Miss him. There are some people that by their mere presence alone have this magical effect on our universe. John Denver is one of these truly wonderful people!

This song reminds me of my dad. He would make up songs to pass the time while we drove through the Virginia mountains to see my grandmother. I miss him and those wonderful songs he sang. The memories make me smile. I love you Dad!

Truly great song. The first time I heard it was in the car and it seemed such a perfect song. When they said John Denver I confused him with Bob Denver and honestly thought that Gilligan had recorded it.

In my collection of about two thousand 45's... this was one of the first ones I ever bought along with I'll Play for You (Seals & Croft)... Sir Duke (Stevie Wonder)... I'm Not Lisa (Jessi Colter)... just to name a few... This was back in the summer of 1975. I bought five but I can't recall the other one. There used to be a record shop called Steve's Southern Music in downtown Orlando, FL. I'd spend hours and hours going through all their 45's and LP's.

How can you not like this? Toe-tapping, beer drinking, homesick music. Classic song for anyone 'far away' from home.
