Whispering Jesse John Denver (klr) D G A Bm G D I often had wandered, in deep contemplation G A D A G Bm A It seems that the mind runs wild when you?re all alone G D G A D The way that it could be, the ways that it should be G A D-A-G A D Things I?d do differently, if I could do them again D G A Bm G D I?ve always loved springtime, the passing of winter G A D A-G Bm A The green of the new leaves and life goin? on G D G A D The promise of morning, the long days of summer G A D A-G A D Warm nights of loving her, beneath the bright stars D G A Bm G D I?m just an old cowboy, from high Colorado G A D A-G Bm A To old to ride anymore, too blind to see G D G-A D I sleep in the city now, away from my mountains G -A D-A-G A D Away from the cabin we always called home D G D G A D I dreamed I left there, on an old palamino G A D-A-G Bm A Whispering Jesse rode right by my side G D G A D I long to hold her, to hear her soft breathing G A D-A-G A D The touch of her cool hand, on my fevered brow G - A - D G - A - D G - A - Bm - G - A A D-A-G A D Whispering Jesse, still rides in the mountains G A D G A D Still sings in the canyons, still lives in my heart .
