Fly Away” is a lovely rendition of a lovely song.  It was originally written and performed by John Denver featuring vocals by Olivia Newton-John in 1975. “Fly Away” peaked at number 13 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart and spent two weeks atop the adult contemporary chart in early 1976, Denver’s sixth number one on this chart. “Fly Away” also peaked at number 12 on the country chart.  The song is an ode to longing for simpler times and a simpler way of life.
