Whispering Jesse

John Denver

 I often had wandered, in deep contemplation     
 It seems that the mind runs wild when you?re all alone         
The way that it could be, the ways that it should be      
Things I?d do differently, if I could do them again      

 I?ve always loved springtime, the passing of winter       
 The green of the new leaves and life goin? on        
The promise of morning, the long days of summer             
Warm nights of loving her, beneath the bright stars         

 I?m just an old cowboy, from high Colorado        
 To old to ride anymore, too blind to see     
I sleep in the city now, away from my mountains      
 Away from the cabin we always called home        

 I dreamed I left there, on an old palamino      
 Whispering Jesse rode right by my side    
I long to hold her, to hear her soft breathing  
 The touch of her cool hand, on my fevered brow          

G - A - D       G - A - D      G - A - Bm - G - A

Whispering Jesse, still rides in the mountains 
 Still sings in the canyons, still lives in my heart   

A Bm D G G-A
