Rocky mountain high  John Denver

ROCKY MOUNTAIN HIGH, part 1

D e G A
1. He was born in the summer of his twenty-seventh year,
   coming h[D]ome to a place he'd never be[G]en before.   [-]  [A]
D e G A
He left yesterday behind him, you might say he was born again,
   you might s[D]ay he found the key to every d[G]oo[-]r.[A]

D e G A
2. When he first came to the mountains, his life was far away,
   on the r[D]oad and hanging by a s[G]ong[-]. [A]
D e G A
Well the string`s already broken and he doesn't really care,
   it ch[D]anges fast and it don't last too lo[G]ng[-]. [A]

    But The C[G]olorado R[A]ocky Mountain H[D]igh,
   I've se[G]en it raining f[A]ire in the s[D]ky.
G A D G ==
Shadow from the starlight is softer than a lullaby,
   Rocky Mountain H[D]ig[-]h,[G]  [-]  [A]      Rocky Mountain H[D]ig[-]h.[G]  [-]  [A]

3. Well he cl[D]imbed the feeble mountains,
e G D
he saw silver clouds below,
   he saw e[D]verything as far as you can s[G]ee[-]. [A]
D ^ e G A
They say that he got crazy once and he tried to touch the sun,
   he l[D]ost a friend but keep the memo[G]ry[-]. [A]


ROCKY MOUNTAIN HIGH, part 2

D e G A
4. Now he walks in quiet solitude through the forests and the streams,
    seeking gr[D]ace in every step he t[G]ake[-]s. [A]
D e G A
His sight has turned inside himself to try and understand,
    the ser[D]enity of clear blue mountain l[G]ake[-]s. [A]

    And The C[G]olorado [A]Rocky Mountain h[D]igh,
    I've s[G]een it raining fi[A]re in the s[D]ky.
G A D G ==
Talk to God and listen to the casual reply.
    Rocky Mountain Hi[D]gh,[-]  [G]  [-]  [A]  Rocky Mountain H[D]igh.[-]  [G]  [-]  [A]

5. Now his l[D]ife if full of wonder,
e G A
but his heart still knows some fear,
    of the s[D]imple things he cannot compreh[G]end[-]. [A]
    Why they t[D]ry and tear the mountains down
e G A D G - A
to bring in a couple more, more people, more scars upon the land.

    And The Col[G]orado R[A]ocky Mountain h[D]igh,
    I've s[G]een it raining f[A]ire in the s[D]ky.
G A D G ==
You know he'd be a poorer man if he never saw an eagle fly.
    Rocky Mountain h[D]igh, the C[G]olorado R[A]ocky Mountain h[D]igh,
    I've s[G]een it raining f[A]ire in the s[D]ky.
G A D G ==
Friends around the campfire and everybody is high.
    Rocky Mountain H[D]igh.[-]..[G] ([-]re[A]p. and fade)     (John Denver)
