Boy From the Country  John Denver

BOY FROM THE COUNTRY (Michael Murphy) (c) 1969
Performed by John Denver
: D Dmaj7 D6 D : (played at 7th fret (like a G progression))
Because he [D]calls the forest "Brother"
Because he [A]calls the Earth his [D]mother
They drove him [G]out into the [D]rain
Some [A]people even said that the boy from the country was [D]insane
Because he spoke to the fish in the creek
He tried to tell us that the animals could speak
And who knows? perhaps they do
How do you know they don't just because they've never spoken to you?
CHORUS:
[A]Boy from the country
Left his home when he was [D]young
A (n.c.)
Boy from the country
He loves the [D]sun.
He tried to tell us that we should love the land
We just turned our heads and laughed; you see we did not understand
Sometimes I think the boy from the country is the only one who sees
'cause the boy from the country doesn't want to see the forest for the
trees.
