Henry John Deutschendorf Jr. also known as John Denver was one of the most popular folk music stars of the 90s. Some of his incredible works include “Take Me Home, Country Roads”, “Leavin’ on a Jet plane.” However, the lyrics to “leavin’ on a jet plane” quotes the entertainer saying goodbye to an important person in his life before boarding a plane and stating he doesn’t want to go and doesn’t know when he’ll be back. These lines although by accident, sheds some insight on the tragic event that occurred in 1997. Denver was piloting his private plane when he had a failed engine resulting in a plane crash. He was 53.
