B7     E                          Gbm     D       B
He was born in the summer, of his twenty seventh year;
       E                    Gbm    D      B
Coming home to a place he'd never been before
   E
He left yesterday behind him,
              Gbm     D     B     
you might say he was born again
          E              Gbm      D     B
You might say he found a key for every door


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


        A        B              E
But the Colorado Rocky Mountain high
     A               B           E
I've seen it raining fire in the sky
    A               B            E             B    A
The shadow from the starlight is softer than a lullaby 
      B        E   Gbm    A
Rocky Mountain high, Colorado

   E                                   Gbm     D        B
He climbed cathedral mountains, he saw silver clouds below;
       E             Gbm     D       B
he saw everything as far as you can see
         E
And they say that he got crazy once,
       Gbm       D         B
and he tried to touch the sun;
       E                 Gbm   D       B
And he lost a friend but kept the memory


       E                            Gbm      D       B
Now he walks in quiet solitude, the forests and the streams;
        E        Gbm    D       B
seeking grace in every step he takes 
    E                                  Gbm      D    B
His sight has turned inside himself to try and understand;
    E             Gbm         D        B
the serenity of a clear blue mountain lake


        A        B              E
And the Colorado Rocky Mountain high
     A               B           E
I've seen it raining fire in the sky
A               B             E      B A
talk to God and listen to the casual reply

        E
Now his life is full of wonder,
        Gbm          D          B
but his heart still knows some fear;
     E            Gbm        D     B
of a simple thing he cannot comprehend
E               
Why they try to tear the mountains down,
   Gbm         D      B
To bring in a couple more;
     E            Gbm     D       B
more people, more scars upon the land


        A        B              E
And the Colorado Rocky Mountain high
     A               B           E

A                B                E            B     A
I know he'd be a poorer man if he never saw an eagle fly
