Take Me Home Country Road by John Denver

    Verse 1

    A              F#m
    Almost heaven, West Virginia,
    E                     D          A
    Blue Ridge Mountains, Shenandoah River.
    A                  F#m
    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
           F#m       D
    To the place I belong:
            A               E
    West Virginia, mountain momma,
            D             A
    Take me home, Country Roads.

    Verse 2

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


    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
    And drivin' down the road 
            D              A                     E                E7
    I get a feelin' that I should have been home yesterday, yesterday.


            E             A
    Take me home, Country Roads,
            E             A
    Take me home, Country Roads.
