       D                           Em7            C   A 
He was born in the summer   of his twenty seventh year   
       D                             Em7         G  A 
coming home    to a place he'd never been before  
        D                                Em7
he left yesterday behind him   you might say he was 
          C  A            D  
born again      you might say he found the key 
         Em7    G   A          D 
to every door          when he first came to 
                       Em7           C    A      D
the mountains      his life was far away  on the road 
                 Em7  G A         D
and hangin' by a song     but the string's already broken 
       Em7                C  A          D
and he doesn't really care     it keeps changin' fast 
                      Em7   G  A
and it don't last for long

                  G        A              D
CHORUS#1: But the Colorado Rocky Mountain high   
     G               A           D          G
I've seen it raining fire in the sky    the shadow from 
    A            D             Em7 Dmaj7 G
the starlight is softer than a lul--la---by  
               D     Em7 G      A        D
Rocky Mountain high       Rocky Mountain high

   D                                   Em7             C  A
He climbed cathedral mountains  he saw silver clouds below 
       D                            Em7  G  A         D
he saw everything as far as you can see      and they say 
                                 Em7                 C  A
that he got crazy once    and he tried to touch the sun  
       D                          Em7   G  A
and he lost a friend but kept his memory
       D                            Em7            C       
Now he walks in quiet solitude  the forest and the streams 
A       D                        Em7   G  A
seeking grace   in every step he takes  
    D                                  Em7          C   A
his sight has turned inside himself to try and understand
    D                                 Em7  G  A
the serenity of a clear blue mountain lake

                   G        A              D
CHORUS#2:  And the Colorado Rocky Mountain high    
     G               A           D
I've seen it raining fire in the sky  
G                A             D  Em7 Dmaj7 G
 talk to God and listen to the casual re----ply  
               D   Em7 G      A        D
Rocky Mountain high     Rocky Mountain high

        D                                 Em7
Now his life is full of wonder    but his heart still 
            C  A      D                            Em7  G A
knows some fear  of a simple thing he cannot comprehend    
         D                                   Em7
why they try to tear the mountains down   to bring in 
           C  A       D                          Em7  G  A
a couple more    more poeple more scars upon the land

                     G        A              D
LAST CHORUS: And the Colorado Rocky Mountain high  
     G               A           D
I've seen it raining fire in the sky  
  G              A          
I know he'd be a poorer man 
      D            Em7 Dmaj7 G
if he never saw an ea--gle   fly  
               D    Em7 G A
Rocky Mountain high        
       G        A              D
it's a Colorado Rocky Mountain high    
     G               A           D
I've seen it raining fire in the sky      
G                  A            D    Em7 Dmaj7 G
friends around the campfire and everybo--dy's high         
               D   Em7 G      A        D   Em7  
Rocky Mountain high     Rocky Mountain high           
G      A        D   Em7 G      A ...
 Rocky Mountain High     Rocky Mountain... repeat and fade
