      About "Wild Mountain Skies"

      Lyrics for John Denver - "Wild Mountain Skies"

      He was born in the Bitterroot Valley in the early morning rain
      Wild geese over the water heading north and home again
      Bringing a warm wind from the south
      Bringing the first taste of the spring
      His mother took him to her breast and softly she did sing

      Oh Montana, give this child a home
      Give him the love of a good family and a woman of his own
      Give him a fire in his heart, give him a light in his eyes
      Give him the wild wind for a brother and the wild Montana skies

      His mother died that summer and he never learned to cry
      He never knew his father and he never did ask why
      He never knew the answers that would make an easy way
      But he learned to know the wilderness and to be a man that way

      His mother's brother took him in to family and his home
      Gave him a hand that he could lean on and a strength to call his own
      And he learned to be a farmer and he learned to love the land
      And he learned to read the seasons and he learned to make a stand

      Oh Montana, give this child a home
      Give him the love of a good family and a woman of his own
      Give him a fire in his heart, give him a light in his eyes
      Give him the wild wind for a brother and the wild Montana skies

      On the eve of his 21st birthday he set out on his own
      He was 30 years and running when he found his way back home
      Riding a storm across the mountains and an aching in his heart
      Said he came to turn the pages and to make a brand new start

      Now he never told a story of the time that he was gone
      Some say he was a lawyer, some say he was a John
      There was something in the city that he said he couldn't breathe
      And there was something in the country that he said he couldn't leave

      Oh Montana, give this child a home
      Give him the love of a good family and a woman of his own
      Give him a fire in his heart, give him a light in his eyes
      Give him the wild wind for a brother and the wild Montana skies

      Now some say he was crazy and they're glad that he is gone
      But some of us miss him and we'll try to carry on
      Giving a voice to the forest, giving a voice to the dawn
      Giving a voice to the wilderness and the land that he lived on

      Oh Montana, give this child a home
      Give him the love of a good family and a woman of his own
      Give him a fire in his heart, give him a light in his eyes
      Give him the wild wind for a brother and the wild Montana skies

      Oh Montana, give this child a home
      Give him the love of a good family and a woman of his own
      Give him a fire in his heart, give him a light in his eyes
      Give him the wild wind for a brother and the wild Montana skies
