Intro: A

       A     F#m             E                      D          A
Almost heaven, West Virginia, Blue Ridge Mountains, Shenandoah River
                   F#m                   E                           D              A
Life is old there, older than the trees, younger than the mountains, blowing like a breeze.

        A              E           F#m       D
Country roads, take me home to the place I belong
        A               E            D             A
West Virginia, mountain mama, take me home, country roads

       A     F#m                  E              D           A
All my memories gather 'round her, miner's lady, stranger to blue water
                F#m                 E                         D              A
Dark and dusty, painted on the sky, misty taste of moonshine, teardrop in my eye

        A              E           F#m       D
Country roads, take me home to the place I belong
        A               E            D             A
West Virginia, mountain mama, take me home, country roads

F#m         E            A
 I hear her voice in the morning hour she calls me,
    D       A              E
the radio reminds me of my home, far away.
    F#m              G            D              A                     E                E7
And driving down the road I get a feeling that I should have been home yesterday, yesterday.

        A              E           F#m       D
Country roads, take me home to the place I belong
        A               E            D             A
West Virginia, mountain mama, take me home, country roads
        A              E           F#m       D
Country roads, take me home to the place I belong
        A               E            D             A
West Virginia, mountain mama, take me home, country roads
        E                    A
take me home, (down) country roads
        E                    A
take me home, (down) country roads
