Take me home country roads  John Denver

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

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

1) [D]Blue Ridge Mountains, [C]Shenandoah       [G]River.
2) miner's lady, stranger to blue water.

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

1) [D]younger than the mountains
2) misty taste of moonshine

1) [C]growin' like a breeze[G].
2) teardrop in my eye.

Ref.) Country [G]roads, take me [D]home, to the [Em]place I be[C]long.
      West Vir[G]ginia, Mountain [D]momma, take me [C]home Country [G]roads

Bridge) Em D G
I hear her voice in the morning hour she calls me,
        the [C]radio rem[G]inds her of my [D]home far away
        and [Em]driving down the [D]road I get a [C]feeling
        that I [G]should have been home [D]yesterday, [D7]yester[G]day.

Take Me Home, Country Roads - John Denver

[A]     [A]     [A]     [A]                      
Almost [A]heaven, [F#m]West Virginia,
[E]Blue Ridge Mountains, [D]Shenandoah [A]River.
[A]Life is old there, [F#m]older than the trees,
[E]Younger than the mountains [D]growin' like a br[A]eeze

Country [A]Roads, take me [E]home
To the [F#m]place I be[D]long:
West Vir[A]ginia, mountain [E]momma,
Take me [D]home, Country [A]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 ....

[F#m]I hear her [E]voice, in the [A]mornin' hours she calls me,
The [D]radio re[A]minds me of my [E]home far away,
And [F#m]drivin' down the [G]road
I get a [D]feelin' that I [A]should have been home [E]yesterday, yester[E7]day.

Country Roads ....

Take me [E]home, Country [A]Roads,
Take me [E]home, Country [A]Roads.
