JOHN DENVER lyrics - John Denver

I Wish I Could Have Been There (Woodstock)

Original and similar lyrics
This song was first released on the Whose Garden Was This? Album. It is the only album it has been released on. I wish I could have been there on the highway When the people came from miles around to see The children of the flowers come together I wish I could have been there in the sunshine With the sound of lovely laughter in the air And the music makers first began to play To hear them play And I wish I could have been there in the rain When the clouds were full of castles in the sky And I wish I could have heard the people sing As the rhytmn and the words came floating by I wish I could have been there in the starlight When the country side was trying once again And the music and the makers the poets and the singers And the children of the flowers have all gone Words and music by John Denver

The Immigrant

NEIL SEDAKA "Best Of-Laughter In The Rain"
Harbours open there doors to the young searching foreigner Come to live in the light of the big L of liberty Plains and open skies bill boards would advertise Was it anything like that when you arrived Dream boats carried the future to the heart of America People were waiting in line for a place by the river Chorus It was time when strangers were welcome here Music would play they tell me the days were sweet and clear It was a sweeter tune and there was so much room That people could come from everywhere Now he arrvies with hopes and his heart set on miracles Come to marry his fortune with a hand full of promises To find they've closed the door they don't want him anymore There isn't anymore to go around Turning away he remembers he once heard a legend That spoke of a mystical magical land called America It was time when strangers were welcome here Music would play they tell me the days were sweet and clear It was a sweeter tune and there was so much room That people could come from everywhere It was time when strangers were welcome here Music would play they tell me the days were sweet and clear It was a sweeter tune and there was so much room That people could come from everywhere
