“Annie’s Song” (You fill up my senses...)- a beautiful love song that compares his love for his wife to the beauties of nature such as a night in the forest, the mountains in springtime, a walk in the rain, a storm in the dessert, a sleepy blue ocean
“Rocky Mountain High”-a song about a man who left behind his old life and while everything is not all roses he now enjoys the beautiful Colorado mountains and being high on life
“Thank God I’m a Country Boy”- a song about the virtues of a simple life and being grateful with what you have whether you understand the great mysteries of life or not

“Calypso”- a song written in tribute to Jacques Cousteau, a man who explored the beauties and wonders of the ocean and brought them all into our living rooms on TV
“Fly Away”-sung with Olivia Newton-John, a song about a sad girl whose dreams have crumbled and is lonely and who just wants to fly away from her life and everything
“This Old Guitar”-a song about what his music has meant to him, bringing him love, laughter, friendship and his living, and bringing others cheer and keeping him from loneliness
