COUNTRY ROADS By John Denver

Matellmon did a great job tabbing this song, and the lyrics but 
John actually sang it in the key of A






    A           F#m
ALMOST HEAVEN, WEST VIRGINIA
    E                   D         A
BLUE RIDGE MOUNTAINS, SHENANDOAH RIVER
                    F#m 
LIFE IS OLD THERE, OLDER THAN THE TREES
  E                            D            A
YOUNGER THAN THE MOUNTAINS, BLOWING LIKE A BREEZE


  A                    E
COUNTRY ROAD, TAKE ME HOME
       F#m        D
TO THE PLACE, I BELONG
         A                E
WEST VIRGINIA, MOUNTAIN MOMMA
         D            A
TAKE ME HOME COUNTRY ROAD


        A         F#m 
ALL MY MEMORIES GATHER ROUND HER
 E              D               A
MINERS LADY, STRANGER TO BLUE WATER
                 F#m
DARK AND DUSTY, PAINTED ON THE SKY
 E                          D             A
MISTY TASTE OF MOONSHINE, TEARDROP IN MY EYE


    A                  E
COUNTRY ROAD, TAKE ME HOME
       F#m        D
TO THE PLACE, I BELONG
         A                E
WEST VIRGINIA, MOUNTAIN MOMMA
         D            A
TAKE ME HOME COUNTRY ROAD


  F#m        E             A
I HEAR HER VOICE, IN THE MORNING HOURS SHE CALLS ME
     D        A             E
THE RADIO REMINDS ME OF MY HOME FAR AWAY
    F#m              G               D
AND DRIVING DOWN THE ROAD I GET THE FEELING
         A                    E         E7
THAT I SHOULD HAVE BEE HOME YESTERDAY, YESTERDAY


    A                  E
COUNTRY ROAD, TAKE ME HOME
       F#m        D
TO THE PLACE, I BELONG
         A                E
WEST VIRGINIA, MOUNTAIN MOMMA
         D            A
TAKE ME HOME COUNTRY ROAD


        E                  A
TAKE ME HOME, DOWN COUNTRY ROADS

        E                  A
TAKE ME HOME, DOWN COUNTRY ROADS
