Capo on 2nd fret

[Verse 1]
 
G                       Em                          D                                          C                 G
 Almost Heaven;   West Virginia,   Blue Ridge Mountains, Shenandoah River.

G                          Em                               D
 Life is old there, older than the trees, younger than the mountains,

      C                  G
Growin' like a 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.
 
[Verse 2]
 
G               Em                D                 C              G
 All my memories gather round her, miner's lady, stranger to blue water.

G                             Em                           D
 Dark and dusty, painted on the sky, misty taste of moonshine,

  C                       G
Teardrop in my eye.
 
[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.
 
[Bridge]
 
Em                   D                  G
   I hear her voice in the morning hour she calls me,

       C              G                      D
The radio reminds me of my home far away.

           Em                       F                  C
And driving down the road I get a feeling

              G                                      D                          D7
That I should have been home yesterday, yesterday.
 
[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                        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.

                   D                                  G                      D                                 G
Take me home, down country roads; take me home, down country roads
