He was born in the summer of his 27th year
He left yesterday behind him, you might say he was born again

On the road and hanging by a song
It keeps changing fast and it don't last for long
But the Colorado rocky mountain high
The shadow from the starlight is softer than a lullabye

He saw everything as far as you can see
And he lost a friend but kept his memory
Now he walks in quiet solitude the forest and the streams
His sight has turned inside himself to try and understand

I've seen it raining fire in the sky
Rocky mountain high
Now his life is full of wonder but his heart still knows some fear
Why they try to tear the mountains down to bring in a couple more

I've seen it raining fire in the sky
Rocky mountain high
It's Colorado rocky mountain high
Friends around the campfire and everybody's high
