Country Road

Campfire Songs;classic camp songs Photo by lowjumpingfrog

Almost heaven, West Virginia,
Blue Ridge Mountains, Shenandoah River
Life is older here, older than the trees
Younger than the mountains, growing like a breeze

Country road, take me home
To the place I belong
West Virginia, Mountain Mama
Take me home, country roads

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

I hear a voice in the morning, how she calls me
Radio reminds me of my home far away
Driving down the road I get the feeling
that I should have been home yesterday, yesterday.

The Happy Wanderer

I love to go a-wandering
Along the mountain track,
And as a go I love to sing,
My knapsack on my back.

Valderi, Valdera, Valderi,
Valderi, Valdera,
My Knapsack on my back.
I love to wander by the stream
That dances in the sun.
So joyously it calls to me:
Come join my happy song.

I wave my hat to all I meet
And they wave back to me,
And blackbirds call so loud and sweet,
From every greenwood tree.

High overhead the skylarks wing,
They never rest at home,
But just like me they love to sing,
As o'er the world we roam.

Oh, may I go a-wandering
Until the day I die.
And may I always laugh and sing,
Beneath God's clear blue sky.

Blowin' in the Wind

How many roads must a man walk down
Before they call him a man
How many seas must a white dove sail
Before she sleeps in the sand
How many times must the cannon balls fly
Before they're forever banned

The answer my friend, is blowin' in the wind,
The answer is blowin' in the wind

How many years can a mountain exist
Before they're washed to the sea
How many years can some people exist
Before they're allowed to be free
How many times can a man turn his head
And pretend that he just doesn't see

How many times must a man look up
Before he reaches the sky
How many ears must one man have
Before he can hear people cry
How many deaths will it take till he knows
That too many people have died.
