Country Roads

John Denver

 

D                     Bm

Almost heaven, West Virginia

A                                    G                 D

Blue Ridge Mountains, Shenandoah River

D                          Bm

Life is old there, older than the trees

A                                              G                 D

Younger than the mountains, blowing like a breeze

 

CHORUS:

D                                    A                 Bm     G

Country roads, take me home to the place, I belong

          D                          A                    G                        D

West Virginia, Mountain Mama, take me home, country roads

 

All my mem’ries, gather ’round her

Miner’s lady, stranger to blue water

Dark and dusty, painted on the sky

Misty taste of moonshine, teardrops in my eye

 

CHORUS:

 

BRIDGE:

    Bm           A                 D

I hear her voice, in the mornin’ hours she calls me

          G                 D                 A

The radio reminds me of my home far away

          Bm                   Em                    G

And drivin’ down the road I get the feeling

              D                                A                 A7

That I should have been home yesterday, yesterday

 

CHORUS 2x
