    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. :confused:

    Some awesome contributions in this thread, much appreciated!

    Here is another "nature" song that I really like.



    Peace ya'll...

    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

    [/QUOTE]



    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!

    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"

    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.
