Spirit Lyrics

Artist: John Denver
Album: Country Roads Collection

This song appears on three albums, and was first released on the Windsong album, and also on the The Country Roads Collection. It has also been released on the Live In London album, as a live track.

His spirit joined and so was formed
Ten thousand years ago
Between the swan and Hercules
Where even dark clouds glow

To live with grace, to ride the swell
To yet be strong of will
To love the wind, to learn its song
And empty space to fill

Apollo taught me to rhyme
Orpheus taught me to play
Andromeda cast down her sign
And vega lights my way

Smoke rings in a galaxy
An endless flight through time
Lyra gave her harp to him
And left him free to climb

A winters journey from the moon
To reach the summer sun
To rise again, to sing for you
A song thats yet unsung

Apollo taught me to rhyme
Orpheus taught me to play
Andromeda cast down her sign
And vega lights my way

His spirit joined and so was formed
Ten thousand years ago
Between the swan and Hercules
Where even dark clouds glow

To live with grace, to ride the swell
To yet be strong of will
To love the wind, to learn her song
And empty space to fill

I first heard this on the Windsong album back in '75. Never forgot it!I feel it's one of his best arrangements and lyrics. You can't not be excited by his word pictures and the fast-paced backup. WOW!!!
