Rocky mountain high  John Denver

[D]        [Em]             [G]       [A7]  
He was bo[D]rn in the summer of his [Em]27t[C]h y[A]ear
Comin' h[D]ome to a place he'd never b[Em]een be[G]fore
He left [D]yesterday behind him
You might say h[Em]e was b[C]orn ag[A]ain
You might s[D]ay he found a key for ev[Em]ery d[G]oor

When he f[D]irst came to the mountains his l[Em]ife was f[C]ar aw[A]ay
On the r[D]oad and hangin' b[Em]y a s[G]ong
But the s[D]tring's already broken and he d[Em]oesn't r[C]eally c[A]are
It keeps [D]changin' fast, and I[Em]t don't last for l[G]ong

But the [G]Colorados R[A]ocky Mountain h[D]igh
I've se[G]en it rainin' f[A]ire in the s[D]ky
The sh[G]adow from the sta[A]rlight is s[D]ofter than a [A]lulla[G]bye
Rocky Mountain [D]high, [Em]Colo[G]rado
Rocky [A]Mountain [D]high, [Em]Colo[G]rado
He cli[D]mbed cathedral mountains, he saw [Em]silver c[C]louds b[A]elow
He sa[D]w everything as f[Em]ar as you[G] can see
And they [D]say that he got crazy once
and he tr[Em]ied to t[C]ouch the [A]sun
And he l[D]ost a friend but [Em]kept his [C]memo[A]ry
Now he w[D]alks in quiet solitude the f[Em]orests an[C]d the st[A]reams
Seeking g[D]race in every [Em]step he [G]takes
His s[D]ight has turned inside himself to [Em]try and [C]understand[A]d
The se[D]renity of a cl[Em]ear blue m[C]ountain l[A]ake
And the [G]Colorado R[A]ocky Mountain h[D]igh
I've se[G]en it rainin' f[A]ire in the s[D]ky
You can [G]talk to God and [A]list to the [D]casu[A]al re[G]ply
Rocky Mountain [D]high
Now his [D]life is full of wonder
but his [Em]heart still [C]knows some [A]fear
Of the [D]simple things he [Em]cannot under[G]stand
Why they [D]try to tear the mountain down
To [Em]bring in a [C]couple [A]more
More [D]people more [Em]sorrows up[C]on the l[A]and
And the [G]Colorados R[A]ocky Mountain h[D]igh
I've se[G]en it rainin' f[A]ire in the s[D]ky
I[G] know he'd be a [A]poorer man if he[D]never [A]saw an eagle [G]fly
Rocky Mountain [D]high
It's a [G]Colorado R[A]ocky Mountain [D]high
I've [G]seen it rain' [A]fire in the [D]sky
[G]Friends around the [A]campfire and [D]everybody's [G]high
Rocky Mountain [D]high
