Rocky Mountain High

Lyrics

He 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

There is nothing better than getting away, either on mountain wilderness or on a lake where all is heard is the lapping of the waves and the song birds singing. Time stops and the foolish things we did are soon forgotten, giving ris
This is my s**t.
LOVE this song. A classic, beautiful, poetic picture. Such a talented man.
If you've ever been to a mtn, any mountain, you get it
Rocky Mountain HIGH Colorado...h a h a h a John you were a prophet!

Has to say that, but I love John Denver. I grew up with my mom listening to him, and every time I hear this song or Sunshine on my Shoulders it takes me back to a simple and easy time.
The eagles that live right over the hill from me in city of pittsburgh property r making the national news. Yep John u r rite. I would b a poorer man if I never saw them fly

Man doesn't this remind you of a more high and easy time? Society was more optimistic as the music portrays this! Still enjoying life even though.....
Such a pure simple voice matched with a beautiful message

I love this song and
Many others by him
love John Denver..gone too soon!!
There was never an artist that sang his heart into each and every song. John Denver shared his love for the outdoor wildnerness, beaconing us to re-visit it's beauty. Gone too soon... gone too young. Rest in peace, John.
These are the songs if my childhood. Heading out west every year in a camper for a month.
Saw John Denver in concert....a m a z i n g . . t h o many years ago, left an impression
Awesome song by my favorite solo artist.
A great song from a great American artist. The part about seeing it rain fire in the sky refers a meteor shower John saw one clear night. I go to the great southwest desert for my fire in the sky. Thank you John.
I live in the city of pittsburgh and right over the hill from our place is a nesting pair of eagles. They just had a baby. Denver nailed it perfectly when he said "you know he would be a poorer man if he never saw an eagle fly..." What an amazing site they are...
Great Song...great artist
Creelady51, your son sounds like a fine man. I am sorry you lost him when he was so young. I know that it is always too young when you are a parent of a child who passes away. Although I don't know you or your son, I will probably think of him when I hear Rocky Mountain High.
I have been a fan of John Denver for years and love it whenever I am switching radio stations and chance to hear his music being played.
my son died at 27 years old the song rocky mountain high was played at the memoral. it hit my son to a T-still miss John veery much.
I love John Denver.
John Denver was and always will be a staple of my musical catalog- whenever I need some serenity and peace, just pop in some Denver. Great writer and singer, I believe underrated and underappreci a t e d .
very peaceful
And this has what to do with John Denver?
excelant JD tune
Love you!!!!

good song, it's a shame he forgot to put gas in his airplane, oops, rocky mountain high.

The world was just a better place when John Denver was around....Hi s songs are so full of wonder and appreciation for nature. It still makes me sad that we lost him at such a young age. Thank goodness we all have his music to share and pass down to our children.
Is it me, or does the air feel fresher when this song is played? No matter where you are.
Loved John Denver. One of my most favorite songs of his. Love Annie's song too. Miss you John.

There was a new high school being built in our area and one of the choices for the name of the high school was Rocky Mountain High, but the "older" generation thought that it would not be right to name it that so they decided on another name. Stupid older generation. This is a classic. Love it!
I was just thinking the samething. How much I miss John
denver. Just love this song.

This is such a fitting tribute to magnificence of nature and the Earth and his reverence thereof. It just brings me to tears. Love that John Denver.
