There are two versions of this song, first, the one included on the 1974 album Back Home Again. Then there is the very popular live version released in 1975 (recorded in 1974). The live version went to #1 on the Hot 100. It’s immensely catchy and remains very popular to this day. It was one of six songs in 1975 to top the country and pop charts. It was actually written by one of John Denver’s band members (the guy on fiddle). John Denver was actually pretty awesome… known mostly as a folk/country singer, he was beloved across America (and genres) and was one of its best-selling artists.
