Almost heaven, West Virginia
Shenandoah River,
Older than the trees
Blowin' like the breeze
To the place I belong
Take me home, country roads
All my memories gathered 'round her
Dark and dusty, painted on the sky
Teardrops in my eye
I hear her voice
The radio reminds me of my home far away
That I should have been home yesterday, yesterday
[Chorus:Repeat x2]
Take me home, now country roads
