John Denver


Capo 2nd fret

 GEmD
 ALMOST HEAVEN WEST VIRGINIA BLUE RIDGE MOUNTAINS,
 CGGEm
 SHENANDOAH RIVER.  LIFE IS OLD THERE OLDER THAN THE TREES,

COUNTRY ROADS, TAKE ME HOME TO THE PLACE, I BELONG
 GDCG
WEST VIRGINIA, MOUNTAIN MOMMA, TAKE ME HOME, COUNTRY ROADS.

 GEmD
 ALL MY MEMORIES GATHER ROUND HER, MINER'S LADY,
 CGGEm
 STRANGER TO BLUE WATER.  DARK AND DUSTY PAINTED ON THE SKY
 DCG
 MISTY TASTE OF MOONSHINE TEAR DROP IN MY EYE.

 GDEmC
COUNTRY ROADS, TAKE ME HOME TO THE PLACE I BELONG
 GDCG
WEST VIRGINIA MOUNTAIN MOMMA TAKE ME HOME COUNTRY ROADS.

 EmDG
 I HEAR HER VOICE IN THE MORNIN' HOURS SHE CALLS ME
 CGD
THE RADIO REMINDS ME OF MY HOME FAR AWAY,
 EmFCG
AND DRIVIN' DOWN THE ROAD I GET THE FEELIN' THAT I SHOULD HAVE BEEN HOME
 DD7
 YESTERDAY, YESTERDAY.

 GDEmC
COUNTRY ROADS TAKE ME HOME THE PLACE I BELONG,
 GDCG
WEST VIRGINIA, MOUNTAIN MOMMA TAKE ME HOME COUNTRY ROADS
 DGDG
TAKE ME HOME COUNTRY ROADS, TAKE ME HOME COUNTRY ROADS.

This song is perfect just as it is.

Transpose this song +2 semitones and play it in "A" it is so much easier to play this way! and when you get to the "and driving down the road" part you can leave out the "G" chord and just slide down from F#minor to "E" somehow it is much easier to memorize the chords this way! Hope this helps some people who want to play this song!

soooo capo on the 2nd fret? :-) = (two semitones)
Stop911 (report comment to admin):
Good song this well done, I would only add C to G twice for the very last line.

rather than D to G as it sounds much better

I put the capo on the 3rd fret.  Sounds nice to me (plus it's in my range there :-))
ednaspal (report comment to admin):
After listening to original I believe that it is in A.

So try it +2 semitones as Miss Kitty suggested. Worked for me!
CEASER67 (report comment to admin):
i think miss kitty has it bang on  nice one  
doctony (report comment to admin):
As for the key, and noting well that many players [even when playing alone in the confines of their home] tend to sing or hum along with the tune, I think one's "voice range" becomes an issue. Now for me, when the tune begins in 'G', it seems to fit but moving up 2 semitones and starting with the 'A' becomes a voice strain.

oh my this plays well good on  the uke  nice one x
theamazingsupergirl (report comment to admin):
I was wondering where the Fmaj7 and D7 come in, too.  Also, who is your quote by?  It's so true that luck is preparation when opportunity arises.
theamazingsupergirl (report comment to admin):
oh wait...i see those chords in the bridge.  nevermind.  :-)
r_d_sebastian (report comment to admin):
this is a beautiful song sung by one of my favorite artists and i wouldn't change aqny of it

wattatripp (report comment to admin):
There should be a C, right on the word "mornin'" on the bridge. The G chord should then on "calls".
