    Take Me Home, Country Roads

    John Denver

     

    Strum:  B   D   D U D U

            1 + 2 + 3 + 4 +  

     

    Intro: / G - - - / x4

     

    G (2)             Em (2)

       Almost heaven,    West Virginia

    D (2)                      C         G (2)

       Blue Ridge Mountains, Shenandoah River

    G (2)                 Em (2)

       Life is old there, older than the trees

    D (2)                         C              G

    Younger than the mountains, blowing like a breeze

     

    Chorus:

                  G (2)           D (2)

    Country roads,   take me home

                 Em (2)      C (2)

    To the place    I belong

             G (2)              D (2)

    West Virginia,    mountain momma

                  C (2)           G (2)

    Take me home,   country roads

     

    G (2)              Em (2)

       All my memories   gather 'round her

    D (2)               C              G (2)

       Miner's lady, stranger to blue water

    G (2)             Em (2)

       Dark and dusty,    painted on the sky

    D (2)                      C              G

    Misty taste of moonshine, teardrops in my eyes

     

    Chorus

     

    Em            D             G (2)

      I hear her voice, in the morning hours she calls to me

         C           G          D (2)

    The radio reminds me of my home far away

          Em                 F          

    And drivin' down the road I get a

    C                G

    feeling that I should have been home

    D (2)             D7 (2, hold 2nd measure)

    yesterday, yesterday

     

    Chorus x2

     

                 D (2)               G (2)

    Take me home   down country roads

                 D (2)               / G - - - / - - (hold) /

    Take me home   down country roads
