Rocky Mountain High (John Denver)
#A much simpler version, a sort of a camp-fire version of it, and easy to sing 
along with as well, which works best for me. A friend of mine used to play like 
this, i just tabbed it#


       G                         C    D
He was born in the summer of his 27th year,
       G                          C
Comin' home to a place he'd never been before.
        G           Em                  C                D
He left yesterday behind him, you might say he was born again,
          G                            C
You might say he found a key for every door.
        G                              C             D
When he first came to the mountain his life was far away,
       G                     C
On the road and hangin' by a song,
        G                Em            C              D
But the string's already broken and he doesn't really care,
         G                                   C
It keeps changin' fast and it don't last for long.
        C        D              G          C               D           G
But the Colorado Rocky Mountain high, I've seen it rainin' fire in the sky.
    C               D            G                  C
The shadow from the starlight is softer than a lullaby.
               G         C                    G         C
Rocky Mountain high, Colorado, Rocky Mountain high, Colorado.
   G                                   C               D
He climbed cathedral mountains, he saw silver clouds below,
       G                            C
He saw everything as far as you can see.
         G               Em                C                  D
And they say that he got crazy once and he tried to touch the sun,
       G                               C
And he lost a friend, but kept his memory.
G                                  C               D
Now he walks in quiet solitude the forests and the streams,
        G                      C
Seeking grace in every step he takes.
    G                  Em              C            D
His sight has turned inside himself to try and understand
    G                                 C
The serenity of a clear blue mountain lake.
        C        D              G          C               D           G
And the Colorado Rocky Mountain high, I've seen it rainin' fire in the sky.
        C               D             G        C
You can talk to God and listen to the casual reply.
               G         C                    G         C
Rocky Mountain high, Colorado, Rocky Mountain high, Colorado.
        G                               C                     D
Now his life is full of wonder, but his heart still know some fear
     G                            C
Of a simple thing he cannot comprehend.
         G               Em               C                 D
Why they try to tear the mountain down to bring in a couple more,
     G                           C
More people, more scars upon the land.
        C        D              G          C               D           G
And the Colorado Rocky Mountain high, I've seen it rainin' fire in the sky.
  C              D                G                  C
I know he'd be a poorer man if he never saw an eagle fly.
               G            C        D              G
Rocky Mountain high, it's a Colorado Rocky Mountain high,
     C               D           G    C                 
I've seen it rainin' fire in the sky, friends around the
D            G   C
campfire and everybody's high,
               G         C                    G         C	
Rocky Mountain high, Colorado, Rocky Mountain high, Colorado.
