John Denver - Rocky Mountain High chords

      
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 understand
G 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 fear
G 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 the
D G Ccampfire and everybody's high,
G C G C Rocky Mountain high, Colorado, Rocky Mountain high, Colorado.
