Take Me Home, Country Roads

Lyrics

Print-Friendly Lyrics

Almost Heaven, West Virginia
Blue Ridge Mountains, Shenandoah River
Life is old there, older than the trees
Younger than the mountains, blowin’ 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
Modest lady, stranger to blue water
Dark and dusty, painted on the sky
A little bit of sunshine, a teardrop in my eye

Country roads, take me homTo the place I belong
West Virginia, mountain mama
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
Drivin’ down the road I get the 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

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

Take me home, down country roads
Oh take me home, down country roads
