Rocky mountain high

	     G                         C    D  
He was born in the summer of his 27th year,  
       G                          C  
Comin' home to a place he'd never been before.  
        G           Em                  C                D  
He left yesterday behind him, you might say he was born again,  
          G                          D  
You might say he found a key for every door.  
        G                              C             D  
When he first came to the mountain his life was far away,  
       G                    D 
On the road and hangin' by a song,  
        G                Em            C              D  
But the string's already broken and he doesn't really care,  
         G                                 D  
It keeps changin' fast and it don't last for long.  
        C        D              G          C               D           G  
But the Colorado Rocky Mountain high, I've seen it rainin' fire in the sky.  
    C               D            G                  C  
The shadow from the starlight is softer than a lullaby.  
               G         C                    G         C  
Rocky Mountain high, Colorado, Rocky Mountain high, Colorado.  
   G                                   C               D  
He climbed cathedral mountains, he saw silver clouds below,  
       G                           D 
He saw everything as far as you can see.  
         G               Em                C                  D  
And they say that he got crazy once and he tried to touch the sun,  
  
        G                            D  
And he lost a friend, but kept his memory.  
G                                  C               D  
Now he walks in quiet solitude the forests and the streams,  
        G                    D  
Seeking grace in every step he takes.  
    G                  Em              C            D  
His sight has turned inside himself to try and understand  
    G                                D 
The serenity of a clear blue mountain lake.  
        C        D              G          C               D           G  
And the Colorado Rocky Mountain high, I've seen it rainin' fire in the sky.  
        C               D             G        C  
You can talk to God and listen to the casual reply.  
               G         C                    G       D 
Rocky Mountain high, Colorado, Rocky Mountain high, Colorado.  
        G                               C                     D  
Now his life is full of wonder, but his heart still know some fear  
     G                            D  
Of a simple thing he cannot comprehend.  
         G               Em               C                 D  
Why they try to tear the mountain down to bring in a couple more,  
     G                         D 
More people, more scars upon the land.  
        C        D              G          C               D           G  
And the Colorado Rocky Mountain high, I've seen it rainin' fire in the sky.  
  C              D                G                  C  
I know he'd be a poorer man if he never saw an eagle fly.  
               G            C        D              G  
Rocky Mountain
