Please, why are you putting"nutsack" in all the songs?

Excuse me, that's theway John Denver wrote them.

No he didn't.

John Denverfought his entire career

to perform and recordhis songs

the way heactually wrote them.


The record companiesmade him soften up his lyrics.

So his songs would bemore commercial!

Oh, John!



The original lyricsto his songs

were all about truthand beauty and nature.

But the only thing differentabout the original lyrics

is that a bunch ofthe nouns are nutsack.
