I Guess He'd Rather Be in Colorado  John Denver

Very easy to play and I have included the instrumental part too.
If there is anyone out there who can tab this without using tab pro that would be
much appreciated!
Intro: D C G
I [D]guess he'd rather [C]be in Color[G]ado
He'd [D]rather spend his [C]time out where the [G]sky looks like a [D]pearl after [C]rain
Once a[G]gain I see him walkin',
Once a[D]gain I hear him talking,
to the [Em]stars he makes and [C]asking them for [G]bus fares
I [D]guess he'd rather [C]be in Colo[G]rado
He'd [D]rather play his [C]banjo in the [G]morning when the [D]moon is scarcely [C]gone
In the [G]dawn the subways comin',
In the [D]dawn I hear him hummin'
Some old [Em]song he wrote of [C]love in Boulder [G]Canyon
I [D]guess he'd rather [C]be in Colo[G]rado
Instrumental: D C G D C G
I [D]guess he'd rather [C]be in Colo[G]rado
I [D]guess he'd rather [C]work out where the [G]only thing you [D]earn is what you [C]spend
In the [G]end up in his office,
In the [D]end a quiet cough is all he [Em]has to show,
He [C]lives in New York [G]City
