0  comments

West Virginia is certainly lucky to have John Denver sing this classic and iconic song, ‘Take Me Home, Country Roads’ and when you see two youngsters pull off this song as their own, you cannot help but smile.

I mean, listen to that harmony, Y’all!

“Take Me Home, Country Roads” 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 now, country roads,
Take me home now, country roads.

Take Me Home, Country Roads, John Denver

Two teens cover Take Me Home, Country Road

Now, Emily Joy and a certain Luke Gallagher are throwing all these nostalgias to us as they perfectly blend their voices to John Denver’s hit. Currently, this cover had 1 million views. This is not the first time that this song was put to another melody by both high caliber and breaking artists.

Probably, the closest version of this song in my heart was the CMA tribute where 30 country artists dropped rivalry and went straight ahead to collaboration. It was definitely an honest to goodness mixture of country talents.

Interestingly, this song affected a lot of West Virginia state decisions. One cannot blame them as this Denver song successfully transcends time. The West Virginia Legislature made ‘Take Me Home, Country Roads’ as one of their official state songs. Meanwhile, West Virginia University made the quintessential song as their official university anthem. Since 1972, it has been played on every football pre-game show.

God, the song is not just ‘almost heaven.’

It’s certainly heavenly.
