Take me home country roads

John Denver

--------------------------PLEASE NOTE---------------------------------#

1) Almost heaven,   West Virginia,
2) All my mem'ries, gather round her,

1) Blue Ridge Mountains, Shenandoah       River.
2) miner's lady, stranger to blue water.

1) Life is old there, older than the trees,
2) Dark and dusty, painted on the sky,

1) younger than the mountains
2) misty taste of moonshine

1) growin' like a breeze.
2) teardrop in my eye.

Ref.) Country roads, take me home, to the place I belong.
      West Virginia, Mountain momma, take me home Country roads

Bridge) Em D G
I hear her voice in the morning hour she calls me,
        the radio reminds her of my home far away
        and driving down the road I get a feeling
        that I should have been home yesterday, yesterday.

Take Me Home, Country Roads - John Denver

Almost heaven, West Virginia,
 Blue Ridge Mountains, Shenandoah River.
 Life is old there, older than the trees,
 Younger than the mountains growin' like a breeze

Country Roads, take me home
To the place I belong:
West Virginia, mountain momma,
Take me home, Country Roads.

All my mem'ries gather 'round her,
Miner's lady, stranger to blue water.
Dark and dusty, painted on the sky,
Misty taste of moonshine, teardrop in my eye.

Country Roads ....

 I hear her voice, in the mornin' hours she calls me,
The radio reminds me of my home far away,
And drivin' down the road
I get a feelin' that I should have been home yesterday, yesterday.

Country Roads ....

Take me home, Country Roads,
Take me home, Country Roads.

This song is easier to play in the key of A on the guitar. Also lead portion is also easier to navigate!!!
