Lyrics

There are many ways of being in this circle we call life
A wise man seeks an answer, burns his candle through the night
Is a jewel just a pebble that found a way to shine
Is a hero's blood more righteous than a hobo's sip of wine
full lyrics
There are many ways of being in this circle we call life
A wise man seeks an answer, burns his candle through the night
Is a jewel just a pebble that found a way to shine
Is a hero's blood more righteous than a hobo's sip of wine

Another beautiful by John Denver that he and Joe Henry wrote. I miss him dearly!

I've listened to a lot of John Denver over the years, but this is the first time I remember this song. While his quality of songs is not consistent, when he's on, he's stellar. This song moved me by the lyrics, which contain a wisdom seldom seen, and by the simple beauty of the melody, harmony, and his simple clear voice. I wish he had lived longer. What amazing music might we have today if he had?
