Take Me Home Country Roads   John Denver


TAKE ME HOME, COUNTRY ROADS  Time: 2/2  Tenor: G  Bass: C  Class: G

1           *       6m            *
.... Almost heaven, .... West Vir-ginia

5               *          4          1     *
.... Blue Ridge Mountains, Shenandoah River___

*            *          6m             *
.... Life is old there, older than the trees

5                *          4              1
Younger than the mountains, growin' like a breeze


CHORUS:

        1     *            57  *
Country roads___, take me home___
       6m    *        4    *
To the place___, I be-long___
         1      *            57    *
West Vir-gin-ia___, mountain momma___
        4    *           1     *     *
Take me home___, Country Roads___


1           *         6m      *
.... All my mem'ries, gather 'round her
5            *     4                1
.... Miner's lady, stranger to blue water
*             *      6m             *
.... Dark and dusty, painted on the sky
5              *          4              1
Misty taste of moonshine, teardrop in my eye


6m            5             1                 *
.. I hear her voice, in the mornin' hours she calls to me
    4        1              57         *
The radio re-minds me of my home far a-way
    6m               7b           4
And drivin' down the road I get a feeling'
       1                     5         *          57  *
That I should have been home yesterday___, yester-day___
