Country Roads
G Em
Almost heaven, West Virginia
D C G
Blue Ridge Mountains, Shanandoah River
G Em
Life is old there older than the trees,
D C G
Younger than the mountains, blowing like the breeze.
Chorus:
G D Em C
Country roads, take me home to the place I belong
G D C G
West Virginia. Mountain mama, take me home, country roads.
G Em
All my memories gather round her,
D C G
Miner's lady a stranger to blue water.
G Em
Dark and dusty are painted on the sky
D C D
Misty taste of moonshine brings tear drops to my eyes.
Cho.
Em D G
I hear her voice in the morning how she calls me,
C G D
Radio reminds me of my home far away.
Em F C
Drivin' down the road I get the feeling
G D D7
That I should've been home yesterday, yesterday.
Cho.
