Rocky Mountain High - John Denver

"Rocky Mountain High" by John Denver

He was born in the summer of his 27th year
Coming home to a place he's never been before.
He left yesterday behind him. You might say he was born again.
You might say he found the key to every door.
When he first came to the mountains his life was far away
On the road and hanging by a song.
Well the string is already broken and he doesn't really care.
It changes fast and it don't last too long.
But The Colorado Rocky Mountain High
I've seen it raining fire in the sky.
Shadow from the starlight is softer than a lullaby.
Rocky Mountain High <High Colorado>
Rocky Mountain High <High Colorado>
Well he climbed the feeble mountains.
He saw silver clounds below
He saw everything as far as you can see.
They say that he got crazy once and he tried to touch the sun.
He lost a friend but keep the memory.
Now he walks in quiet solitude thru the forests and the streams
Seeking grace in every step he takes.
His sight has turned inside himself to try and understand
The serenity of clear blue mountain lake.
And The Colorado Rocky Mountain High
I've seen it raining fire in the sky.
Talk to God and listen to the casual reply.
Rocky Mountain High <High Colorado>
Rocky Mountain High <High Colorado>
Now his life if full of wonder
But his heart still knows some fear
Of the simple things he cannot comprehend.
Why they try and tear the mountains down
To bring in a couple more, more people, more scars upon the land.
And The Colorado Rocky Mountain High
I've seen it raining fire in the sky.
You know he'd be a poorer man if he never saw an eagle fly.
Rocky Mountain High
The Colorado Rocky Mountain High
I've seen it raining fire in the sky.
Friends around the campfire and everybody is high.
Rocky Mountain High <High Colorado>
Rocky Mountain High <High Colorado>
Rocky Mountain High <High Colorado>
Rocky Mountain High <High Colorado>
Rocky Mountain High <High Colorado>
Rocky Mountain High <High Colorado>
