HAPPY BIRTHDAY WEST VIRGINA

John Denver's famous song rings clear to most West Virginians, even more
clearly with the beautiful photographs by Calhoun's own Rich Westfall.

West Virginia's beautiful capitol

Almost heaven, West Virginia,
Blue Ridge Mountains, Shenandoah River.
Life is old there, older than the trees,
Younger than the mountains, growin' like a breeze.

Our highest mountain Spruce Knob

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

The waters of William's River

All my memories gathered round her
Miners lady, stranger to blue water
Dark and dusty, painted on the sky
Misty taste of moonshine
Teardrops in my eye

Ancient Dolly Sods

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

Pastoral Cranberry Glades

I hear her voice
In the mornin' hour she calls me
The radio reminds me of my home far away
And drivin' down the road I get a feelin'
That I should have been home yesterday

Take me home, down country roads...

Words and Music by Bill Danoff,
Taffy Nivert and John Denver
