I've turned my 4th and 5th graders into folk music nerds and I love it!
My 5th graders had a free sing day and instantly asked for the John Denver songs we sang in 4th grade. So I decided it was time to find some more songs by John Denver.
This song was one that I somehow missed in my collection of John Denver music. Finding the story behind the song (written by Bill Danoff) has been a challenge but I've found that this song is a good exercise for my advanced students in interpreting abstract poetic lyrics.
