  • There is a river that runs from the mountains, that one river is all rivers, all rivers are that one. 
There is a tree that stands in the forest, that one tree is all forests, all trees are that one.
There is a flower that blooms in the desert, that one blossom is all flowers, all flowers are that one.
It is the song of life, it is the flower of faith, it is the tree of temptation it is the river of no regret.

There is a child that cries in the ghetto, that one child is all children, all children are that one. 
There is a vision that shines in the darkness, that one vision is all of our dreams, all of our dreams are that one.
It is a vision of heaven, it is a child of promise, it is the song of life, it is the river of no regret.

Let this be a voice for the mountains, 
let this be a voice for the river, 
let this be a voice for the forest, 
let this be a voice for the flowers, 
let this be a voice for the ocean, 
let this be a voice for the desert,
let this be a voice for the children, let this be a voice for the dreamers,
let this be a voice of no regret, no regret. - lyrics from “Amazon” by John Denver

  • “There's a name for war and killing
There's a name for giving in
When you know another answer
For me the name is sin
But there's still time to turn around
And make all hatred cease
And give another name to living
And we could call it peace
And peace would be the road we walk
Each step along the way
And peace would be the way we work
And peace the way we play
And in all we see that's different
And in all the things we know
Peace would be the way we look
And peace the way we grow
There's a name for separation
There's a name for first and last
When it's all for us or nothing
For me the name is past
But there's still time to turn around
And make all hatred cease
And give a name to all the future
And we could call it peace
And if peace is what we pray for
And peace is what we give
Then peace will be the way we are
And peace the way we live
Yes there still is the time to turn around
And make all hatred cease
And give another name to living
And we can call it peace”

  • On July 4, 1986, John Denver joined a star-studded celebration honoring the Statue of Liberty Centennial. The statue, a gift from the people of France to the people of the United States, was dedicated on October 28, 1886.
The Statue of Liberty is a figure of Libertas, a robed Roman liberty goddess. She holds a torch above her head with her right hand, and in her left hand carries a tablet inscribed in Roman numerals with "JULY IV MDCCLXXVI" (July 4, 1776), the date of the U.S. Declaration of Independence. A broken shackle and chain lay at her feet as she walks forward, commemorating the recent national abolition of slavery. The statue became an icon of freedom and of the United States, and a national park tourism destination. It is a welcoming sight to immigrants arriving from abroad.

  • Today is World Environment Day, the United Nations day for encouraging awareness and action to protect our environment. Above all, it’s the "people's day" for doing something to take care of the Earth. That "something" can be local, national or global. It can be a solo action or involve a crowd. Each World Environment Day is organized around a theme, & the theme for 2019 is “Air pollution”. What action can you take to protect our planet? #WorldEnvironmentDay #mothernature #BeatAirPollution @unenvironment 📷 by John Denver

  • “Lost and alone on some forgotten highway
Traveled by many, remembered by few
Lookin' for something that I can believe in
Lookin' for something that I'd like to do with my life
There's nothin' behind me and nothin' that ties me to
Something that might have been true yesterday
Tomorrow is open, right now it seems to be more than enough
To just be here today, and I don't know
What the future is holdin' in store
I don't know where I'm goin' I'm not sure where I've been
There's a spirit that guides me, a light that shines for me
My life is worth the livin', I don't need to see the end
Sweet, sweet surrender, live, live without care
Like a fish in the water, like a bird in the air”

  • “Celebrate morning
The cry of a loon on a lake in the night
the dreams that are born in the dawn's early light
Celebrate morning
Celebrate living
The laughter that sings in the heart of a child
The freedom that flies at the call of the wild
Celebrate living
Celebrate evening
The stars that appear in the loss of the sun
Whispering winds, we are one, we are one
Celebrate earth day, every day
Celebrate earth day, every day
Celebrate land and sea
Celebrate you and me
Celebrate earth Day, every day”

  • "Railroad Earth: The John Denver Letters" is now available at digital retailers and streaming providers. Railroad Earth has composed music for never-released John Denver lyrics, with two songs set for digital release Earth Day, April 22, 2019 and 7” vinyl to be available at music retailers June 2019. While preparing handwritten lyrics of classic songs for display in a 2017 Grammy Museum exhibit, Denver’s management came across notebooks containing poems and ideas for songs that were never completed during Denver’s life. Todd Sheaffer, front man for Railroad Earth, set the lyrics to music and he and the band recorded two new songs, “If You’ll Be My Lady,” and “Through The Night.”

  • “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 the memory.
Now he walks in quiet solitude, the forest and the streams, seeking grace in every step he takes.
His sight is 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 raining fire in the sky.
You can talk to God and listen to the casual reply.
Rocky Mountain high, Colorado. Rocky Mountain high”

  • “All of her days have gone soft and cloudy
All of her dreams have gone dry
All of her nights have gone sad and shady
She's getting ready to fly
Fly away fly away fly away
Life in the city can make you crazy
For sounds of the sand and the sea
Life in a high-rise can make you hungry
For things that you can't even see
Fly away, fly away, fly away
In this whole world there's nobody as lonely as she
There's nowhere to go and there's nowhere
That she'd rather be.
She's looking for lovers and children playing
She's looking for signs of the spring
She listens for laughter and sounds of dancing
She listens for any old things
Fly away, fly away, fly away”

  • “On the road of experience, join in the living day.
If there’s an answer it’s just that it’s just that way,
When you’re looking for space and to find out who you are.
When you’re looking to try and reach the stars.
It’s a sweet, sweet dream, sometimes I’m almost there.
Sometimes I fly like an eagle and sometimes I’m deep in despair.”

  • “Perhaps love is like a resting place
A shelter from the storm
It exists to give you comfort
It is there to keep you warm
And in those times of trouble
When you are most alone
The memory of love will bring you home

Perhaps love is like a window
Perhaps an open door
It invites you to come closer
It wants to show you more
And even if you lose yourself
And don't know what to do
The memory of love will see you through”

  • 60 years ago we lost some of music’s biggest legends. Thankfully the music lives on. “Everyday, it's a gettin' closer,
Goin' faster than a roller coaster,
Love like yours will surely come my way, (hey, hey, hey)
Everyday, it's a gettin' faster,
Everyone says go ahead and ask her,
Love like yours will surely come my way, (hey, hey, hey)
Everyday seems a little longer,
Every way, love's a little stronger,
Come what may, do you ever long for
True love from me?”

  • “Well I guess that you probably know by now
I was one who wanted to fly
I wanted to ride on that arrow of fire right up into heaven
And I wanted to go for every man
Every child, every mother of children
I wanted to carry the dreams of all people right up to the stars
And I prayed that I'd find an answer there
Or maybe I would find a song
Giving a voice to all of the hearts that cannot be heard
And for all of the ones who live in fear
And all of those who stand apart
My being there would bring us a little step closer together
They were flying for me
They were flying for everyone
They were trying to see a brighter day for each and everyone
They gave us their light
They gave us their spirit and all they could be
They were flying for me
They were flying for me”
