    Default country road lyrics help

    Can someone explain to me the lyrics?

    Almost heaven, West Virginia(why is the singer saying heaven? Did he die?)
    Blue Ridge Mountains, Shenandoah River
    Life is old there, older than the trees (Does life refering to his life because he died?)
    Younger than the mountains (Does this mean his life was younger than the mountains?)
    blowing like breeze (His life was so fast like the breeze? came and went?)
    Country road take me home to the place I belong
    West Virginia mountain mama (Why is he calling the mountain his mom?)
    Take me home country road

    All my memories gather round her(Why do all his memories gather round her?)
    Miner's lady, stranger to blue water ( What is miner?Who's lady? what stranger?)
    Dark and dusty painted on the sky (His memories were dark and dusty? Why were they painted)
    Misty taste of moon shine
    Teardrop in my eye

    I hear her voice in the morning hours she calls me
    The radio reminds me of my home far away (is the radio in the car?)
    And driving down the road I get a feeling
    That I should have been home yesterday (Does this mean someone in his family died so the mountain mama were trying to tell him so he got a feelin that he should have been home yesterday to see his family one last time?)
    Take me home country roads
    Take me home country roads

    It's not about death or dying, but it is about going home. Have you never wanted to go home?

    I completely agree with Ron.

    Rather than trying to understand each line, think instead of how you would feel if you lived far away from where you grew up. Now you are driving home and remembering all the things you loved about where you grew up. What words would you choose?
