Annie’s Song — This Friday’s Song

This Friday’s song is “Annie’s Song” by John Denver. This is another song that will be fifty years old this year. Yes, that’s fifty as in five zero (50), half a century my friends. The song was released as the lead single from Denver’s eighth studio album Back Home Again. It was his second number-one song in the United States, occupying that spot for two weeks in July 1974.

There are lots of great love songs that will touch your heart. I have shared many that I like here. That said, if I had to pick one that, in four simple lines, expresses how I feel about my wife Teresa “Annie’s Song” is it.

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.

Songwriters: John Denver

I shared links for two versions of the song. The first is the official audio version from the original album released in 1974. The second is a live performance from The Wildlife Concert in 1995. Both are great. It is interesting to see how Denver’s voice matured. Hope you enjoy “Annie’s Song” by John Denver.
