[Verse 1] 
[D]He was born in the summer of his [Em7]27th [C]year
[A]Comin' h[D]ome to a place he'd never b[Em7]een before[G]
A* D Em7 C
He left yesterday behind him, you might say he was born again
You[A] might s[D]ay he found a key for every do[Em7]or[G]
[Verse 2] 
A* D Em7 C
When he first came to the mountains his life was far away
O[A]n the r[D]oad and hangin' by a so[Em7]ng[G]
A* D Em7 C
But the string's already broken and he doesn't really care
[A]It keeps c[D]hangin' fast and it don't last for l[Em7]ong[G]
[Cborus] 
A* G A* D Dsus4 D
But the Colorado rocky mountain high
G A* D Dsus4 D
I've seen it rainin' fire in the sky
G A* D Em(o5) D11 G5/D
 
 The shadows from the starlight are softer than a lull---a---bye

Rocky mountain [D]high (Colo[Em7]rado)
G A* D Em7 G A*
Rocky mountain high (high in Colorado)
[Verse 3] 
He [D]climbed cathedral mountains, he saw [Em7]silver clouds be[C]low
[A]He saw [D]everything as far as you can s[Em7]ee[G]
A* D Em7 C
And they say that he got crazy once and he tried to touch the sun
[A]And he [D]lost a friend but kept the memo[Em7]ry[G]
[Verse 4] 
A* D Em7 C
Now he walks in quiet solitude the forest and the streams
[A]Seeking [D]grace in every step he [Em7]takes[G]
A* D Em7 C
His sight has turned inside himself to try and understand
[A]The se[D]renity of a clear blue mountain l[Em7]ake[G]
[Cborus] 
A* G A* D Dsus4 D
But the Colorado rocky mountain high
G A* D Dsus4 D
I've seen it rainin' fire in the sky
G A* D Em(o5) D11 G5/D
Talk to God and listen to the casual re--ply
Rocky mountain [D]high (Colo[Em7]rado)
G A* D Em7 G
Rocky mountain high (high in Colorado)
[Verse 5] 
A* D Em7 C
Now his life is full of wonder but his heart still knows some fear
[A]Of a [D]simple thing he cannot compre[Em7]hend[G]
A* D Em7 C
Why they try to tear the mountains down to bring in a couple more
[A]More peop[D]le, more scars upon the [Em7]land[G]
[Cborus] 
A* G A* D Dsus4 D
But the Colorado rocky mountain high
G A* D Dsus4 D
I've seen it rainin' fire in the sky
G A* D Em(o5) D11 G5/D
I know he'd be a poorer man if he never saw an ea-----gle fly
Rocky mountain [D]high
G A* D Dsus4 D
It's a Colorado rocky mountain high
G A* D Dsus4 D
I've seen it rainin' fire in the sky
G A* D Em(o5)D11 G5/D
Friends around the campfire and everybo----dy's high
Rocky mountain h[D]igh (high in Colo[Em7]rado)[G]
A* D Em7 G
Rocky mountain high (high in Colorado)
A* D Em7 G
Rocky mountain high (high in Colorado)
A* D Em7 G
Rocky mountain high (high in Colorado)
A* D Em7 G
Rocky mountain high (high in Colorado)
A* D Em7 G A*[Bold] D[Bold]
Rocky mountain high (high in Colorado)
