B74     E5                          F#m6     D7       B8
1He was born in the summer, of his twenty seventh year;
       E9                    F#m10    D11      B12
2Coming home to a place he'd never been before
   E13
3He left yesterday behind him,
              F#m14     D15     B16
4you might say he was born again
          E17              F#m18      D19     B20
5You might say he found a key for every door

        E21                                F#m22       D23    B24
8When he first came to the mountains, his life was far away;
       E25        F#m26      D27    B28
9On the road and hanging by a song
        E29                               F#m30      D31      B32
10But the string's already broken, and he doesn't really care;
         E33                  F#m34       D35        B36
11It keeps changing fast, and it don't last for long

        A37        B38              E39
14But the Colorado Rocky Mountain high
     A40               B41           E42
15I've seen it raining fire in the sky
    A43               B44            E45             B46    A47
16The shadow from the starlight is softer than a lullaby
      B48        E49   F#m50    A51
17Rocky Mountain high, Colorado
      B52        E53   F#m54    A55     B756

   E57                                   F#m58     D59        B60
21He climbed cathedral mountains, he saw silver clouds below;
       E61             F#m62     D63       B64
22he saw everything as far as you can see
         E65
23And they say that he got crazy once,
       F#m66       D67         B68
24and he tried to touch the sun;
       E69                 F#m70   D71       B72
25And he lost a friend but kept the memory
26
27
       E73                            F#m74      D75       B76
28Now he walks in quiet solitude, the forests and the streams;
        E77        F#m78    D79       B80
29seeking grace in every step he takes
    E81                                  F#m82      D83    B84
30His sight has turned inside himself to try and understand;
    E85             F#m86         D87        B88
31the serenity of a clear blue mountain lake
32

        A89        B90              E91
34And the Colorado Rocky Mountain high
     A92               B93           E94
35I've seen it raining fire in the sky
A95               B96             E97      B98 A99
36talk to God and listen to the casual reply
      B100        E101   F#m102    A103
37Rocky Mountain high, Colorado

        E109
41Now his life is full of wonder,
        F#m110          D111          B112
42but his heart still knows some fear;
     E113            F#m114        D115     B116
43of a simple thing he cannot comprehend
E117
44Why they try to tear the mountains down,
   F#m118         D119      B120
45To bring in a couple more;
     E121            F#m122     D123       B124
46more people, more scars upon the land

        A125        B126              E127
49And the Colorado Rocky Mountain high
     A128               B129           E130
50I've seen it raining fire in the sky
A131                B132                E133            B134     A135
51I know he'd be a poorer man if he never saw an eagle fly
      B136        E137   F#m138    A139
52Rocky Mountain high, Colorado
