																				Verse 1:

D             Bm
 Almost heaven, west virginia
A                       G         D

 Blue ridge mountains, shenandoah river
D                  Bm  
 Life is old there, older than the trees
 A                          G                D 
 Younger than the mountains, growin' like a breeze

Chorus:



    

           D            A

Country roads, take me home
        Bm         G

To the place, I be-long
         D             A

West virginia, mountain momma
         G             D 
Take me home, country roads


Verse 2: (goes like verse 1)


All my memries, gather round her
Miners lady, stranger to blue water
Dark and dusty, painted on the sky
Misty taste of moonshine, teardrop in my eye

Chorus...


Verse 3:

Bm          A             D            
I hear her voice, in the mornin' hours she calls to me
G            D              A

The radio reminds me of my home far away
      Bm             A            G

And drivin down the road I get a feeling
                               A

That I should have been home yesterday, yesterday


Chorus...


Enjoy... (;

View Just Lyrics...

Almost heaven, West Virginia
Blue Ridge Mountains
Shenandoah River,
Life is old there
Older than the trees
Younger than the mountains
Blowin' like the breeze

[Chorus]
Country roads, take me home
To the place I belong
West Virginia, mountain momma
Take me home, country roads

All my memories gathered 'round her
Miner's lady, stranger to blue water
Dark and dusty, painted on the sky
Misty taste of moonshine
Teardrops in my eye

[Chorus]

I hear her voice
In the mornin' hour she calls me
The radio reminds me of my home far away
And drivin' down the road I get a feelin'
That I should have been home yesterday, yesterday

[Chorus:Repeat x2]

Take me home, now country roads
Take me home, now country roads
