Almost heaven West Virginia
Blue Ridge Mountains Shenandoah river
Life is old there older than the trees
Younger than the mountains blowin' like a breeze

Country roads take me home
To the place I belove
West Virginia mountain momma
Take me home country roads

All my memories gather round her
Miner's lady stranger to blue water
Dark and dusty painted on the sky
Misty taste of moonshine teardrops in my eyes

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


I hear a voice in the morning hour as she calls me
The radio reminds me of my home far away
Drivin' down the road I get a feelin'
That I should have home yesterday yesterday

Country roads take me home

To the place I belong
West Virginia mountain momma
Take me home country roads

Country roads take me home
To the place I belove
West Virginia mountain momma
Take me home country roads

West Virginia mountain momma
Take me home country roads

West Virginia mountain momma
Take me home country roads

Take me home country roads
Take me home country roads
