hope you all enjoy it.
Whispering Jesse
John Denver (klr)
[D]I often had wand[G]ered, [A]in dee[Bm]p co[G]ntemplation[D]
[G]It [A]seems that the mind[D] runs w[A]ild wh[G]en you[Bm]?re all alone[A]
The way[G] that it could b[D]e, the ways [G]that i[A]t should be[D]
Th[G]ings I?d do d[A]iffer[D-A-G]ently, if I could do th[A]em again[D]
[D]I?ve always loved springtime[G], the [A]passin[Bm]g of [G]winter[D]
[G]The gre[A]en of the new lea[D]ves[A-G] and life goi[Bm]n? on[A]
The promi[G]se of morning, [D]the long da[G]ys of[A] summer[D]
Wa[G]rm nights[A] of loving h[D]er, [A-G]beneath [A]the bright stars[D]
[D]I?m just an old cowboy[G], from[A] high [Bm]Color[G]ado[D]
[G]To ol[A]d to rid[D]e anym[A-G]ore, too blind t[Bm]o see[A]
I sl[G]eep in the city [D]now, away fr[G-A]om my mountains[D]
[G]Aw[-A]ay from the cabi[D-A-G]n we always[A] called home[D]
[D]I dr[G]eamed I left[D] there, on an[G] old pal[A]amino[D]
[G]Whisp[A]ering Jes[D-A-G]se rode righ[Bm]t by my side[A]
I lo[G]ng to hold[D] her, to he[G]ar h[A]er soft breathing[D]
[G]The tou[A]ch of her cool han[D-A-G]d, on my fever[A]ed brow[D]
 G - A - D G - A - D G - A - Bm - G - A

Whi[A]spering Jess[D-A-G]e, still rid[A]es in the mountains[D]
[G]Still sings i[A]n the canyons[D], still [G]lives[A] in my heart[D]
