John denver guitar chords and lyrics
Henry John Deutschendorf Jr. was born on New Year’s Eve 1943, in Roswell, New Mexico, to Captain (later LTC) Henry John “Dutch” Deutschendorf Sr. (April 15, 1920 – March 15, 1982), a United States Army Air Forces pilot stationed at Roswell AAF and his wife, Erma Louise (née Swope) (August 7, 1922 – January 17, 2010). Years later, as a Lieutenant Colonel in the U. S. Air Force, Deutschendorf Sr. would set three speed records in the B-58 Hustler bomber and earn a place in the Air Force Hall of Fame. He met and married his “Oklahoma Sweetheart”. In his autobiography, Take Me Home, Denver described his life as the eldest son of a family shaped by a stern father who could not show his love for his children.
