JOHN DENVER lyrics - Celebration Of Life

Leaving On A Jet Plane

Original and similar lyrics
He was born in the summer of his twentyseverth year coming home to a place he'd never been before. He left yesterday behind him you might say he was born again you might say he found a key to ev'ry door. When he first came to the mountains his life was away on the road and hangin' by a song. But the string's already broken and he doesn't really care it keeps changin' fast and it don't last for long. But the Colorado Rocky Mountain high I've seen it rainin' fire in the sky. The shadow from the starlight is softer than a lullaby. Rocky mountain high in Colorado. Rocky mountain high in Colorado. He climbed cathedral mountains he saw silver clouds below he saw everything as far as you can see. And they say that he got crazy once and he tried to touch the sun and he lost a friend but kept his memory. Now he walks in quiet solitude the forests and the streams seeking grace in every step he takes. His sight has turned inside himself to try and understand the serenity of a clear blue mountain lake. And the Colorado Rocky Mountain high I've seen it rainin' fire in the sky. Talk to God and listen to the casual reply. Rocky mountain high in Colorado. Rocky mountain high in Colorado. Now his life is full of wonder but his heart still knows some fear of a simple thing he cannot comprehend. Why they try to tear the mountains down to bring in a couple more more people more scars upon the land. And the Colorado Rocky Mountain high I've seen it rainin' fire in the sky. He know he'd be a poorer man if he never saw an eagle fly. Rocky mountain high in Colorado. Rocky mountain high in Colorado.

Montana

JAMES TAYLOR "Before This World"
I'm not smart enough for this life I've been livin', A little bit slow for the pace of the dream. It's not I'm ungrateful for all I've been given; But nevertheless, just the same... I wish to my soul, I was back in Montana, High on my mountain and deep in the snow. Up in my cabin, over the valley, Under the blankets with you. Over the ocean from here. Over the mountains from there. Who can imagine the scale of the forces That pushed this old mountain range up in the sky? Tectonic creation, erosion, mutation; Somethin' to pleasure God's eye. The world is a wonder of lightnin' and thunder, And green of the ground as we fall from the sky. The old and new faces, the tribes and the races... Thousands of places to try. Over the ocean from here. Over the mountains from there. One sits and waits while the other one wanders, And squanders his time with a life on the road. Down from the mountain, across the wide ocean, The world is in motion and cannot be slowed. Enough for today... the demands of the moment, The thing on my mind is the work in my hand. Wood for the woodstove and water for coffee, Somethin' I can still understand. We got a few friends but not many neighbors, The trip into town takes us most of the day. And after, "Hello", and "it's sure good to see you", It seems like there's nothin' to say. Over the ocean from here.

Herman The Hermit

JERRY LEE LEWIS "The Return Of Rock"
High on the mountain A man sat a-countin' All the rocks he had found the day He lived all alone 'cause the Doggone lone-gettin'-rocks was all he craved They said he was lazy and just too crazy To face the world outside But they didn't know all the rocks were gold And Herman was the richest little man around Herman the hermit Has to get the permit To get his long hairs cut Pretty girls scared him Never went near him 'til one day on a mountain high Along came a creature with a lot of pretty pictures And made old Herman kisses rocks goodbye She carried him to town just to show him around And dressed him in the latest craze While he clipped his hair, You know, she slipped downstairs And had them rocks appraised Now she was told they were solid gold The wheels started spinning around The morning paper read: "Ole Herman dropped dead" And now she's the richest little woman in town. Herman the hermit Has to get the permit To get his long hairs cut Pretty girls scared him Never went near him 'til one day on a mountain high Along came a creature with a lot of pretty pictures And made old Herman kisses rocks goodbye

Mountain Of Love

JOHNNY RIVERS "In Action!"
Standing on the mountain looking down on the city The way I feel is a doggone pity. Teardrops falling down a mountainside Many times I've been here Many times I've cried We used to be so happy When we were in love High on a mountain of love. Night after night I've been standing here alone Weeping my heart out to cold gray dawn Praying that you're lonely and you'll come here too Hoping just by chance that I get a glimpse of you Trying hard to find you Somewhere I love High on a mountain of love. A mountain of love A mountain of love You should be ashamed We used to be a mountain of love But you just changed your name Way down below there's a half a million people Somewhere there's a church with a big tall steeple Inside a church there's an altar filled with flowers Wedding bells are ringing and they should have been ours That's why I'm so lonely My dreams gone above High on a mountain of love. (Musical interlude) A mountain of love A mountain of love You should be ashamed We used to be a mountain of love But you just changed your name Way down below there's a half a million people Somewhere there's a church with a big tall steeple Inside a church there's an altar filled with flowers Wedding bells are ringing that should have been ours That's why I'm so lonely My dreams gone above High on a mountain of love. High on a mountain of love. High on a mountain of love. High on a mountain of love (fade)

Soul On Fire

HOODIE ALLEN "Leap Year"
[Intro / Chorus] Bless your soul Uh! Hand's up put them high to the sky, Let me set your soul on fire tonight. Not, not, we not tryin' to fight, Let me set your soul on fire tonight. We live fast ain't time for wakin' up I make time, then we be breakin' up. So ask God, give me one more try, Let me set your soul on fire. [Verse 1] She said it's her time, I asked whens mine I said boy I'm tryin' to windle your money like Ben Stein So I just circle back, I built 'em the Venn Die You know they figure, the figures every man lies. And every girl cheats, so let up of both us And then try to cover up and you would try to pull LeAnn Rhymn. So fuck it, I bailed, Yup, let me leave for the night though. Room full of nice suits, American Pyscho Aight though, let me say a toast, Pull the glasses out. Now pour the gasoline, put the fucking matches out. I asked her, "Where to sleep?" She pointed "that's the couch" I heard it on the street, and I ain't have to ask around. 'Cause news travels real fast 'round these parts, So if you jump the gun, you never get it to restart. You say love is fun, you must have been a retard. We only looking for somewhere to be part, until we on fire. [Chorus] Hand's up put them high to the sky, Let me set your soul on fire tonight. Not, not, we not tryin' to fight, Let me set your soul on fire tonight. We live fast ain't time for wakin' up I make time, then we be breakin' up. So ask God, give me one more try, Let me set your soul on fire. [Verse 2] Rollin' out of my bed, taking longer then I'm s'pposed tah With so many girls they actin' like they already home, so You ever see a model in the morning? Get your hopes up. She went from Heidi Klum into having close-ups. And now that I assume, everybody takin' posters and glamour shots We turnin' fake the second they turn the camera on. Waitress' waitin' for their break like Cameron Diaz, We spaz on drugs Tiama on, We bad, like Mike, I am the king of the Camelot. We grab every chance, somehow now man LeBron Feed that, uh, there is to much heat in the Amazon. Read that like as I may be coming back, like I never was, Trophies as a kid, there ain't no room to make my shelf fit. Just because I want it all, doesn't mean I'm selphish. Never really listened 'til my eardrums melted. Uh, Van Gogh, Van Kicks, Van pelt that fire! [Chorus] Hand's up put them high to the sky, Let me set your soul on fire tonight. Not, not, we not tryin' to fight, Let me set your soul on fire tonight. We live fast ain't time for wakin' up I make time, then we be breakin' up. So ask God, give me one more try, Let me set your soul on fire. [Outro] Hands up, put them, hands up put them, Hands up put them high to the sky. Hands up, put them, hands up put them, Hands up put them high to the sky. Hands up, put them, hands up put them, Hands up put them high to the sky. Hands up, put them, hands up put them, Hands up put them high to the sky. I will set your soul, I will set your soul.
