haggard merle - "colorado"


Merle Haggard
Written By Dave Kirby

[A] There's a place where Mother Na-[A7]ture's [D] got it all together,
She knows just [C#m] when to [D] let wild flowers [E7] bloom, [B7] [E7]
Some-[A]how she always seems to [A7] know ex-[D]actly what she's [A] doin'
And The Lord saw [C#m] fit to [D] furnish elbow [E7] room.

Chorus >>>

Have you [A] ever been [A7] down to Colo-[D] rado ?
I [E7] spend a lot of time there in my [A] mind. [E7]
And if [A] God doesn't [A7] live in Colo-[D] rado,
I'll bet that's where he spends most of his time.

I'd love to be there watching, early in the morning,
The sun comes up and crowns the mountain king.
If by chance you dare to be there, high upon the mountain,
I swear that you can hear the angels sing.

Repeat Chorus >>>>
