Annie’s Song by John Denver ft James Galway

Without a doubt, Annie’s Song deserved a special spot to John Denver’s repertoire of best songs that he wrote himself and ultimately performed. This was affirmed after Annie’s Song became a major hit not only in the United States but across the United Kingdom and Canada all securing a number one spot in respective countries.

Establishing himself as an international classic flutist, The Man with the Golden Flute, Sir James Galway added to the song’s already cemented classical melody. Ultimately, it also paved the way to James Galway’s record as a flutist who secured a top spot on UK Singles Chart.

Indeed, this song would always emerge as a timely reminder that songs back then still tell a relevant story in today’s fast-paced world. It’s a time capsule of artists creating a magnum opus.

“Annie’s Song” Lyrics

You fill up my senses like a night in the forest,
like the mountains in springtime, like a walk in the rain,
like a storm in the desert, like a sleepy blue ocean.
You fill up my senses, come fill me again.

Come let me love you, let me give my life to you,
let me drown in your laughter, let me die in your arms,
let me lay down beside you, let me always be with you.
Come let me love you, come love me again.

You fill up my senses like a night in the forest,
like the mountains in springtime, like a walk in the rain,
like a storm in the desert, like a sleepy blue ocean.
You fill up my senses, come fill me again.
