About this tab version
I found this fingering to be the easiest to play on the uke. Capo on 4th fret puts this in the correct key. Was this info helpful? Yes No
[Verse 1]
       C                         F    G
He was born in the summer of his 27th year
       C                          F 
Comin' home to a place he'd never been before
        C           Am                  F                G
He left yesterday behind him, you might say he was born again
          C                            F
You might say he found a key for every door

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

[Chorus 1]
F                G                C
But the Colorado rocky mountain high
     F               G           C
I've seen it rainin' fire in the sky
F                    G             C                  F
The shadows from the starlight are softer than a lullaby
               C
Rocky mountain high
     F
(Colorado)
               C
Rocky mountain high
             F       
(High in Colorado)

[Verse 2]
   C                                   F               G
He climbed cathedral mountains, he saw silver clouds below
       C                            F 
He saw everything as far as you can see
         C               Am                F                  G
And they say that he got crazy once and he tried to touch the sun
       C                             F
And he lost a friend but kept the memory

       C                           F              G
Now he walks in quiet solitude the forest and the streams
        C                      F 
Seeking grace in every step he takes
    C                Am                F            G
His sight has turned inside himself to try and understand
    C                                 F
The serenity of a clear blue mountain lake

{Chorus 2]
F                G                C
And the Colorado rocky mountain high
     F               G           C
I've seen it rainin' fire in the sky
F               G             C         F
Talk to God and listen to the casual reply
               C
Rocky mountain high
             F
(high in Colorado)
               C
Rocky mountain high
             F
(high in Colorado)

[Verse 3]
        C                              F                      G
Now his life is full of wonder but his heart still knows some fear
     C                            F
Of a simple thing he cannot comprehend
         C               Am                F                 G
Why they try to tear the mountains down to bring in a couple more
     C                           F
More people, more scars upon the land

[Chorus 3]
F                G                C
And the Colorado rocky mountain high
     F               G           C
I've seen it rainin' fire in the sky
  F              G                C                  F
I know he'd be a poorer man if he never saw an eagle fly
               C
Rocky mountain high

[Coda]
       F        G                C
It's a Colorado rocky mountain high
     F            G           C
I've seen it rain fire in the sky
F                  G            C           F
Friends around the campfire and everybody's high
               C
Rocky mountain high
             F
(high in Colorado)
               C
Rocky mountain high
             F
(high in Colorado)
               C
Rocky mountain high
             F
(high in Colorado)
