Calipso
John Denver Lyrics


The sun is slowly fading in the western sky
Sometimes it takes forever the day to end
Sometimes it takes a lifetime
Sometimes I think I'll never see the sun again

There's a heavy fog between me and the mountains
It's enough to make a grown man sit and cry
It's enough to make you wonder
It's enough to make the world roll up and die
I think it's kind of interesting the way things get to be
The way the people work with their machines
Serenity's a long time coming to me
In fact I don't believe I know what it means

In the east a shaded moon is hanging lazily
I do believe I saw the old man smile
I do believe I did
I do believe he's been laughing all the while

I think it's kind of interesting the way things get to be
The way the people work with their machines
Serenity's a long time coming to me
In fact I don't believe I know what it means
Anymore

The sun is slowly fading in the western sky
Sometimes it takes forever the day to end
Sometimes it takes a lifetime
Sometimes I think I'll never see the sun again
The sun again, sun again woo oo oo.

To sail on a dream on a crystal clear ocean
To ride on the crest of a wild raging storm
To work in the service of life and living
In search of the answers to the questions unknown
To be part of the movement and part of the growing
Part of beginning to understand
Aye Calypso the places you've been to
The things that you've shown us
The stories you tell
Aye Calypso, I sing to your spirit
The men who have served you so long and so well
Like the dolphin who guides you, you bring us beside you
To light up the darkness and show us the way
For though we are strangers in your silent world
To live on the land we must learn from the sea
To be true as the tide and free as a wind swell
Joyful and loving in letting it be
Aye Calypso the places you've been to
The things that you've shown us
The stories you tell
Aye Calypso, I sing to your spirit
The men who have served you so long and so well
Aye Calypso the places you've been to
The things that you've shown us
The stories you tell
Aye Calypso, I sing to your spirit
The men who have served you so long and so well

Anyone else feel like they're late for their voyage? Like the ship is just waiting for you? Just me? Mk. PS: he was a legend.

First time I heard this song and all I could picture in my head was a ship taking sail

I will never get tired of John Denver's perfect voice, we all lost a brilliant soul when he passed. Rest in peace John.

@craig giuffre I agree, he had so much more music inside him to share with the world. He had it tough in the music world, but there are some of us that respect and love his work. Gone but never forgotten.
