Rocky mountain high

John Denver

 DEmGA7
 DEmCA
He was born in the summer of his 27th year
 DEmG
Comin' home to a place he'd never been before
 D
He left yesterday behind him
 EmCA
You might say he was born again
 DEmG
You might say he found a key for every door

 DEmCA
When he first came to the mountains his life was far away
 DEmG
On the road and hangin' by a song
 DEmCA
But the string's already broken and he doesn't really care
 DEmG
It keeps changin' fast, and It don't last for long

 GAD
But the Colorados Rocky Mountain high
 GAD
I've seen it rainin' fire in the sky
 GADAG
The shadow from the starlight is softer than a lullabye
 DEmG
Rocky Mountain high, Colorado
 ADEmG
Rocky Mountain high, Colorado

 DEmCA
He climbed cathedral mountains, he saw silver clouds below
 DEmG
He saw everything as far as you can see
 D
And they say that he got crazy once
 EmCA
and he tried to touch the sun
 DEmCA
And he lost a friend but kept his memory

 DEmCA
Now he walks in quiet solitude the forests and the streams
 DEmG
Seeking grace in every step he takes
 DEmCA
His sight has turned inside himself to try and understandd
 DEmCA
The serenity of a clear blue mountain lake

 GAD
And the Colorado Rocky Mountain high
 GAD
I've seen it rainin' fire in the sky
 GADAG
You can talk to God and list to the casual reply
 D
Rocky Mountain high

 D
Now his life is full of wonder
 EmCA
but his heart still knows some fear
 DEmG
Of the simple things he cannot understand
 D
Why they try to tear the mountain down
 EmCA
To bring in a couple more
 DEmCA
More people more sorrows upon the land

 GAD
And the Colorados Rocky Mountain high
 GAD
I've seen it rainin' fire in the sky
 GADAG
I know he'd be a poorer man if henever saw an eagle fly
 D
Rocky Mountain high
 GAD
It's a Colorado Rocky Mountain high
 GAD
I've seen it rain' fire in the sky
 GADG
 Friends around the campfire and everybody's high
 D
Rocky Mountain high
