Canadian country-pop music singer Anne Murray was a fan of the original recording and recorded a cover version in 1972. The version she recorded of the song omitted two of the lyric verses and is in a different key than the original version by Loggins & Messina. Included on her album of the same name, Murray’s version of “Danny’s Song” was a hit, reaching the Top 10 on three major Billboard music charts in early 1973.

Lyrics

People smile and tell me I’m the lucky one
And we’ve just begun, I think I’m gonna have a son
He will be like you and me, as free as a dove
Conceived in love, the sun is gonna shine above
And even though we ain’t got money
I’m so in love with ya honey
Everything bring a chain of love
And in the morning when I rise
Bring a tear of joy to my eyes
And tell me every thing’s gonna be all right
Love a guy who holds the world in a paper cup
Drink it up, love him and he’ll bring you luck
And if ya find he helps your mind, better take him home
Yeah ‘n don’t you live alone, try to earn what lovers own
And even though we ain’t got money
I’m so in love with ya honey
Everything bring a chain of love
And in the morning when I rise
Bring a tear of joy to my eyes
And tell me every thing’s gonna be all right
And even though we ain’t got money
I’m so in love with ya honey
Everything bring a chain of love
And in the morning when I rise
Bring a tear of joy to my eyes
And tell me every thing’s gonna be all right
