Key G

Jeremiah Johnson made his way into the mountains,
Bettin' on forgettin' all the troubles that he knew.
The trail was wide and narrow, the eagle or the sparrow
Showed the path he was to follow, as it flew

 (D)               (C)               (G)
A mountain man is a lonely man and he leaves a lot behind
  (D)                (C)                (G)  
It ought to have been different, but you often times will find
        (A)                         (D)
That the story doesn't always go the way you had in mind
(D)        (A)           (Em)
Jeremiah's story was that kind
(D)        (A)           (Em)
Jeremiah's story was that kind


An Indian says you search in vain for what you cannot find
He says you found a thousand ways of runnin' down your time
An Indian didn't scream it, he said it in a song

And he's never been known to be wrong

He's never been known to be wrong


The way that you wander is the way that you choose
The day that you tary, is the day that you lose
Sunshine or thunder, A man will always wonder
Where the fair wind blows

Jeremiah Johnson made his way into the mountains,
He was bettin' on forgettin' all the troubles that he knew...

This is nothing like the original song.
I'll try to piece together the chords to match the video.

Added album cover and corrected verses and chords to match the video version. Still working on the missing chords. Any help is appreciated. :)

I guess opinions make the world go around. I put it in D which is best for my voice. If it is in G, then I don't agree with the second verse, specially the C chord/
I think the verses are correct. I transcribed them from the video...altho, the last verse should only be the first two lines; on that I agree.
