This is a great song. And the lyrics really hit home, especially after traveling 3,000+ miles across America. πŸŒŠβ˜€οΈπŸŒ΅ πŸš΄πŸΌβ€β™‚οΈ β›°πŸ•πŸžπŸŒŠ My mom used to play this song when I was a little kid growing up along the Susquehanna River so it’s always been kind of special to me. But now I get it in a whole new way. Link to play the actual song is at the very bottom. β¬‡οΈπŸ˜Š

β€œHe was born in the summer of his 27th 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 every door

When he first came to the mountains his life was far away

On the road and hanging by a song

But the string’s already broken and he doesn’t really care

It keeps changing 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 lullabye

Rocky mountain high (Colorado)

Rocky mountain high (Colorado)

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 the memory

Now he walks in quiet solitude the forest 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 raining fire in the sky

Talk to God and listen to the casual reply

Rocky mountain high (Colorado)

Rocky mountain high (Colorado)

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 poorer man if he never saw an eagle fly

Rocky mountain high

It’s a Colorado rocky mountain high

And I’ve seen it rainin’ fire in the sky

Friends around the campfire and everybody’s high

Rocky mountain high (Colorado)

Rocky mountain high (Colorado)”
