This song makes me smile. At our wedding rehersal, the music director was supposed to put on Annie's Song for me to walk down the isle, but instead, everyone hears John Denver sing 'All my bags are packed, I'm ready to go"! We got a nice laugh out of it. :)

I'm mezmerized by the power of these old songs and the sense memory stuff that goes along with it. He sang like an angel.

It was a hit for PP&M, but Mr. Denver wrote it. Similarly Crazy (Patsy Cline) was written by Willie Nelson.
