Intro: A

A              Gbm
Almost heaven, West Virginia,
E                     D          A
Blue Ridge Mountains, Shenandoah River.
                   Gbm
Life is old there, older than the trees,
E                           D              A
Younger than the mountains, growin' like a breeze. 


A                      E
Country roads, take me home,
       Gbm       D
To the place I belong: 
     A                  E
West Virginia, mountain momma, 
        D             A
Take me home, country roads.


A                Gbm
All my mem'ries, gather 'round her, 
E             D                A
Miner's lady, stranger to blue water.
                Gbm
Dark and dusty, painted on the sky, 
E                         D              A
Misty taste of moonshine, teardrop in my eye. 


A                      E
Country roads, take me home,
       Gbm       D
To the place I belong: 
     A                  E
West Virginia, mountain momma, 
        D             A
Take me home, country roads.


Gbm        E             A 
I hear her voice, in the mornin' hours she calls me, 
    D       A              E
The radio reminds me of my home far away.
    Gbm              G
And drivin' down the road,
        D              A                     E
I get a feelin' that I should have been home yesterday,
      E7
yesterday.


        A              E
Country roads, take me home,
       Gbm       D
To the place I belong: 
     A                  E
West Virginia, mountain momma, 
        D             A
take me home, country roads.


        A              E
Country roads, take me home,
       Gbm       D
To the place I belong: 
     A                  E
West Virginia, mountain momma, 
        D             A
take me home, country roads.


        E             A
Take me home, country roads.
        E                  A
Take me home, down country roads.

  3. Actually from West Virginia, and I did it in -2 and changed the way I sang some parts and I’m proud of myself. I wish people would have taken interest in my state and in this song before Fallout 76.

Please do not ask for strumming patterns. Sharing online how to literally play a song (i.e. strumming, rhythm and tempo) is not allowed by the MPA (Music Publishers Association) because of copyright issues.

Carefully listen to the song and try to really "feel" the rhythm. Once you get the basics of strumming, I can assure you it'll go real quick. Maybe the strumming guide can help you on your way.
