G7

       C                          Dm     A#       G
He was born in the summer, of his twenty seventh year;
       C                          Dm     F
Coming home to a place he'd never been before
   C
He left yesterday behind him,
          Dm         A#     G     
you might say he was born again
          C                      Dm    F
You might say he found a key for every door

        C                                Dm       A#    G
When he first came to the mountains, his life was far away;
       C                Dm   F
On the road and hanging by a song
        C                               Dm      A#      G
But the string's already broken, and he doesn't really care;
         C                           Dm       F     G
It keeps changing fast, and it don't last for long

        F        G              C
But the Colorado Rocky Mountain high
     F               G           C
I've seen it raining fire in the sky
    F               G            C             F   G  F
The shadow from the starlight is softer than a lul la by 
      G        C   Dm    F
Rocky Mountain high, Colorado
      G        C   Dm    F     G7

   C                                   Dm     A#        G
He climbed cathedral mountains, he saw silver clouds below;
       C                    Dm      F
he saw everything as far as you can see
         C
And they say that he got crazy once,
       Dm       A#         G
and he tried to touch the sun;
       C                 Dm       A#   F
And he lost a friend but kept the memory

       C                            Dm      A#       G
Now he walks in quiet solitude, the forests and the streams;
        C              Dm      F
seeking grace in every step he takes 
    C                                  Dm      A#    G
His sight has turned inside himself to try and understand;
      C           Dm         A#        F
the serenity of a clear blue mountain lake

        F        G              C
And the Colorado Rocky Mountain high
     F               G           C
I've seen it raining fire in the sky
F               G             C   F  G  F
talk to God and listen to the casual re ply
      G        C   Dm    F
Rocky Mountain high, Colorado
      G        C   Dm    F     G7

        C
Now his life is full of wonder,
        Dm          A#          G
but his heart still knows some fear;
     C               Dm     A#     F
of a simple thing he cannot comprehend
         C               
Why they try to tear the mountains down,
   Dm         A#      G
To bring in a couple more;
     C            Dm     A#       F
more people, more scars upon the land

        F        G              C
And the Colorado Rocky Mountain high
     F               G           C
I've seen it raining fire in the sky
  F              G                C            F   G  F
I know he'd be a poorer man if he never saw an eag le fly
      G        C   
Rocky Mountain high

        F        G              C
And the Colorado Rocky Mountain high
     F               G           C
I've seen it raining fire in the sky
F                  G            C     G      F
Friends around the campfire and every body's high
      G        C   Dm    F
Rocky Mountain high, Colorado
      G        C   Dm    F     
Rocky Mountain high, Colorado
G        C   Dm    F
