Three Days of Peace and Music: lyricspam and request

Because he called the forest brother,
Because he called the Earth his mother
they drove him out into the rain;
some people even said
that the boy from the country was insane.

Because he spoke to 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?

Boy from the country, left his home when he was young
Boy from the country, he loves the sun

He tried to tell us that we should love the land,
but we just turned our heads and laughed
You see, we did not understand

Sometimes I think that 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.

Boy from the country, he left his home when he was young
Boy from the country, he loves the sun


If anyone can get me, or tell me where to get, the mp3 of the live version of this, you'll have all my thanks and gushing gratitude.

That's the live version from An Evening With John Denver. It's on the LP version. The idiots at the record company left the song off the CD version. Grr. songdog sent me the studio version, but the live one is so much better. No annoying studio musicians and backing vocalists. Just voice and guitar. lovely. It's really one of the most beautiful songs I've ever heard.


ETA: I got it from iTunes! A thousand thank-yous to i_harobed! Does anyone know how to turn an iTunes song into an mp3 so I can listen to it on Winamp?
