Question by mulderlx: John Denver’s song whose lyrics say west Virginia, is he talking about WestVa or Western Va?
I heard this as a bit of trivia, but is this bit of trivia also a myth?
Answer by MixedMetaphor West Virginia
“Almost heaven, West Virginia,
Blue Ridge Mountains, Shenandoah River.
Life is old there, older than the trees,
Younger than the mountains, blowing like a breeze.”
Those are the country roads that he wanted to take him home. Not the ones we have in Virginia.
Denver didn’t write this song, in fact, when he recorded it he had never even been to West Virginia. Two musicians, Bill Danoff and Taffy Nivert, wrote it while driving to Maryland — they’d never been to West Virginia either! Danoff got his inspiration from postcards sent to him by a friend who DID live there.
