One of the best melodies I've ever heard

I learned to play guitar because of the influence John had on me and my mom. This song makes her cry every time. He has had and continues to have a profound effect on my love of nature, awareness of world issues regarding g human rights and how we take of each other and our planet. He is so much more than a song writer, musician, or historical figure.

I also love this song. I believe it was also used in a beautiful movie I saw years ago. John Denver was a great song writer and singer. Miss him

This John Denver song has such a surreal magical presence on me. I feel the sunshine radiating diamonds of light as they gently caress my face as I blissfully float away on tomorrow's clouds. ❤️

For the kindness of strangers, this song of John's reminds me of a morning camping deep in the AZ desert. The sunshine was bathing the red rocks with new light and a family of Quails skittled through the camp site. The leader stopped, chattered a bit and follow up the rear to make sure all got through.
