Country Roads, Take Me Home

Country sideroad off of Hwy 46, north of Amery, Wisconsin.

Country Roads song made famous by John Denver

Almost heaven, West Virginia
Blue Ridge Mountains
Shenandoah River,
Life is old there
Older than the trees
Younger than the mountains
Blowin’ like the breeze

Country roads, take me home
To the place I belong
West Virginia, mountain momma
Take me home, country roads
All my memories gathered ’round her
Miner’s lady, stranger to blue water
Dark and dusty, painted on the sky
Misty taste of moonshine
Teardrops in my eye

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, yesterday

Take me home, now country roads

      Julie, sending you an email with photos and writing. I hope you don’t mind me using your email address. Loren

      1. Not at all I enjoy your writing so much I was in the class at Nekoosa Library trying to understand the internet and you also were there I still don’t get it I think I have read everything you have put out that I can get to. I’m actually using my cell phone and I don’t get it like the kids these days

          This must be the Julie who owns Ace Hardware. Wow, good to hear from you. I’ll send you more of the Elkfarm emails if that’s okay with you. What did I call you that day, the Charmer? Ms Charisma?

  2. Hi everyone Thankfulness to my father who informed me about this blog, this weblog is genuinely awesome. vielen dank

    1. Please tell me more. I can’t read Arabic, which I’m guessing is your language. Glad you enjoy the stories, though some might not translate, the humor might not translate to your culture.

  3. Useful info. Fortunate me I found your website by chance, and I’m shocked why this coincidence did not happened earlier! I bookmarked it.

  4. Rats desert a sinking ship.
