Country Roads – JOHN DENVER

Guitar Chords
       A              F#m              E 
Almost heaven west virginia blue ridge mountains, 
D         A 
Shenadoah river.  
                  F#m 
Life is old there older than the trees,  
E                           D              A 
Younger than the mountains, growing like a breeze.  
 
        A              E 
Country roads, take me home  
       F#m        D 
To the place, I belong  
        A               E 
West virginia, mountain momma,  
        D             A
Take me home, country roads.  
 
All my memories gather round her,  
Miner's lady, stranger to blue water.  
Dark and dusty painted on the sky  
Misty taste of moonshine  
Tear drop in my eye.  
 
Country roads...
   
F#m          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, 
    F#m              G              D
And drivin' down the road I get the feelin' 
       A
That I should have been home  
E                E7 
Yesterday, yesterday.  
 
Country roads...
