Rocky Mountain High chords
John Denver

Capo II

F Am F  2x
                                
D7

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

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

        F        D              F
But the Colorado Rocky Mountain high
     F               D           F
I've seen it raining fire in the sky
    F               D            F             D    F
The shadow from the starlight is softer than a lullaby 
      D        F   Am    F
Rocky Mountain high, Colorado
      D        F   Am    F     D7
Rocky Mountain high, Colorado

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

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

        F        D              F
And the Colorado Rocky Mountain high
     F               D           F
I've seen it raining fire in the sky
F               D             F   D    F
talk to God and listen to the casual reply
      D        F   Am    F
Rocky Mountain high, Colorado
      D        F   Am    F     D7
Rocky Mountain high, Colorado

        F
Now his life is full of wonder,
        Am          F          D
but his heart still knows some fear;
     F               Am     F     F
of a simple thing he cannot comprehend
F               
Why they try to tear the mountains down,
   Am         F      D
To bring in a couple more;
     F            Am     F       F
more people, more scars upon the land

        F        D              F
And the Colorado Rocky Mountain high
     F               D           F
I've seen it raining fire in the sky
F                D                F            D     F
I know he'd be a poorer man if he never saw an eagle fly
      D        F   
Rocky Mountain high

        F        D              F
And the Colorado Rocky Mountain high
     F               D           F
I've seen it raining fire in the sky
F                  D            F           F
Friends around the campfire and everybody's high
      D        F   Am    F
Rocky Mountain high, Colorado
      D        F   Am    F     
Rocky Mountain high, Colorado
D        F   Am    F
Rocky Mountain high, Colorado
      D        F   Am    F     
Rocky Mountain high, Colorado . . .
