[Verse 1]
D                                Em7  C    A
He was born in the summer of his 27th year
        D                          Em7         G  A*
Comin' home to a place he'd never been before
          D                               Em7              C   A
He left yesterday behind him, you might say he was born again
           D                             Em7  G  A*
You might say he found a key for every door

[Verse 2]
          D                               Em7           C   A
When he first came to the mountains his life was far away
        D                      Em7   G  A*
On the road and hangin' by a song
          D                               Em7            C   A
But the string's already broken and he doesn't really care
          D                                   Em7   G  A*
It keeps changin' fast and it don't last for long

[Chorus]
          G        A*                D    Dsus4  D 
But the Colorado rocky mountain high
          G          A*           D    Dsus4  D 
I've seen it rainin' fire in the sky
    G                  A*          D             Em(o5) D11 G5/D
The shadows from the starlight are softer than a lull---a---bye
               D            Em7   
Rocky mountain high    (Colorado)
G      A*        D                  Em7    G  A*
 Rocky mountain high   (high in Colorado)

[Verse 3]
   D                                   Em7             C   A
He climbed cathedral mountains, he saw silver clouds below 
       D                             Em7   G  A*
He saw everything as far as you can see
         D                                 Em7                C   A
And they say that he got crazy once and he tried to touch the sun
       D                              Em7   G   A*
And he lost a friend but kept the memory

[Verse 4]
       D                           Em7              C     A
Now he walks in quiet solitude the forest and the streams
        D                      Em7    G   A*
Seeking grace in every step he takes
              D                        Em7          C     A
His sight has turned inside himself to try and understand
      D                                Em7   G  A*
The serenity of a clear blue mountain lake

[Chorus]
          G        A*                D    Dsus4  D 
But the Colorado rocky mountain high
          G          A*           D    Dsus4  D 
I've seen it rainin' fire in the sky
        G       A*            D  Em(o5) D11 G5/D
Talk to God and listen to the casual    re--ply
               D            Em7   
Rocky mountain high    (Colorado)
G      A*        D                  Em7    G  A*
 Rocky mountain high   (high in Colorado)

[Verse 5]
        D                              Em7                    C    A
Now his life is full of wonder but his heart still knows some fear
     D                            Em7   G  A*
Of a simple thing he cannot comprehend
         D                                 Em7               C    A
Why they try to tear the mountains down to bring in a couple more
         D                       Em7   G  A*
More people, more scars upon the land

[Chorus]
          G        A*                D    Dsus4  D 
But the Colorado rocky mountain high
          G          A*           D    Dsus4  D 
I've seen it rainin' fire in the sky
  G              A*               D            Em(o5) D11 G5/D
I know he'd be a poorer man if he never saw an ea-----gle fly
               D
Rocky mountain high
       G        A*                  D    Dsus4  D
It's a Colorado rocky mountain high
          G          A*           D    Dsus4  D 
I've seen it rainin' fire in the sky
G                  A*           D    Em(o5)D11  G5/D
Friends around the campfire and everybo----dy's high
                 D                  Em7    G  
 Rocky mountain high   (high in Colorado)
       A*        D                  Em7    G  
 Rocky mountain high   (high in Colorado)
      A*        D                  Em7    G  
 Rocky mountain high   (high in Colorado)
      A*        D                  Em7    G  
 Rocky mountain high   (high in Colorado)
      A*        D                  Em7    G  
 Rocky mountain high   (high in Colorado)
      A*        D                  Em7    G     A*[Hold] D[Hold]  
 Rocky mountain high   (high in Colorado)
