Rocky Mountain High Songtext
von John Denver

Rocky Mountain High Songtext

He was born in the summer of his twenty-seventh year
Coming home to a place he′d never been before
He left yesterday behind him
You might say he was born again
You might say he found a key for ev'ry door

When he first came to the mountains his life was far away
On the road and hangin′ by a song
But the string's already broken, and he doesn't really care
It keeps changin′ fast, and it don′t last for long

But the Colorado Rocky Mountain high
I've seen it rainin′ fire in the sky
The shadow from the starlight
Is softer than a lullaby
Rocky Mountain high
Rocky Mountain high


He climbed cathedral mountains
He saw silver clouds below
He saw everything as far as you can see
And they say that he got crazy once
And he tried to touch the sun
And he lost a friend but kept his memory

Now he walks in quiet solitude
The forests and the streams
Seeking grace in every step he takes
His sight has turned inside
Himself to try and understand
The serenity of a clear blue mountain lake

And the Colorado Rocky Mountain high
I've seen it rainin′ fire in the sky
You can talk to God and listen to the casual reply
Rocky Mountain high
Rocky Mountain high

Now his life is full of wonder
But his heart still knows some fear
Of a simple thing, he cannot comprehend
Why they try to tear the mountains down
To bring in a couple more
More people, more scars upon the land


And the Colorado Rocky Mountain high
I've seen it rainin′ fire in the sky
I know he'd be a poor man
If he never saw an eagle fly
Rocky Mountain high
Colorado Rocky Mountain high
I've seen it rainin′ fire in the sky
Friends around the campfire
Everybody′s high

Rocky Mountain high
Rocky Mountain high
Rocky Mountain high
Rocky Mountain high

Peace my friend, thank you

Thank you very much
