Take Me Home, Country Roads

by John Denver, Bill Danoff and Taffy Danoff
from Poems, Prayers And Promises (1971)

       G       Em
Almost heaven, West Virginia,
D                     C          G
Blue Ridge Mountains, Shenandoah River.
Life is old there, older than the trees,
younger than the mountains
C                    G
growin' like a breeze.

	       G             D            Em        C
Ref.) Take me home, country roads to the place I belong.
	      G               D              C            G
      West Virginia, Mountain momma, take me home Country roads

       G         Em
All my mem'ries, gather round her,
D             C                G
miner's lady, stranger to blue water.
Dark and dusty, painted on the sky,
misty taste of moonshine
C                 G
teardrop in my eye.

 Rit: Take me home, country...

Bridge)   Em       D            G
	I hear her voice in the morning hour she calls me,
	    C        G              D
	the radio reminds me of my home far away
	    Em               F            C
	and driving down the road I get a feeling
	       G                     D                 D7 
	that I should have been home yesterday, yesterday.
