• Almost heaven, west virginia
  Blue ridge mountains
  Shenandoah river -
  Life is old there
  Older than the trees
  Younger than the mountains
  Growin like a breeze
• Country roads, take me home
  To the place I belong
  West virginia, mountain momma
  Take me home, country roads
• All my memories gathered round her
  Miners lady, stranger to blue water
  Dark and dusty, painted on the sky
  Misty taste of moonshine
  Teardrops in my eye
