Toots And The Maytals
          (Take Me Home) Country Roads - Toots and the Maytals

Played in a reggae style, with the chords on the off beat. Use barre chords.
You could use a capo on fret 1, and play G, Em, D, C, etc., but I prefer to use 
barre chords for the beat.

Intro: G# You can also play the low E string, 4th fret, tremolo.

Ab            Fm
Almost heaven, West Jamaica,
True ridge mountains
C#               Ab
Shining down the River.
All my friends there,
Older than those ridge,
Younger than the mountains,
C#             Ab
Blowin' like a breeze

Ab                    Eb
Country roads, take me home,
       Fm        C# 
To the place I belong:
       Ab            Eb
West Jamaica, my ol' mama,
        C#            Ab
Take me home, country roads.

Fm          Eb
I heard her voice
       Ab               Fm
In the mornin' hour she calls me,
      C#         Ab            Eb
Said "Son, you remind me of my home far away,"
    Ab               Eb            C#
And drivin' down the road I feel a sickness, I sure did,
Oh yesterday, yesterday.

Ab               Fm
All my memories, oh, gathered 'round her,
Eb           C#              Ab
My old lady, stranger to the water.
Ab              Fm
Dark and dusty, painted on the sky,
Miss the taste of moonshine,
C#                 Ab
Tears gone from my eyes.

Ab                    Eb
Country roads, take me home,
       Fm        C# 
To the place I belong:
       Ab              Eb
West Jamaica, my my my mama,
                        C#            Ab
Oh won't you take me go home, country roads.
