    I second that emotion. When I heard “Country Roads” on my car radio while driving down my Ohio street I get a tear in my eye and a lump in my throat. Fantastic place to grow up, particularly in the coal-mining town of Monongah. Great to sit in Section 105 of Mountaineer Field to watch a football game, if the coronavirus will ever let that happen again, and to sing “Country Roads” with 60,000 of my friends after a WVU victory. Bless you, John Denver! You give me a Rocky Mountain high that shoots me into Almost Heaven!

    I was stationed at March AFB, CA in the Spring of  1971 when I first hear Country Roads.

    I was preparing my car for a trip to Barksdale AFB, LA to attend the Academy when the song began playing on the radio.  It’s not something West Virginians soon forget.

    When did you grow up in Monongah? I have a friend who is a year older than me that graduated in 1973.

    He is a football coach at Jefferson and was friends with Nick.
