An Evening with John Denver Album

Poems, Prayers and Promises Lyrics John Denver


John Denver - Poems, Prayers and Promises Songtext

I've been lately thinking about my life's time
Days they pass so quickly now, the nights are seldom long

all the things I've done and how it's been,
time around me whispers when it's cold.

and I can't help believin' in my own mind
The changes somehow frightens me, still I have to smile

I know I'm gonna hate to see it end.
it turns me on to think of growing old.

I've seen a lot of sunshine slept out in the rain
It's tho' my life's been good to me there's still so much to do

spent a night or two all on my own
so many things my mind has never known

I've known my lady's pleasures had myself some friends
I'd like to raise a fam'ly I'd like to sail away

spent a time or two in my own home.
dance across the mountains on the moon.

Ref.) I have to say it now it's been good life all in all,
it's really fine to have a chance to hang around.
and lie there by the fire and watch the evening tire,
while all my friends and my old lady sit and pass a pipe around
and talk of poems and prayers and promises
and things that we believe in, how sweet it is to love someone,
how right it is to care, how long it's been since yesterday
what about tomorrow and what about our dreams
and all the memories we share,
