capo second fret

G                      Em
Almost heaven, West Virginia
D
Blue ridge mountains
C                      G
Shenandoah river
G                             Em
Life is old there, older than the trees
D
Younger than the mountains
C                         G
Growin like a breeze

.                  G                        D
Country roads, take me home
.            Em             C
To the place I belong
.            G                                D
West Virginia, mountain momma
.                 C                          G
Take me home, country roads

All my memories gathered round her
Miners lady, stranger to blue water
Dark and dusty, painted on the sky
Misty taste of moonshine
Teardrops in my eye






Em              D
I hear her voice
.               G
In the mornin hour she calls me
.        C              G                         D
The radio reminds me of my home far away
.        Em                         F                    C
And drivin down the road I get a feelin
.             G                                          D                D7
That I should have been home yesterday, yesterday

.                  G                        D
Country roads, take me home
.            Em             C
To the place I belong
.            G                                D
West Virginia, mountain momma
.                 C                          G
Take me home, country roads
