I'll have my laptop with me and will get everyone updated probably the day after my Surgury when I'm more Corrherent*lol* This is such a Beautiful Song of John Denver. I hope You All enjoy it... This song was written when I was in 8th Grade*lol* Sorry for the Noise in the background it's my Oxygen Concentrator*lol* Even Tho I DON"T Smoke I found out I have COPD... my Lungs Don't fully expand to where they are supposed to, Even with getting Phumonia and Bronchitis all the time so I have to wear Oxygen all the time..

"Fly Away" is a 1975 song written and performed by John Denver, with Olivia Newton-John (uncredited) on backup vocals. Released as a single from the Windsong album, "Fly Away" peaked at number thirteen on the Billboard Hot 100 chart and spent two weeks atop the adult contemporary chart in early-1976, Denver's sixth number one on this chart. "Fly Away" also peaked at number twelve on the country chart.

The song is an ode to longing for simpler times and a simpler way of life. Rolling Stone magazine remarks, "At this point, John Denver albums are as numerous as potted plants in the apartments of these urbanites, and both are symptoms of the same longing. The singer acknowledges his average listener in 'Fly Away'."

Henry John Deutschendorf, Jr. (December 31, 1943 – October 12, 1997), known professionally as John Denver, was an American singer/songwriter, activist, and humanitarian. After traveling and living in numerous locations while growing up in his military family, Denver began his music career in folk music groups in the late 1960s. His greatest commercial success was as a solo singer. Throughout his life Denver recorded and released approximately 300 songs, about 200 of which he composed. He performed primarily with an acoustic guitar and sang about his joy in nature, his enthusiasm for music, and relationship trials.

On October 12, 1997 singer, songwriter, and actor John Denver was killed when he crashed the Long-EZ aircraft he was piloting after it ran out of fuel just off the coast at Pacific Grove, CA. Denver apparently lost control of the aircraft while attempting to manipulate the fuel selector handle. Denver had recently purchased the aircraft and had about a half-hour orientation flight the day before the accident,He was the ONLY one on board.

Beautiful!! Good Luck with your knee replacement! May the Good Lord guide your surgeon's hands. Knees are a tough one, but do the rehab and push through it. You'll feel so much better after.

What a wonderful sing, hon. It's so great to hear you singing so beautifully, as always. The oxygen thing doesn't make any sound over your gorgeous vocals.

Another one for my playlist of favorites!! Standing and clapping!! Love it!!
