Judy Collins - The Blizzard chords

Highlighted       Show chord diagrams
I've looked everywhere for this song and can't find it, so I finally gave up and 
figured it out myself. She usually plays it on piano, so I figured it out that way 
first and then tried it on guitar to see if it still sounded OK. I think it works. 
If I missed something, please let me know.

Capo I

C       G    F     C
Colorado, Colorado

C         F            C   F
When the world leaves you shivering

F                G
And the blizzard blows

C             G     F             C
When the snow flies and the night falls

           Am
There's a light in the window

       F            G
And a place called home

F                 Am
At the end of the storm

Am                      
One night on the mountain I was headed for Estes

                                    F          G
When the roads turned to ice and it started to snow

Am                                          
Put on the chains in a whirl of white powder

                               F         G
Halfway up to Berthoud near a diner I know

C
And the light burned inside, shining down through the snowfall

G                        F           G
God, it was cold, and the temperature droppin'

C
Went in for coffee and I shivered as I drank it

G                         F
Warming my hands in the steam as it rose

Am
Sitting there at the counter was a dark-headed stranger

Am                   F           G
Me and the owner and him keeping warm

Am
Nodded hello and I said, "It's a cold one.

Am                          F           G
Looks like there might be a blizzard tonight,"

     C
And "Yes," said the owner, "There's a big storm on the mountain.

G                               F           G
Good thing we're open; we could be here for hours.

C
There's nothing for miles, and it's too late to get to Denver.

G                      F         G
Better not try for the summit tonight."

C            G
And the snow fell

F             C
And the night passed

C      F             Am
And I talked to the strangers

Am     F        G  Am
As the blizzard blew 

Am
Me and the stranger, you know I don't talk to strangers

                                    F             G 
I'm a private sort of person, but a blizzard is a blizzard

    Am 
And somehow I found myself saying you'd left me

                         F         G
Telling him everything I wanted to say to you.

    C
You know how it is when you can talk to a stranger

G                         F                G       
Someone you're quite sure you'll never see again

C
Soon we were talkin' and laughin' and drinkin'.

          G                     F            G
He said, "You must know you're too good for him."

C            G
And the snow fell

F             C
And the night passed

C      F             Am
And I talked to the strangers

Am      F        G  Am
And the blizzard blew 

Am
The stranger said, "Love, it can cry you a river.

Am                       F              G
Me, I'm a loner, 'cause I can't take the heartache.

Am
Sometimes I'm a fighter when I get too much whiskey.

Am                              F              G      
Here, have a little whiskey; pretend you don't give a damn.

C
My cabin's up here on the side of the mountain.

G                       F                 G
You can go up there and sleep through the blizzard."

C
I put on my parka, said goodbye to the owner,

G                                 F           C 
Followed the stranger through the snow up the mountainside.

Am
Woke in the morning to the sun on the snow

Am                   F           G
My car was buried in six feet of snowdrift

Am
They dug me out, just the owner and the stranger

Am                         F            G
Sent me on my way when the snowplow had been by

        C
And the roads were all clear, and the sun on the mountains

G                             F            G
Sparkled like diamonds on the Peak-to-Peak Highway

C
Then I knew that I would get over you

Dm                      G                     C
Knew you could leave me, but you'd never break me

C       G    F     C
Colorado, Colorado

C         F            C   F
When the world leaves you shivering

                 G
And the blizzard blows

C             G     F             C
When the snow flies and the night falls

           F
There's a light in the window

       Dm           G
And a place called home

       F          C
At the end of the storm
