John Denver Quiz

Come and listen to the story of a journey once begun
Of a people and their plenty and their season in the sun
And how they gave themselves to symbols and things that they could hold
Living lives in desperation, in the fear of letting go

It amazes me, and I know the wind will surely someday blow it all away
It amazes me, and I'm so very grateful that you made the world this way


1 We wouldn't dare to ask you a list of all the songs where John plays guitar, but what about the songs John plays the piano? How many songs can you mention?
2 This picture is about 20 years old. It shows John playing with one of the members of his band at the time. Could you give a list of members of his band in that period?
3 John starred in a few movies. We haven't paid much attention on our pages about these movies, but we will do so at some time or another. In the mean time you can win points by telling the names of people who co-starred with John.
4 John usually sings in English. On some occasions even that is not so sure. Do you know any other languages John ever sung in?
