John Denver Chords Collection

August 24th, 2016 - I've finally begun to update this page on a regular basis, working together with my friend Boot Leg to sort out the chords for the songs. You can write to ffpr@qq.com to get in touch with him.

This list is in chronological order. I've not listed the live albums and "greatest" compilation albums, as they don't contain many new stuffs, and most songs from them can also be found on studio albums. If you're not sure which album the song you're looking for is from, try using "Ctrl + F" to find it.

I made this page to create a collection of John Denver chords as complete and accurate as possible. It's still under construction by now. If you want to request the chords to a particular song that is still unavailable on this page, feel free to post a request in our forum.

The chords marked with an asterisk "*" are taken from John's official songbooks: JD Anthology, The Authentic Guitar Style of JD, Pete Huttlinger's Learn to Play Like JD Series, etc. The chords marked with two asterisks "**" were transcribed by other people and I've confirmed accurate, but not from official sources. The rest were all transcribed either by Boot Leg or by myself.

Please note that even official songbooks may also have a lot of chords wrong. I'm keeping the chords on this page as accurate as possible.

For complete collection of John Denver lyrics, please visit The World Family of John Denver or John Denver on LyricWikia. Most of the lyrics here on this page are taken from those two websites.

The page is updated every few days, so please be sure you don't forget to refresh the page everytime you visit.

I've added the "forum" module to this website: http://ddpro.ucoz.com/forum/. You can discuss everything about John Denver in the forum's "John Denver Music" section.

To leave a comment on my website, please visit the Guestbook. For a collection of John's concert setlists, please visit this page on my website.

Please forward any addition or correction to ddpro@163.com or ffpr@qq.com. You can also post in the site forum's "corrections and suggestions" board here. Thanks!
