This is an oldie but goodie that appeared on John Denver's Rhymes and Reasons album in 1969. In those days he would write two or three songs, and then seek out material by other artists that he respected and enjoyed (the Beatles were amongst his favorites) in order to fill out the album because he felt he wasn't a good enough songwriter to record an album with only his songs.

Ironically, his Greatest Hits album in 1973 was comprised of mostly his songs (the other songs such as Country Roads were collaborative efforts within his band). An article in a music magazine I read in 1973 said of the GH album "so much for the notion that he couldnt fill an album of his own material." In later albums, he did write most of the songs, but still chose to do covers because he enjoyed many other artists music and numbered those people as friends of his. I believe James Taylor was one (Fire and Rain, Carolina In My Mind).

These are images I found on the internet from various sites with the "daydream" or "dream" theme, to give it a feel of what the thought process might be like. The song is based on a person to person subject obviously, however people daydream about anything. Enjoy!
