Capo II
[A] [D] [Em7] [C] [A] [D] [Em7] [G]  
[A]He was b[D]orn in the summer, of his twenty se[Em7]venth year[C];[A]
Comin' [D]home to a place he'd never been bef[Em7]ore[G] [A]
He left[D] yesterday behind him,
you might say[Em7] he was born aga[C]in[A]
You might say h[D]e found a key for every d[Em7]oor[G] [A]
When he firs[D]t came to the mountains, his life was [Em7]far awa[C]y[A]
On the road[D] and hangin' by a [Em7]song[G] [A]
But the [D]string's already broken, and he[Em7] doesn't really care[C];[A]
It keeps[D] changing fast, and it don't la[Em7]st for long[G] [A]
But the [G]Colorado R[A]ocky Mountain high[D] [D/A]
I've [G]seen it rainin' fi[A]re in the sky[D] [D/A]
The[G] shadow from the sta[A]r-light is [D]softer than a l[Em7]ull [Dmaj7]- a - [G] by
Rocky Mountain high,[D] Co[Em7]lora[G]do
Rocky[A] Mountain high[D], C[Em7]olorad[G]o[A]
He climbed[D] cathedral mountains, he sa[Em7]w silver clouds belo[C]w;[A]
he saw [D]everything as far as you can s[Em7]ee[G] [A]
And they [D]say that he got crazy once,
and he [Em7]tried to touch the[C] s[A]un;
And he[D] lost a friend but kept the mem[Em7]ory[C] [A]
( Tab from: )
Now he [D]walks in quiet solitude, the[Em7] forests and the stream[C]s;[A]
seeking [D]grace in every step he takes[Em7] [G] [A]
His sight [D]has turned inside himself to[Em7] try and underst[C]an[A]d;
the se[D]renity of a clear blue mountain [Em7]lake[G] [A]
And the[G] Colorado[A] Rocky Mountain h[D]ig[D/A]h
I've [G]seen it rainin'[A] fi[D]re[D/A] in the sky
[G]talk to God and listen to the [A]cas - u[D]al [Em7] re [Dmaj7] - p[G]ly
Rocky Mountain high[D], Colorad[Em7]o[G]
Rocky [A]Mountain hig[D]h, Colorad[Em7]o[G] [A]
Now his [D]life is full of wonder,
but his [Em7]heart still knows some fea[C]r;[A]
of a [D]simple thing he cannot compr[Em7]ehend[G] [A]
Why they [D]try to tear the mountains down,
To [Em7]bring in a couple mo[C]re[A];
more [D]people, more scars upon the land[Em7] [G] [A]
And the [G]Colorado R[A]ocky Mountain hi[D]gh[D/A]
I've s[G]een it raining fire [A]in the[D] s[D/A]ky
I [G]know he'd be a p[A]oorer man if h[D]e never saw a[Em7]n ea[Dmaj7] - g[G]le fly
Rocky Mountain high,[D] Colorado[Em7] [G] [A]
Rocky Mountain high,[D] Colorado[Em7] [G] [A]
And the [G]Colorado R[A]ocky Mountain high[D] [D/A]
I've[G] seen it raining fir[A]e in the sky[D] [D/A]
[G]Friends around the camp[A] - fire[D] and ev[Em7]erybod[D]y - [G] y's high
Rocky Mountain high[D], C[Em7]olorad[G]o
Rocky[A] Mountain hig[D]h, [Em7]Colora[G]do
Rocky[A] Mountain hig[D]h, [Em7]Colora[G]do
Rocky[A] Mountain hig[D]h, [Em7]Colora[G]do . . .
