Artist's Description

John Denver was a special singer-songwriter. His music had a way of touching the heart and soul of many people, including me. He died, tragically, in a single seat airplane off the coast of Monterey, CA in 1997.

I shot this photo in Rocky Mountain National Park, Colorado, one year, and everytime I look at it, it reminds me of John’s song, “Back Home Again.” I thought I would share it with you. His words and music created a special light in this world that still shines brightly today.

Back Home Again

There’s a storm across the valley,
clouds are rollin’ in
the afternoon is heavy on your shoulders
There’s a truck out on the four lane,
a mile or more away
the whinin’ of his wheels just makes it colder.

He’s an hour away from ridin’
on your prayers up in the sky.
and ten days on the road are barely gone.
There’s a fire softly burning;
supper’s on the stove
it’s the light in your eyes that makes him warm.

Hey, it’s good to be back home again
Sometimes this old farm
feels like a long lost friend
Yes, ‘n, hey it’s good to be back home again

There’s all the news to tell him:
how’d you spend your time?
And what’s the latest thing the neighbors say
and your mother called last friday;
“Sunshine” made her cry
and you felt the baby move just yesterday.

Hey, it’s good to be back home again
Sometimes this old farm
feels like a long lost friend
Yes, ‘n, hey it’s good to be back home again

Oh, the time that I can lay this tired old body down
and feel your fingers feather soft upon me
the kisses that I live for, the love that lights my way
the happiness that livin’ with you brings me.

It’s the sweetest thing I know of,
just spending time with you
it’s the little things that make a house a home.
Like a fire softly burning
and supper on the stove.
And the light in your eyes that makes me warm.

Hey, it’s good to be back home again
Sometimes this old farm
feels like a long lost friend
Yes, ‘n, hey it’s good to be back home again
Hey, it’s good to be back home again
Sometimes this old farm
feels like a long lost friend
hey it’s good to be back home again
Said hey it’s good to be back home again
