “Daddy what’s a train?”

We climbed into the car, drove down into town
Right out the depot house, but no one was around
We searched the yard togheter for something I could show
But I know there hadn’t been a train for a dozen years or so

All the things I did when I was just a kid
How far away those memories appear
I guess it’s plain to see they still mean a lot to me
‘Cause my ambition was to be an engineer

Daddy what’s a train? Is it something I can ride?
Does it carry lots of grown-up folks and little kids inside?
Is it bigger than our house? Well how can I explain
When my little boy and girl ask me “Daddy what’s a train?”

A Country Girl in Paris – John Denver

A country girl in Paris, Moonlight on the Seine.
Memories of Tennessee and Nashville in the rain.
It’s such a contradiction; a heart that’s filled with pain.
A country girl in Paris dreamin’ Nashville in the rain.

She walks along the boulevard Champs-Elysees,
Thinks about a country boy three thousand miles away.
Pride is such a hard thing, such a price to pay,
To be all alone in Paris, with true love so far away.

Bridge #1

Up upon Montmarte where she stops to rest a while
All the artists look at her and they long to paint her smile.
For even in her sorrow there’s something in the eyes
That makes the young men jealous and makes the old men sigh.

3rd Verse – Instrumental to Bridge #2

Bridge #2

They say the loss of innocence is always linked to pain,
For once the heart is opened, nothing ever is the same.
So the evening lends itself to lovers and romance.
The way to heal a broken heart: give true love just one more chance.

4th Verse: Repeat 1st verse

A Baby Just Like You – John Denver

The season is upon us now, a time for gifts and giving
And as the year draws to its close I think about my living
The Christmas time when I was young, the magic and the wonder
But colors dull and candles dim and dark my standing under

Oh, little angel, shining light, you’ve set my soul to dreaming
You’ve given back my joy in life
You filled me with new meaning

A savior King was born that day, a baby just like you
And as the Magi came with gifts, I come with my gift too
That peace on earth fills up your time
That brotherhood surrounds you,
That you may know the warmth of love
And wrap it all around you.

It’s just a wish, a dream I’m told from days when I was young,
Merry Christmas little Zachary Merry Christmas everyone
Merry Christmas little Zachary Merry Christmas everyone
