Whispering Jesse Lyrics

Artist: John Denver
Album: Celebration Of Life

This song appears on six albums, and was first released on the Higher Ground Album, and has also been released on the A Portrait and The John Denver Collection - Take Me Home, Country Roads Albums. It was rerecorded on the Love Again and A Celebration of Life Albums. A live version also appears on The Wildlife Concert Album.

I often have wandered in deep contemplation
It seems that the mind runs wild when youre all alone
The way that it could be
The way that it should be
Things Id do differently if I could do them again

Ive always loved spring time, the passing of winter
The green of the new leaves and life goin on
The promise of morning
The long days of summer
Warm nights of loving her beneath the bright stars

Im just an old cowboy from high Colorado
Too old to ride anymore, too blind to see
I sleep in the city now
Away from the mountains
Away from the cabin we always called home

I dream I left there
On an old Palomino
Whispering Jesse rode right by my side
I long to hold her
To hear her soft breathing
The touch of her cool hands on my fevered brow

Whispering Jesse still rides in the mountains
Still sings in the canyons
Still lives in my heart

Hi dear, I think that John was a genius, the lyrics of his song was so much special and sentimental and also the music of most of his songs.

For some unexplained reason I have only today discovered this beautiful song written by John. I have most of his albums but for some unknown reason I seem to have missed hearing it, though it seems it is on 6 of his albums. One of his most beautiful songs, both in melody and lyric, a classic in my opinion. Quite why it isn't better known I don't know. Lovely visual videos too on YouTube that fit the lyric content perfectly.It is a song I shall now play over and over again and recommend it to others as well. Gone but certainly not forgotten, he was a genius with words and melodies.
