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
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 strings already broken and he doesn't really care
It keeps changin' fast, and it don't last for long

It's a Colorado Rocky Mountain high, I've seen it raining fire in the sky
The shadows from the starlight are softer than a lullaby
Rocky Mountain high, in Colorado, Rocky Mountain high

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 that 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 stream
Seeking grace in every step he takes
His sight is 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
You can talk to God and listen to the casual reply
Rocky Mountain high, in Colorado, Rocky Mountain high

Now his life is full of wonder, but his heart still knows some fear
of the simple things he can not comprehend.
Why they try to tear the mountains down, to bring in a couple more
More people, more scars upon the land

It's the Colorado Rocky Mountain high, I've seen it raining fire in the sky
I know he'd be a poorer man if he never saw an eagle fly
Rocky mountain high, it's the Colorado Rocky Mountain high
I've seen it raining fire in the sky
Friend around the camp fire and everybody's high
Rocky Mountain high, Rocky Mountain high x2
