30 Songs in 30 Days, Day 8: A Song That You Know All the Words to

Song: "Take Me Home, Country Roads"
Writers: John Denver, Bill Danoff and Taffy Nivert
Singer: John Denver
Album: Poems, Prayers and Promises

I was 24, on a beach in the Philippines. A man played a guitar. We all sang the song. I was the only one who knew the words to the bridge so I got a little solo. Now you can learn them, too!


I hope you'll join us for the "30 Songs in 30 Days" challenge, inspired by the tumblr list. Our 30 Songs roster:

Day 9: A Song That You Can Dance to


  1. I like this one and will use it in my classes when I get the chance.

  2. I remember one of my elementary school music teachers using this....we might have even performed it in one of our concerts....

  3. Video broken, but I know all of John Denver's songs. This is another case of the guitar/folk book that I stole from my mother way back when; all of his lyrics were in there as well. When all the kids were outside playing, I was reading, or memorizing lyrics and learning chords on my guitar, LOL. My alltime favorite John Denver song is Sunshine On My Shoulders, but this song runs a close second. :)

    1. I also really like "Annie's Song" and (schmaltziest of all) "Perhaps Love."
