Starwood In Aspen
John Denver

John Denver
I have had several requests for this song, so I decided to figure
it out.  I had worked on it a little before, but finished it off
tonight.  It's a tribute to the then-undeveloped Starwood section
of Aspen, where John designed and built his dream house.

play intro It's a long way from L.A. to Denver It's a long time to hang in the sky It's along way home to Starwood in Aspen A sweet Rocky Mountain paradise Oh my sweet Rocky Mountain paradise
Oh springtime is rollin' 'round slowly Gray skies are bringin' me down I can't remember when I've ever been so lonely I forgot what it's like to be home Can't remember what it's like to be home
I think on my lady's sweet memories I think on my children's sweet smiles I think on my home to Starwood in Aspen All my friends and the snow-covered hills Oh my friends are the snow-covered hills
Can I tell you I'm happy to be here To share and consider this time For I see here the shadows of changes And a feeling of new friends to find And I see here some new friends to find
It's a long way from this place to Denver It's a long time to hang in the sky It's along way home to Starwood in Aspen My sweet Rocky Mountain paradise Oh my sweet Rocky Mountain paradise play ending
