Back Home Again (4:44)

Cover of Greatest Hits

From Greatest Hits and 89 other releases

“Back Home Again” is the title of a popular song written and performed by the American singer-songwriter John Denver. Released as a single from his album of the same name in 1974, “Back Home Again” peaked at #5 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart in November of that year. It was Denver’s fifth Top 10 hit on the pop chart. In addition, the song topped both the adult contemporary chart (for two weeks) as well as the country music chart (for one week). The single was certified a gold record by the RIAA. The song won a CMA Award for Denver in 1975 in the category “Song of the Year”; he was also named “Entertainer of the Year” at the same ceremony, prompting country pop singer Charlie Rich to light the envelope on fire after reading that Denver had won in an apparent insult to Denver’s musical style and image.

There's a storm across the valley, clouds are rollin' in
The afternoon is heavy on your shoulders.
There's a truck out on the four lane, a mile or more away
The whinin' of his wheels just makes it colder.

    Great talent - of course, it's a well known fact that lots of extraordinarily talented people were born in December 1943!!!
