Continuing my song writing mood, this one is NOT based on any actual song, but is an attempt to actually write a fresh Country/Western-kind of song.

I was totally in awe of, loved, and inspired by the style of the legendary John Denver ( – remember Country Road?).

Leave it to you to sing along if you can. 🙂

Young at heart, yeah
Young at heart –
he was always
Young at heart.
Kind of bold, ‘n’
kind of smart –
sear-ching for love.
Yeah, sear-ching for love.
Oo yeah yeah yeah,
Young at heart!

One day he just
saw her and
his feet got swe-hept
of the land.
They fell in love.
Yeah, fell in love!

The days spent talking,
the nights were warm,
whenever they met,
there came a storm.
She loved him too.
Yeah, loved him too.
Oo yeah yeah yeah,
loved him too!

Young at heart, yeah
Young at heart –
he was always
Young at heart.
Kind of bold, ‘n’
kind of smart –
Oo yeah yeah yeah,
Young at heart!

They got married,
and they settled down,
their house was in a
little town.
They had a son.
Yeah, had a son!

The son grew up
and he loved him so,
he taught him lessons,
he helped him grow.
He loved his son.
Oh! he loved him so!

Oo yeah yeah yeah,
loved him too!

The day came when he
be-came old,
his body got weak,
but he still was bold –
And young at heart
(ru-ru) young at heart!

Young at heart, yeah
Young at heart –
he was always
Young at heart.
Kind of bold, ‘n’
kind of smart –

Oo yeah yeah yeah –
And he died sooooo!
