...COUNTRY ROADS... by Toots & The Maytals
-------------------.......................

*from 'Funky Kingston' (1973)*


Intro:

G#  G#7 (x3), G# (n.c)

Verse 1:

G#      Fm
 Almost heaven, West Jamaica,
D#                     C#               G#
 True Ridge Mountains, shining down the river.
G#                     Fm
 All my friends there,  holding on those ridge,
D#                          C#             G#
 Younger than the mountain, blowin' like a breeze.

Chorus 1:

        G#            D#           C#
Country roads take me home, to the place I belong.
     G#              D#                  C#            G#
West Jamaica, my ol' Mama ma ma, take me home, country roads.

Verse 2:

G#           D#            G#               Fm
 I heard her voice; in the mornin' hour she calls me.
       C#         G#            D#
Said; "son you re-mind me of my home far away".
G#                D#             C#
 Drivin' down the road, I feel a sickness, I sure did,
       D#
Oh yes-terday, yesterday.

Verse 3:

G#      Fm
 All my memories all gather 'round her,
D#          C#              G#
 Mama Lady, stranger to the water.
G#              Fm
 Dark and dusky painted on the sky,
D#                         C#                 G#
 Misty taste of moonshine, tears gone from my eye.

Chorus 2:

        G#            D#           C#
Country roads take me home, to the place I belong.
     G#              D#
West Jamaica, my ol' Mama ma ma,
                    C#            G#
Won't you let me go home, country roads?

Interlude:

G#  Fm, D#  C#  G# (x2)

Chorus 3:

        G#            D#           C#
Country roads take me home, to the place I belong.
     G#              D#                  C#            G#
West Jamaica, my ol' Mama ma ma, take me home, country roads.

Chorus 4:

        G#            D#           C#
Country roads take me home, to the place I belong.
     G#              D#                  C#            G#
West Jamaica, my ol' Mama ma ma, take me home, country roads.
