Country roads, take me home
To the place I belong
West Virginia, mountain momma
Take me home down country roads

  1. 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
    Country roads, take me home
    To the place I belong
    West Virginia, mountain momma
    Take me home down country roads
  2. All my memories gather round her
    Miner's lady, stranger to blue water
    Dark and dusky, painted on the sky
    Misty taste of moonshine, teardrops in my eye
    Country roads, take me home
    To the place I belong
    West Virginia, mountain momma
    Take me home down country roads
  3. I hear her voice in the sky, how she calls me
    Radio reminds me of my home far away
    Riding down the road I get a feeling
    I should have been home yesterday, yesterday
    Country roads, take me home
    To the place I belong
    West Virginia, mountain momma
    Take me home down country roads
