Take Me Home: An Autobiography by John DenverIn a career that has spanned twenty-five years, John Denver has earned international acclaim as a singer, songwriter, actor, and environmental activist. Songs like Take Me Home, Country Roads, Rocky Mountain High, and Annies Song have entered the canon of universal anthems, but less than three decades ago, John Denver was a young man with little more than a fine voice, a guitar, and a dream. Growing up in a conservative military family, he was not expected to drop out of college and head to Los Angeles, where the music scene was flourishing. Nor was he expected to succeed. In Take Me Home, John Denver chronicles the experiences that shaped his life, while unraveling the rich, inner journey of a shy Midwestern boy whose uneasy partnership with fame has been one of the defining forces of his first fifty years. With candor and wit, John writes about his childhood, the experience of hitting L.A. as the Sixties roared into full swing, his first breaks, his years with the Mitchell Trio, his first songwriting success with Leaving on a Jet Plane, and finally a career that made his a global household name. He also explores his relationships with the women in his life - particularly his first wife, Annie Martell, and his second wife, Cassandra Delaney - as well as his parents, his children, his partners through his life, and his friends. Honest, insightful and rich in anecdotes that only a natural-born storyteller could tell so well, Take Me Home is a highly charged and fascinating book from beginning to end. Its like spending a couple of days with a good friend.

What song are you using that's not super sappy? I refuse to sway back and forth with my dad for minutes to some horrible country song about daddies and their daughters, or anything with the word "butterfly" in it. I couldn't agree with you more! I'm leaving it upto my dad and I'm sure he'll choose a classic rock song of some sort. It would be so awkward for me to dance with my dad to Butterfly Kisses or something similar.
