For A Song

Round Robin Challenge for Saturday, October 9, 2010

“Pick a song you like, and give us your photographic interpretation of all or part of that song’s lyrics. You can either include the relevant section of the lyrics or, for a really well-known song, ask people to guess what you’re illustrating.”

Cool, An’ Green, An’ Shady

Words and music by John Denver and Joe Henry

Saturdays, holidays, easy afternoons
Lazy days, summer days, nothing much to do…

*

*

Rainy days are better days, for hanging out inside…
*
*

*
*

Grainy days and city ways, make me wanna hide

*

*

Someplace, cool, and green, and shady…..

*

*

*

*

Find yourself a piece of grassy ground
Lay down, close your eyes
Find yourself and maybe lose yourself
While your free spirit flies

*

*

*

*

August skies, lullabys, promises to keep
Dandelions and twisting vines, Clover at your feet
Memories of Aspen leaves, trembling on the wind
Honeybees and fantasies

*

*

*

*

Where to start again
Someplace cool and green and shady

*

*

*

*
Cool…..and green…..and shady…..
*
*

*

*

Here’s a link to YouTube, in case you’d like to hear the song!

And don’t forget to go visit the other Robins and see what songs they’ve illustrated!

  1. You did a great job illustrating the song—I’m wishing for that “cool and green and shady” spot!

  2. Love it! Well done Ruth. Love the shot of you and you found a lot of great green cool shady spots!

  3. Fun post with great photos! Is it okay that I just hummed along?

  4. Well, that is flat-out wonderful! Beautiful, perfect pictures for this song! It must be late John Denver, because my collect roommate had all his early albums and I don’t know this song. Thanks!

  5. Cool!

    and Green!

    and even shady too!

    Well done!

  6. I’m not familiar with this song, but the pictures went with it perfectly. That final picture of the bench in the forest is beautiful!

  7. So pretty! What an amazing post!
