The Boy From The Country

Because he called the forest brother,

Because he called the earth his mother,

They drove him out into the rain.

Some people even said

The boy from the country was insane.


The boy from the country left his home when he was young.

The boy from the country, he loved the sun.

You know he spoke to the fish in the creek

He tried to tell us that the animals could speak.

And who knows, perhaps they do.

How do you know they don't,

Just because they've never spoken to you?


John Denver
