Take
Take Me Home, Country Roads is a song originally performed by John Denver, and has proven to be a popular song, having been covered by various artists.

The song was performed by Mickey Mouse and his friends, as well as the Fun Songs kids, in the video Campout at Walt Disney World. Their version of the song is more peppy and upbeat, in contrast to John Denver's original slightly slow and mellow version, though the lyrics remain the same.

The song was also heavily used in the 1995 Studio Ghibli film Whisper of the Heart, mainly appearing in scenes where Shizuku translates the song to Japanese for her school's chorus club.

Lyrics

Almost Heaven, West Virgina
Blue Ridge Mountains, Shenandoah River
Life is old there, older than the trees
Younger than the mountains, blowing like a breeze

Country roads, take me home
To the place I belong
West Virginia, mountain mama
Take me home, country roads

All my memories gather round her
Miner's lady, stranger to blue water
Dark and dusty, painted on the sky
Misty taste of moonshine, teardrop in my eye

Country roads, take me home
To the place I belong
West Virginia, mountain mama
Take me home, country roads

I hear her voice in the morning hour, she calls me
The radio reminds me of my home far away
And driving down the road, I get a feeling that I should have been home yesterday
Yesterday

Country roads, take me home
To the place I belong
West Virginia, mountain mama
Take me home, country roads

Country roads, take me home
To the place I belong
West Virginia, mountain mama
Take me home, country roads

Take me home, country roads
Take me home, country roads
