Rocky Mountain High - John Denver chords

Singer/Band: John Denver


Capo II [D] [Em] [G] [D] [Em] [G] [A7]
He was [D]born in the summer, of his [Em]twenty [C]seventh [A]year;
Coming [D]home to a place he'd never [Em]been [G]before
He [D]left yesterday behind him,
you might [Em]say he was [C]born [A]again
You might [D]say he found a key for [Em]every [G]door
When he [D]first came to the mountains, his [Em]life was [C]far [A]away;
On the [D]road and hanging [Em]by a [G]song
But the [D]string's already broken, and he [Em]doesn't [C]really [A]care;
It keeps [D]changing fast, and it don't [Em]last for [G]long [A]
But the [G]Colorado [A]Rocky Mountain [D]high
I've [G]seen it raining [A]fire in the [D]sky
The [G]shadow from the [A]starlight is [D]softer than a [G]lul [A]la [G]by
Rocky [A]Mountain [D][Em]high, [G]Colorado
Rocky [A]Mountain [D][Em]high, [G]Colorado [A7]
He [D]climbed cathedral mountains, he saw [Em]silver [C]clouds [A]below;
he saw [D]everything as far as [Em]you can [G]see
And they [D]say that he got crazy once,
and he [Em]tried to [C]touch the [A]sun;
And he [D]lost a friend but [Em]kept the [C][G]memory
Now he [D]walks in quiet solitude, the [Em]forests [C]and the [A]streams;
seeking [D]grace in every [Em]step he [G]takes
His [D]sight has turned inside himself to [Em]try and [C][A]understand;
the [D]serenity of a [Em]clear blue [C]mountain [G]lake
And the [G]Colorado [A]Rocky Mountain [D]high
I've [G]seen it raining [A]fire in the [D]sky
[G]talk to God and [A]listen to the [D][G]casual [A]re [G]ply
Rocky [A]Mountain [D][Em]high, [G]Colorado
Rocky [A]Mountain [D][Em]high, [G]Colorado [A7]
Now his [D]life is full of wonder,
but his [Em]heart still [C]knows some [A]fear;
of a [D]simple thing he [Em]cannot [C][G]comprehend
Why they [D]try to tear the mountains down,
To [Em]bring in a [C]couple [A]more;
more [D]people, more [Em]scars [C]upon the [G]land
And the [G]Colorado [A]Rocky Mountain [D]high
I've [G]seen it raining [A]fire in the [D]sky
I [G]know he'd be a [A]poorer man if he [D]never saw an [G]eag [A]le [G]fly
Rocky [A]Mountain [D]high
And the [G]Colorado [A]Rocky Mountain [D]high
I've [G]seen it raining [A]fire in the [D]sky
[G]Friends around the [A]campfire and [D]every [A]body's [G]high
Rocky [A]Mountain [D][Em]high, [G]Colorado
Rocky [A]Mountain [D][Em]high, [G]Colorado
[A]Rocky Mou[D]ntai[Em]n high[G], Colorado
Rocky [A]Mountain [D][Em]high, [G]Colorado . . .
