    I've looked everywhere for this song and can't find it, so I finally gave up and
    figured it out myself. She usually plays it on piano, so I figured it out that way
    first and then tried it on guitar to see if it still sounded OK. I think it works.
    If I missed something, please let me know.

    Colorado, Colorado 
    CFCF
    When the world leaves you shivering 
    FG
    And the blizzard blows 
    CGFC
    When the snow flies and the night falls 
    Am
    There's a light in the window 
    FG
    And a place called home 
    FAm
    At the end of the storm 
    Am
    One night on the mountain I was headed for Estes 
    FG
    When the roads turned to ice and it started to snow 
    Am
    Put on the chains in a whirl of white powder 
    FG
    Halfway up to Berthoud near a diner I know 
    C
    And the light burned inside, shining down through the snowfall 
    GFG
    God, it was cold, and the temperature droppin' 
    C
    Went in for coffee and I shivered as I drank it 
    GF
    Warming my hands in the steam as it rose 
    Am
    Sitting there at the counter was a dark-headed stranger 
    AmFG
    Me and the owner and him keeping warm 
    Am
    Nodded hello and I said, "It's a cold one. 
    AmFG
    Looks like there might be a blizzard tonight," 
    C
    And "Yes," said the owner, "There's a big storm on the mountain. 
    GFG
    Good thing we're open; we could be here for hours. 
    C
    There's nothing for miles, and it's too late to get to Denver. 
    GFG
    Better not try for the summit tonight." 
    CG
    And the snow fell 
    FC
    And the night passed 
    CFAm
    And I talked to the strangers 
    AmFGAm
    As the blizzard blew 
    Am
    Me and the stranger, you know I don't talk to strangers 
    FG
    I'm a private sort of person, but a blizzard is a blizzard 
    Am
    And somehow I found myself saying you'd left me 
    FG
    Telling him everything I wanted to say to you. 
    C
    You know how it is when you can talk to a stranger 
    GFG
    Someone you're quite sure you'll never see again 
    C
    Soon we were talkin' and laughin' and drinkin'. 
    GFG
    He said, "You must know you're too good for him." 
    CG
    And the snow fell 
    FC
    And the night passed 
    CFAm
    And I talked to the strangers 
    AmFGAm
    And the blizzard blew 
    Am
    The stranger said, "Love, it can cry you a river. 
    AmFG
    Me, I'm a loner, 'cause I can't take the heartache. 
    Am
    Sometimes I'm a fighter when I get too much whiskey. 
    AmFG
    Here, have a little whiskey; pretend you don't give a damn. 
    C
    My cabin's up here on the side of the mountain. 
    GFG
    You can go up there and sleep through the blizzard." 
    C
    I put on my parka, said goodbye to the owner, 
    GFC
    Followed the stranger through the snow up the mountainside. 
    Am
    Woke in the morning to the sun on the snow 
    AmFG
    My car was buried in six feet of snowdrift 
    Am
    They dug me out, just the owner and the stranger 
    AmFG
    Sent me on my way when the snowplow had been by 
    C
    And the roads were all clear, and the sun on the mountains 
    GFG
    Sparkled like diamonds on the Peak-to-Peak Highway 
    C
    Then I knew that I would get over you 
    DmGC
    Knew you could leave me, but you'd never break me
