I have no silver, no diamonds, or gold,
But I am far richer by the visions I hold;
'Cause I've seen the mountains and I've seen the sea,
I've seen all their beauty and lived a life that is free.

When the cool autumn moonlight shines down through the trees,
No place under heaven would I rather be;
Where the wild birds are flying and the caribou roam,
Many places I've rambled, but this is my home.

When I am weary and it's time to rest,
Please take this old body to the place I love best;
Somewhere on that mountain turn my face to the sea,
And let the wind in the treetops sing me to sleep.

'Cause I've seen the mountains, I've been to the sea,
And all of their beauty is like heaven to me;
Where the wild birds are flying and the caribou roam,
Many places I've rambled, but this is my home.
Where the wild birds are flying and the caribou roam,
Many places I've rambled, but this is my home.

Intro:
[D] [Dsus4] [D] [Dsus4] [D] [Dsus2] [D] [Dsus4] [D]

[D] I have no [G] silver, no diamonds or [D] gold,
But I am far richer by the visions I [A] hold;
'Cause I've seen the [D] mountains and I've been to the [G] sea,
I've seen all their [A] beauty and lived a life that is [D] free.

When the cool autumn moonlight shines down through the [G] trees,
No place under [A] heaven would I rather [D] be;
Where the wild birds are flying and the caribou [G] roam,
Many places I've [A] rambled, but this is my [D] home.

When I am [G] weary and it's time to [D] rest,
Just take this old body to the place I love [A] best;
Somewhere on that [D] mountain turn my face to the [G] sea,
And let the wind in the [A] treetops just sing me to [D] sleep.

'Cause I've seen the [G] mountains, I've been to the [D] sea,
All of their beauty seems like heaven to [A] me;
Where the wild birds are [D] flying and the caribou [G] roam,
Many places I've [A] rambled, but this is my [D] home.
Where the wild birds are flying and the caribou [G] roam,
Many places I've [A] rambled, but this is my [D] home,
Many places I've [A] rambled, but this is my [G] home. [D] [G] [D]
