Annie's Song


Songwriter/Performer: John Denver
Category: 70s

Annie's Song is one of John Denver's most recognizable hits, which he wrote in honor of his wife Annie Martell Denver. According to John, the song came together in about 10 minutes while he rode up a ski lift in Colorado after having just skied down a difficult run. He was overwhelmed by the exhilaration of the experience and his beautiful surroundings and was thus inspired to write about his wife.

Denver dedicated his 1974 album Back Home Again (which contained this ballad) to his wife, in a tender tribute after having gone through some rough times together.

LYRICS

You fill up me senses like a night in a forest
Like the mountains in springtime, like a walk in the rain
Like a storm in the desert, like a sleepy blue ocean
You fill up my senses come fill me again.

Come let me love you, let me give my life to you
Let me drown in your laughter, let me die in your arms
Let me lay down beside you, let me always be with you
Come let me love you, come love me again.

INSTRUMENTAL VERSE

...Let me give my life to you
Come let me love you, come love me again.

You fill up my senses like a night in a forest
Like the mountains in springtime, like a walk in the rain
Like a storm in the desert, like a sleepy blue ocean
You fill up my senses, come fill me again.
