          (Take Me Home) Country Roads - Toots and the Maytals
Tabbed by: Bumcivilian

Played in a reggae style, with the chords on the off beat. Use barre chords.
You could use a capo on fret 1, and play G, Em, D, C, etc., but I prefer to use 
barre chords for the beat.

Intro: G# You can also play the low E string, 4th fret, tremolo.

G#            Fm
Almost heaven, West Jamaica,
True ridge mountains
C#               G#
Shining down the River.
All my friends there,
Older than those ridge,
Younger than the mountains,
C#             G#
Blowin' like a breeze

G#                    D#
Country roads, take me home,
       Fm        C# 
To the place I belong:
       G#            D#
West Jamaica, my ol' mama,
        C#            G#
Take me home, country roads.

Fm          D#
I heard her voice
       G#               Fm
In the mornin' hour she calls me,
      C#         G#            D#
Said "Son, you remind me of my home far away,"
    G#               D#            C#
And drivin' down the road I feel a sickness, I sure did,
Oh yesterday, yesterday.

G#               Fm
All my memories, oh, gathered 'round her,
D#           C#              G#
My old lady, stranger to the water.
G#              Fm
Dark and dusty, painted on the sky,
Miss the taste of moonshine,
C#                 G#
Tears gone from my eyes.

G#                    D#
Country roads, take me home,
       Fm        C# 
To the place I belong:
       G#              D#
West Jamaica, my my my mama,
                        C#            G#
Oh won't you take me go home, country roads.

Instrumental: (same as 1st and 3rd verse) G#---Fm---D#---C#-G#- x2

Repeat chorus until fade.
