[Verse]
D Em She came from the mountains
A D
Rocky Mountains eagle-high
Em She's from where the mountains
A D
Lean up to the sky
Em Now she's back among the Rockies
A D
Where mountain thunders cry
Now the wind from off the
Em A D
Mountains wails a sad goodbye
D Em Once in Colorado Springs at the
A D
Foot of old Pike's Peak
Em I met a Rocky Mountain girl to
A D
My soul her heart let speak
Em We went to tell her parents and
A D
An old grandmother said
Em A If you'll leave these mountains girl
D
You'll wish that you were dead
D Em The next day I took her with me to
A D
My far-off Iowa home
Em Way out on the flatlands where the
A D
Mountain winds don't moan
Em Each footstep we took was happy or
A D
At least it shoudn't been
Em A But I would find her listening for that
D
Same lone mountain wind
[Chorus]
D Em She came from the mountains
A D
Rocky Mountains eagle-high
Em She's from where the mountains
A D
Lean up to the sky
Em Now she's back among the Rockies
A D
Where mountain thunders cry
Now the wind from off the
Em A D
Mountains wails a sad goodbye
[Verse]
D Em A Months passed as fast as antelopes until
D
One fatal dismal dawn
Em I walked to see morning sun shine down
A D
On where she was gone
Em I'd known that lately she'd been
A D
Sad women sometimes get that way
Em I hadn't guessed how much was wrong
A D
Until that fatal day
D Em She had left the weeping letter
A D
Homesick with mountain names
Em She was somewhere in the Rockies and
A D
I knew I'd been to blame
So now in Colorado Springs

Em A D
I wait near old Pike's Peak
Em Where once I met a mountain girl that
A D
Mountain girl I seek
[Chorus]
D Em She came from the mountains
A D
Rocky Mountains eagle-high
Em She's from where the mountains
A D
Lean up to the sky
Em Now she's back among the Rockies
A D
Where mountain thunders cry
Now the wind from off the
Em A D
Mountains wails a sad goodbye
