Ohhhhh...I have to put this one on too, for the deep wisdom inside John's words, and for his open honesty about his life too.

Ah yes ... what isn't there to like about a guy that bought the farm in Monteray, was considered all washed up and then goes from mountain high to sea-level in fifteen secounds flat. I mean what better way to thank God you are a country boy ... than in person?

Sincerely,

Here are the lyrics, as I was able to transcribe them from the home recording posted on YouTube:

Yellowstone: Coming Home
(John Denver)

Returning, forever returning, coming home.
Belonging, forever belonging, never alone.
Mystery, oh, the dreaming of dreams!
Oh, my brother, my home, my sister, my home,
Oh the tenderness, oh the longing for love,
Oh the beautiful waves, the sweet coming home!
Oh ooh, Oh ooh,* Come home
Oh ooh, oh ooh
oh ooh, oh ooh ooh ooh
(then wolf howls)

*like a melodic wolf howl

Gargoyle - have you ever stopped to think about the wonderful things people will be saying about you after you are gone? Must be nice to live a life in judgement of others.

Returning
Forever returning

One hopes it comes across better with music. It's kind of spare in ideas, but the performance can add a lot to the words, can't it? I'll have to go follow the links posted.
