For me, pretty much anything by John Denver, CS&N, Gordon Lightfoot, and Dan Fogelberg.
Well... I don't listen to the lyrics for most songs anyway.. I just like the grooves.
Some awesome contributions in this thread, much appreciated!
Here is another "nature" song that I really like.
Great song; it was written by Irving Berlin for a Broadway musical back in the 20's, but was adapted by Western Swing bands later on and is sort of a country standard now.
In 1977-78, my College roommate and I used to hangout in with 4 girls ( Erie, PA) that lived together in a big apt. near a pizza joint, and a few bars. Nice neighborhood block.
We would 'bodyguard ' them when walking outside at night, and they'd cook us dinner..., and we'd play records ( and I played guitar) and hang out-
Dan Fogelberg and Jackson Browne ( and of course all the other '70's singers mentioned) were at the top of the list!
another wildwood flower
Hey, that's no Wildwood Flower. I checked YT, and the only recording they have of Welch doing that song is a brief all guitar version while tuning up. Here's a consolation prize;
Like him or not, this is a great song about the mountains. Always reminds me of Colorado:
Hope you're doing well Allen!
Love this one.. the heat.. you can feel it.
I used to think of "In Tall Buildings" by John Hartford as I was heading to work
"So it's goodbye to the sunshine
Goodbye to the dew
Goodbye to the flowers
And goodbye to you
I'm off to the subway
I must not be late
I'm going to work in tall buildings"
"Can't you feel those hills around you?"
Another version of Mother Nature's Son - likely my favorite
Very nice thank you! I was in a band several years back and when we played this song the dance floors would always get packed here in Texas. Great tune! Rodney Crowell is a treasure down here.
Surprised this one hasn't been mentioned:
They do if you're fishin' with dynamite.
I miss Leon. Took me awhile to remember this one but I'm glad I did, its a classic.
Enjoy going back to the island.
