Rocky Mountain High Ukulele Chords

[D] [Em] [G] [D] [Em] [G] [A7]

He was [D]born in the summer, of his [Em]twenty [C]seventh [A]year;
Coming [D]home to a place he’d never [Em]been be[G]fore
He [D]left yesterday behind him,
you might [Em]say he was [C]born a[A]gain
You might [D]say he found a key for [Em]every [G]door

When he [D]first came to the mountains, his [Em]life was [C]far a[A]way;
On the [D]road and hanging [Em]by a [G]song
But the [D]string’s already broken, and he [Em]doesn’t [C]really [A]care;
It keeps [D]changing fast, and it don’t [Em]last for [G]long [A]

But the [G]Colorado [A]Rocky Mountain [D]high
I’ve [G]seen it raining [A]fire in the [D]sky
The [G]shadow from the [A]starlight is [D]softer than a [G]lul[A]la[G]by
Rocky [A]Mountain [D]high, [Em]Colo[G]rado
Rocky [A]Mountain [D]high, [Em]Colo[G]rado [A7]

He [D]climbed cathedral mountains, he saw [Em]silver [C]clouds be[A]low;
he saw [D]everything as far as [Em]you can [G]see
And they [D]say that he got crazy once,
and he [Em]tried to [C]touch the [A]sun;
And he [D]lost a friend but [Em]kept the [C]memo[G]ry

Now he [D]walks in quiet solitude, the [Em]forests [C]and the [A]streams;
seeking [D]grace in every [Em]step he [G]takes
His [D]sight has turned inside himself to [Em]try and [C]under[A]stand;
the se[D]renity of a [Em]clear blue [C]mountain [G]lake

And the [G]Colorado [A]Rocky Mountain [D]high
I’ve [G]seen it raining [A]fire in the [D]sky
[G]talk to God and [A]listen to the [D]casu[G]al [A]re[G]ply
Rocky [A]Mountain [D]high, [Em]Colo[G]rado
Rocky [A]Mountain [D]high, [Em]Colo[G]rado [A7]

Now his [D]life is full of wonder,
but his [Em]heart still [C]knows some [A]fear;
of a [D]simple thing he [Em]cannot [C]compre[G]hend
Why they [D]try to tear the mountains down,
To [Em]bring in a [C]couple [A]more;
more [D]people, more [Em]scars u[C]pon the [G]land

And the [G]Colorado [A]Rocky Mountain [D]high
I’ve [G]seen it raining [A]fire in the [D]sky
I [G]know he’d be a [A]poorer man if he [D]never saw an [G]eag[A]le [G]fly
Rocky [A]Mountain [D]high

And the [G]Colorado [A]Rocky Mountain [D]high
I’ve [G]seen it raining [A]fire in the [D]sky
[G]Friends around the [A]campfire and [D]every [A]body’s [G]high
Rocky [A]Mountain [D]high, [Em]Colo[G]rado
Rocky [A]Mountain [D]high, [Em]Colo[G]rado
[A]Rocky Moun[D]tain [Em]high, [G]Colorado
Rocky [A]Mountain [D]high, [Em]Colo[G]rado
