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.

-7 is really pretty if you’re looking for an alto-appropriate version!

If the chords are to hard just transpose it to -2 and put a capo on the second fret. :)

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.

this name system is bad
