JOHN DENVER lyrics - Celebration Of Life

Windsong

Original and similar lyrics
(Denver/Henry) The wind is the whisper of our mother the earth. The wind is the hand of our father the sky. The wind watches over our struggles and pleasures. The wind is the goddess who first learned to fly. The wind is the bearer of bad and good tidings, the weaver of darkness, the bringer of dawn. The wind gives the rain, then builds us a rainbow, the wind is the singer who sang the first song. The wind is a twister of anger and warming, the wind brings the fragrance of freshly mown hay. The wind is a racer, a wild stallion running and the sweet taste of love on a slow summer's day. The wind knows the songs of cities and canyons, the thunder of mountains, the roar of the sea. The wind is the taker and giver of mornings, the wind is the symbol of all that is free. So welcome the wind and the wisdom she offers, follow her summons when she calls again. In your heart and your spirit, let the breezes surround you. Lift up your voice then and sing with the wind.

Wild Montana Skies

Harris Emmylou "Duets"
(John Denver) He was born in the Bitteroot Valley in the early morning rain Wild geese over the water, heading north and home again Bringin' a warm wind from the south, bringin' the first taste of the spring His mother took him to her breast and softly she did sing: Oh, Montana, give this child a home Give him the love of a good family and a woman of his own Give him a fire in his heart, give him a light in his eyes Give him the wild wind for a brother and the wild Montana skies His mother died that summer and he never learned to cry He never knew his father and he never did ask why He never knew the answers that would make an easy way But he learned to know the wilderness and to be a man that way His mother's brother took him in to his family and his home Gave him a hand that he could lean on and a strength to call his own And he learned to be a farmer and he learned to love the land And he learned to read the seasons and he learned to make a stand On the eve of his 21st birthday, he set out on his own He was 30 years and runnin' when he found his way back home Ridin' a storm across the mountains and an achin' in his heart Said he came to turn the pages and to make a brand new start Now he never told the story of the time that he was gone Some say he was a lawyer, some say he was a john There was something in the city that he said he couldn't breathe There was something in the country that he said he couldn't leave Now some say he was crazy and some are glad he's gone But some of us will miss him and we'll try to carry on Giving a voice to the forest, giving a voice to the dawn Giving a voice to the wilderness and the land that he lived on

When The Sun Says Good Night To The Mountains

Adam Eve
Now when the sun says good-day to the mountains and the night says hello to the dawn I'm alone with my dreams on the hilltop I can still hear your voice though you're gone I hear from my door the love songs thru the wind it brings back sweet memories of you. Now when the sun says good-day to the mountains I'm alone dreaming only of you.

Waterboy

LIVE "Mental Jewelry"
What do you say to the child Whose god is in the T.V. And what do you say to the man Who blames the world on T.V. They don't even know how to sing my song But they won't even try it With me, with me, with me Who is standing over playing like The teacher Harnessing the learned Who try but can't leave her I want to beg the liars to lay down Their sirens That play like the angels To my deep desire Free my son Let him walk right through the rain Free my son Make him waterboy Free my son There he stands down on the shore Free my son What do you say to the man Who treats her like a mother And what do you say to the man Who treats him like a father 'Come and see my heart. Come inside And learn' Come and see my soul, it's like yours, I say it's just like yours' Who is making over Idolizing princes banishing the dreamers with Barbed-wire fences And telling all the children who run to Her feet That they have no vision And love's all diseased Free my son

All I Need Is You

JESUS CULTURE "We Cry Out"
Left my fear by the side of the road Hear You speak, won't let go Fall to my knees, as I lift my hands to pray Got every reason to be here again Father's love that draws me in And all my eyes wanna see is a glimpse of You All I need is You All I need is You, Lord, is You, Lord All I need is You All I need is You, Lord, is You, Lord One more day, and it's not the same Your Spirit calls my heart to sing Drawn to the voice of my Savior once again Where would my soul be without Your Son Gave His life to save the earth Rest in the thought that You're watching over me All I need is You All I need is You All I need is You All I need is You You hold the universe You hold everyone on earth You hold the universe You hold, You hold

This Good Day

Fernando Ortega "Home"
Morning sun, morning glories Pouring down the hill, Through my window I can feel the ocean breeze. Noisy sparrows fill the oak trees, Swallows can't stay still. And in the glad commotion, Lord, You speak to me. Chorus: If rain clouds come Or the cold winds blow, You're the One who goes before me And in my heart I know That this good day, It is a gift from You. The world is turning in its place Because You made it to. I lift my voice To sing a song of praise On this good day. I will walk to Woodman's Cove, Fishing boats are leaving, Seagulls follow just above the water. I will wait until the sunset Brings them home again, Rigging lines and anchors in the harbor. Chorus (2x)
