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.
