It was released as a single performed by Denver on April 12, , peaking at number two on Billboard ' s US Hot singles for the week ending August 28, It has continued to sell, with over 1. The song has a prominent status as an iconic symbol of West Virginia, which it describes as "Almost Heaven". In March , it became one of the four official state anthems of West Virginia. Inspiration for the song had come while the couple was driving along Clopper Road in nearby Montgomery County, Maryland to a Nivert family reunion in Gaithersburg. To pass the time en route, Danoff had made up a ballad about the little winding roads they were taking. He had even briefly considered using "Massachusetts" rather than "West Virginia" as both four-syllable state names would have fit the song's meter. Today, the landscape around Clopper Road has changed drastically due to development and little resembles the countryside scenery that once surrounded it. To Danoff, the lyric " t he radio reminds me of my home far away" in the bridge is quintessentially West Virginian, an allusion to listening during his '50s childhood days to the program Saturday Night Jamboree on Wheeling's WWVA from his home far away, in Springfield, Massachusetts. Danoff had some other West Virginia associations to draw from as well.

John Denver Lyrics. Almost heaven, West Virginia, Blue Ridge Mountains, Shenandoah River Life is old there, older than the trees, younger than the mountains, blowing like a breeze Country roads, take me home to the place I belong West Virginia, mountain mamma, take me home, country roads All my memories gather round her, miner's lady, stranger to blue water Dark and dusty, painted on the sky, misty taste of moonshine, teardrop in my eye Country roads, take me home to the place I belong West Virginia, mountain mamma, 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 mamma, take me home, country roads Country roads, take me home to the place I belong West Virginia, mountain mamma, take me home, country roads Take me home, down country roads Take me home, down country roads. Submit Corrections. In March , it became one of the four official state anthems of the state. Bill Danoff made up this song while driving with his then-wife along Clopper Road in Maryland. Although he was from Massachusetts and that word would also fit the song as "West Virginia", he later explained, "I didn't want to write about Massachusetts because I didn't think the word was musical. And the Bee Gees , of course, had a hit record called Massachusetts , but what did I know? Lyrics licensed by.
I wouldn't purposefully subject my daughters to that BS. If I catch you in the back seat trying to pick her locks, I'm going to send you back to mother in a card board box. The Mormon girl has the light of Christ shining through her, and you were drawn in. And there's a story I'm going to look again for too.
That one I haven't asked him about yet though since I feel like it would be a little presumptuous and might seem like I'm rushing things commitment-wise. Their job is HARD. He knows that is a possibility. Sometimes I seat and think how we can make this work when both of us have career aspirations I am trying to find a tenure-track position close to my husband this year, and I just keep my fingers crossed that I can do that. She will be oh-so-grateful if you do not pressure her to discard those values. In the end people have to make their own decisions. Read that entire speech and you will see a slew of racist statements. The important thing is whether or not your spouse will support you in your endevours to live your religion.
