Sunshine on My Shoulders

Sunshine on my shoulders makes me happy
Sunshine in my eyes can make me cry
Sunshine on the water looks so lovely
Sunshine almost always makes me high

If I had a day that I could give you
I'd give to you a day just like today
If I had a song that I could sing for you
I'd sing a song to make you feel this way

If I had a tale that I could tell you
I'd tell a tale sure to make you smile
If I had a wish that I could wish for you
I'd make a wish for sunshine all the while

Rocky Mountain High

He was born in the summer of his 27th year
Coming home to a place he'd never been before
He left yesterday behind him, you might say he was born again
You might say he found a key for every door

When he first came to the mountains his life was far away
On the road and hanging by a song
But the string's already broken and he doesn't really care
It keeps changing fast and it doesn't last for long

But the Colorado Rocky Mountain high
I've seen it raining fire in the sky
The shadow from the starlight is softer than a lullaby
Rocky Mountain High

He climbed cathedral mountains, he saw silver clouds below
He saw everything as far as you can see ...

Poems, Prayers and Promises

I have to say it now
It's been a good life all in all
I'ts really fine to have a chance to hang around
And lie there by the fire
And watch the evening tire
...
And talk of poems and prayers and promises
And things that we believe in
How sweet it is to love someone
How right it is to care ...

Around and Around (c) Cherry Lane Music

Time as I've known it doesn't take much time to pass by me
Minutes into days, turn into months, turn into years
They hurry by me

Still I love to see the sun go down
and the world go around

Dreams full of promises
Hopes for the future, I've had many
Dreams I can't remember now, Hopes that I've forgotten
Faded memories...

I love to see the morning as it steals across the sky
I love to remember and I love to wonder why
And I hope that I'm around so I can be there when I die ... When I'm gone

I hope that you will think of me
In moments when you're happy and you're smiling
That the thoughts will comfort you on cold and cloudy days
If you are crying

That you'll love to see the sun go down and the world go around ...
and around ... and around

All these are AWESOME JOHN DENVER songs!! It's hard to believe his tragic accident happened 10 1/2 years ago still to this day... I miss him & his concerts... He was a GOOD man...who cared about our Earth it's people, and our wildlife..  [ send green star]  [ accepted]
