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 DHe was born in the summer of his 27th year,G CComin' home to a place he'd never been before.G Em C DHe left yesterday behind him, you might say he was born again,G CYou might say he found a key for every door.G C DWhen he first came to the mountain his life was far away,G COn the road and hangin' by a song,G Em C DBut the string's already broken and he doesn't really care,G CIt keeps changin' fast and it don't last for long.C D G C D GBut the Colorado Rocky Mountain high, I've seen it rainin' fire in the sky.C D G CThe shadow from the starlight is softer than a lullaby.G C G CRocky Mountain high, Colorado, Rocky Mountain high, Colorado.G C DHe climbed cathedral mountains, he saw silver clouds below,G CHe saw everything as far as you can see.G Em C DAnd they say that he got crazy once and he tried to touch the sun,G CAnd he lost a friend, but kept his memory.G C DNow he walks in quiet solitude the forests and the streams,G CSeeking grace in every step he takes.G Em C DHis sight has turned inside himself to try and understandG CThe serenity of a clear blue mountain lake.C D G C D GAnd the Colorado Rocky Mountain high, I've seen it rainin' fire in the sky.C D G CYou can talk to God and listen to the casual reply.G C G CRocky Mountain high, Colorado, Rocky Mountain high, Colorado.G C DNow his life is full of wonder, but his heart still know some fearG COf a simple thing he cannot comprehend.G Em C DWhy they try to tear the mountain down to bring in a couple more,G CMore people, more scars upon the land.C D G C D GAnd the Colorado Rocky Mountain high, I've seen it rainin' fire in the sky.C D G CI know he'd be a poorer man if he never saw an eagle fly.G C D GRocky Mountain high, it's a Colorado Rocky Mountain high,C D G C I've seen it rainin' fire in the sky, friends around theD G Ccampfire and everybody's high,G C G C Rocky Mountain high, Colorado, Rocky Mountain high, Colorado.
