John Denver

Capo II

D Em G A  2x
                                
A7     D                          Em     C       A
He was born in the summer, of his twenty seventh year;
       D                    Em    C      A
Coming home to a place he'd never been before
   D
He left yesterday behind him,
              Em     C     A     
you might say he was born again
          D              Em      C     A
You might say he found a key for every door

        D                                Em       C    A
When he first came to the mountains, his life was far away;
       D        Em      C    A
On the road and hanging by a song
        D                               Em      C      A
But the string's already broken, and he doesn't really care;
         D                  Em       C        A
It keeps changing fast, and it don't last for long

        G        A              D
But the Colorado Rocky Mountain high
     G               A           D
I've seen it raining fire in the sky
    G               A            D             A    G
The shadow from the starlight is softer than a lullaby 
      A        D   Em    G
Rocky Mountain high, Colorado
      A        D   Em    G     A7
Rocky Mountain high, Colorado

   D                                   Em     C        A
He climbed cathedral mountains, he saw silver clouds below;
       D             Em     C       A
he saw everything as far as you can see
         D
And they say that he got crazy once,
       Em       C         A
and he tried to touch the sun;
       D                 Em   C       A
And he lost a friend but kept the memory

       D                            Em      C       A
Now he walks in quiet solitude, the forests and the streams;
        D        Em    C       A
seeking grace in every step he takes 
    D                                  Em      C    A
His sight has turned inside himself to try and understand;
    D             Em         C        A
the serenity of a clear blue mountain lake


        G        A              D
And the Colorado Rocky Mountain high
     G               A           D
I've seen it raining fire in the sky
G               A             D      A G
talk to God and listen to the casual reply
      A        D   Em    G
Rocky Mountain high, Colorado
      A        D   Em    G     A7
Rocky Mountain high, Colorado

        D
Now his life is full of wonder,
        Em          C          A
but his heart still knows some fear;
     D            Em        C     A
of a simple thing he cannot comprehend
D               
Why they try to tear the mountains down,
   Em         C      A
To bring in a couple more;
     D            Em     C       A
more people, more scars upon the land

        G        A              D
And the Colorado Rocky Mountain high
     G               A           D
I've seen it raining fire in the sky
G                A                D            A     G
I know he'd be a poorer man if he never saw an eagle fly
      A        D   Em    G
Rocky Mountain high, Colorado
      A        D   Em    G     A7
Rocky Mountain high, Colorado

        G        A              D
And the Colorado Rocky Mountain high
     G               A           D
I've seen it raining fire in the sky
G                  A            D    A      G
Friends around the campfire and everybody's high
      A        D   Em    G
Rocky Mountain high, Colorado
      A        D   Em    G     A7
Rocky Mountain high, Colorado
