GET OUT OF DENVER

Live 25 Sep 2003 version


I still remember it was autumn and the moon was shining
My '60 Cadillac was rolling through Nebraska whining
Doing a hundred twenty, man, the fields are bending over
Heading out to ??? we was travelling further
All the pipes was blazing and the spinning wheels were turning turning
My girl beside me, brother brother, she was burning burning

We got hooked up with a Baptist southern funky soul teacher
She had a line on something heavy but we couldn't reach her
We told her that we needed something that could get us going
She pulled out all she had and laid it on the counter showing
All I had to do was lay my money down and pick it up
Yes how was she needed man we lit out in a pickup truck

Go!
Get out of Denver, baby go
Get out of Denver, baby go
Get out of Denver, baby go
Well you're looking like a Commie and you might just be a member
You better get out, baby
Yeah baby

Well the red lights flashing and the sirens were screaming screaming
We had to pinch each other just to see if we was dreaming
Made it to Loveland pass in under less than half an hour
Lord it started drizzling and it turned into a thundershower

Well the rain kept dropping but the Caddy kept on burning rubber
We kept on driving till we ran into some fog cover
Couldn't see a thing, somehow we just kept on, kept on going
We drove all night long and then into the early morning
Fog finally lifted when we looked to see where we were
Staring at a Colorado state policeman trooper cat

Go!
Get out of Denver, baby go
Get out of Denver, baby go
Get out of Denver, baby go
Man you look just like a Commie and you might just be a member
Baby, get out of Denver, baby
Get out of Denver, baby
Get out of Denver, baby
Get out of Denver, baby

Get out of Denver, baby go
Get out of Denver, baby go
Get out of Denver, baby go

Steve, you look just like a Commie and you might just be a member
Get out of Denver, baby
