How Can I Leave You Again

John Denver


Intro - D - Em - A - A7sus4
Di di di di di la la la la la la

(verse 1)
 D
In a spaceship over the mountains,
 Em7GD
chasing rainbows in the setting sun,
 GEm7DBm
leaving heart and home for the city of angels,
 Em7A
feel my life is undone,
 D
There are pathways winding below me,
 Em7GD
In pleasure I've gone where they go,
 GEm7DBm
In the quiet stillness, I can hear symphonies,
 Em7A
the loveliest music I know,

(Chorus)
 Em7ADBm
 How can I leave you again,  
 Em7AF#m7Bm
must be clear out of my mind,  
 Em7F#mG
 Lost in a storm I've gone blind,
 Em7AD
Oh, how can I leave you again,

(Bridge)
 Em7D
Oh, it's been a long time since I've listened,
 Em7D
still longer since I've walked with you,
 Em7D
For the first time I know what I'm missing,
 EmCAA7sus
Some answers are no longer true, so I,

(Verse 2)
 D
question the course that I follow,
 Em7GD
I'm doubtful, deep in despair,
 GEm7DBm
My heart is filled with impossible notions,
 Em7A
Can it be you no longer care,
 D
Still I ride on the wings of a high wind,
 Em7GD
Blowing steady and strong behind me,
 GEm7DBm
As the clouds surrender, my fate is for certain,
 Em7A
I'm a sailor who runs to the sea, but

(Chorus)
 Em7ADBm
 How can I leave you again,  
 Em7AF#m7Bm
must be clear out of my mind,  
 Em7F#mG
 Lost in a storm I've gone blind,
 Em7AD
Oh, how can I leave you again,
