Capo II

Intro
A   D  Em7   C   A   D   Em7   G

A       D                                  Em7       C A
He was born in the summer, of his twenty seventh year;
       D                                  Em7    G A
Comin' home to a place he'd never been before
       D
He left yesterday behind him,
             Em7             C A
you might say he was born again
               D                        Em7    G A
You might say he found a key for every door

            D                                     Em7    C A
When he first came to the mountains, his life was far away
           D                 Em7   G  A
On the road and hangin' by a song
        D                              Em7                 C A
But the string's already broken, and he doesn't really care;
        D                              Em7        G A
It keeps changing fast, and it don't last for long

        G         A                 D D/A
But the Colorado Rocky Mountain high
     G                 A            D D/A
I've seen it rainin' fire in the sky
   G                   A          D              Em7  Dmaj7   G
The shadow from the star-light is softer than a lull  -  a  -  by
                    D  Em7 G
Rocky Mountain high, Colorado
     A             D  Em7   G A
Rocky Mountain high, Colorado

          D                          Em7                 C A
He climbed cathedral mountains, he saw silver clouds below;
       D                             Em7  G A
he saw everything as far as you can see
         D
And they say that he got crazy once,
       Em7               C A
and he tried to touch the sun;
      D                              Em7   C A
And he lost a friend but kept the memory

       D                           Em7                    C A
Now he walks in quiet solitude, the forests and the streams;
        D                            Em7  G A
seeking grace in every step he takes
          D                           Em7             C A
His sight has turned inside himself to try and understand;
      D                               Em7   G A
the serenity of a clear blue mountain lake

       G        A                D D/A
And the Colorado Rocky Mountain high
     G              A  D D/A
I've seen it rainin' fire in the sky
G                             A          D      Em7     Dmaj7    G
talk to God and listen to the cas   -   ual          re   -     ply
                   D        Em7   G
Rocky Mountain high, Colorado
      A           D         Em7   G A
Rocky Mountain high, Colorado

        D
Now his life is full of wonder,
        Em7                       C A
but his heart still knows some fear;
     D                           Em7    G A
of a simple thing he cannot comprehend
         D
Why they try to tear the mountains down,
   Em7                 C A
To bring in a couple more;
     D                               Em7    G A
more people, more scars upon the land
        G         A               D D/A
And the Colorado Rocky Mountain high
      G                   A     D D/A
I've seen it raining fire in the sky
  G               A             D            Em7 Dmaj7   G
I know he'd be a poorer man if he never saw an ea   -   gle  fly
                    D          Em7   G A
Rocky Mountain high, Colorado

                    D          Em7   G A
Rocky Mountain high, Colorado
        G         A                 D D/A
And the Colorado Rocky Mountain high
    G                   A           D D/A
I've seen it raining fire in the sky
G                      A        D      Em7   D    G
Friends around the camp  -  fire and everybody  -  y's high
                   D  Em7   G
Rocky Mountain high, Colorado
     A            D  Em7   G
Rocky Mountain high, Colorado
     A            D  Em7   G
Rocky Mountain high, Colorado
     A            D  Em7   G
Rocky Mountain high, Colorado . . .
