Today - Lyrics. Song sung by John Denver - Words and music by Randy Sparks:

Today, while the blossoms still cling to the vine
I'll taste your strawberries, I'll drink your sweet wine
A million tomorrows shall all pass away
Ere I forget all the joy that is mine, today.

I'll be a dandy, and I'll be a rover
You'll know who I am by the songs that I sing
I'll feast at your table, I'll sleep in your clover
Who cares what the morrow shall bring

Today, while the blossoms still cling to the vine
I'll taste your strawberries, I'll drink your sweet wine
A million tomorrows shall all pass away
Ere I forget all the joy that is mine, today.

I can't be contented with yesterday's glory
I can't live on promises winter to spring
Today is my moment, now is my story
I'll laugh and I'll cry and I'll sing

Today, while the blossoms still cling to the vine
I'll taste your strawberries, I'll drink your sweet wine
A million tomorrows shall all pass away
Ere I forget all the joy that is mine, today.

Today, while the blossoms still cling to the vine
I'll taste your strawberries, I'll drink your sweet wine
A million tomorrows shall all pass away
Ere I forget all the joy that is mine, today.

Annie's Song - Lyrics - Words and music by John Denver

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

Let me give my life to 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.

Country Roads Take Me Home - Lyrics by John Denver

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 mama
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, tear drop in my eye

Country roads, take me home
To the place, I belong
West Virginia, mountain mama
Take me home, country roads

I hear her voice, in the morning hours she calls to 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 mama
Take me home, country roads.

Leaving on a Jet Plane - Lyrics by John Denver

All my bags are packed
I'm ready to go
I'm standing here outside your door
I hate to wake you up to say goodbye
But the dawn is breaking
It's early morn
The taxis waiting
He's blowing his horn
Already I'm so lonesome
I could die

So kiss me and smile for me
Tell me that you'll wait for me
Hold me like you'll never let me go
'cause I'm leaving on a jet plane
Don't know when I'll be back again
Oh babe, I hate to go

There's so many times I've let you down
So many times I've played around
I tell you now, they don't mean a thing
Every place I go, I'll think of you
Every song I sing, I'll sing for you
When I come back, I'll bring your wedding ring

So kiss me and smile for me
Tell me that you'll wait for me
Hold me like you'll never let me go
'cause I'm leaving on a jet plane
Don't know when I'll be back again
Oh babe, I hate to go

Now the time has come to leave you
One more time
Let me kiss you
Then close your eyes
I'll be on my way
Dream about the days to come
When I won't have to leave alone
About the times, I won't have to say

Oh, kiss me and smile for me
Tell me that you'll wait for me
Hold me like you'll never let me go
'cause I'm leaving on a jet plane
Don't know when I'll be back again
Oh babe, I hate to go

But, I'm leaving on a jet plane
Don't know when I'll be back again
Oh babe, I hate to go.

In a Far Away Land - Chinese folk song written by Luo Bin Wang
(translated by I Lee)


In a far away land
There is a nice, pretty young girl
Whenever people walk by her tent
They always turn their heads
And look longingly at her
At her pink smiling face
Like the bright red sun
At her beautiful bright eyes
Like the beautiful bright moon at night.
I would give up all my worldly possessions
To follow her to shepherd the sheep
To see that pink smiling face every day
And her lovely dress with the golden trim.
I wish I could be just a little lamb
So I could stay close beside her.
I wish she would use her tiny leather strap
To gently and constantly tap me lightly on my body.

In a Far Away Land - Lyrics in Chinese

在那遥远的地方

在那遥远的地方
有位好姑娘
人们走过她的帐房
都要回头留恋地张望
她那粉红的笑脸
好像红太阳
她那活泼动人的眼睛
好像晚上明媚的月亮
我愿抛弃了财产
跟她去牧羊
每天看着那粉红的笑脸
和那美丽金边的衣裳
我愿做一只小羊
跟在她身旁
我愿她拿着细细的皮鞭
不断轻轻打在我身上

You were my first concert when I was ten and now that I'm much older still the best. You got me thru some rough times and made me enjoy happy times that much more. When I go to the mountains, I always think of you. I was brought up with your music, so thank you for the beautiful voice, musicianship, talent and being a beautiful soul. I will always fight for conservation in your name."
