“Back Home Again” is the title of a popular song written and performed by the American singer-songwriter John Denver. Released as a single from his album of the same name in 1974, “Back Home Again” peaked at number five on the Billboard Hot 100 chart in November of that year; it was Denver’s fifth Top 10 hit on the pop chart. “Back Home Again” topped the adult contemporary chart for two weeks. The single was the first of three number ones on the country music chart where it stayed for a single week.The single was certified a gold record by the RIAA. The song won a CMA Award for Denver in 1975 in the category “Song of the Year”; he was also named “Entertainer of the Year” at the same ceremony, prompting country pop singer Charlie Rich to light the envelope on fire after reading that Denver had won—in an apparent insult to Denver’s musical style and image.

John Denver – Back Home Again lyrics

[Verse 1]
There’s a storm across the valley
Clouds are rolling in
The afternoon is heavy
On your shoulders
There’s a truck out on the four lane
A mile or more away
And the whining of his wheels
Just makes it colder

[Verse 2]
He’s an hour away from riding
On your prayers up in the sky
And ten days on the road
Are barely gone
There’s a fire softly burning
Supper’s on the stove
It’s the light in your eyes
That makes him warm

[Chorus]
Hey, it’s good to be back home again
Sometimes this old farm
Feels like a long lost friend
Yes, and hey, it’s good to be back home again
[Verse 3]
There’s all the news to tell him
How’d you spend your time
What’s the latest thing the neighbors say
And your mother called last Friday
Sunshine made her cry
You felt the baby move just yesterday

[Chorus]
Hey, it’s good to be back home again, yes it is
Sometimes this old farm
Feels like a long lost friend
Yes, and hey, it’s good to be back home again

[Bridge]
And all the time that I can lay this tired, old body down
To feel your fingers feather soft upon me
The kisses that I live for
The love that lights my way
The happiness that living with you brings me

[Verse 4]
It’s the sweetest thing I know of
Just spending time with you
It’s the little things that make a house a home
Like a fire softly burning, supper’s on the stove
The light in your eyes that makes me warm
[Chorus]
Hey, it’s good to be back home again
Sometimes this old farm
Feels like a long lost friend
Yes, and hey, it’s good to be back home again

Hey, it’s good to be back home again, oh it is
Sometimes this old farm
Feels like a long lost friend
Hey, it’s good to be back home again
I said hey, it’s good to be back home again
