Get Out of Denver

I still remember it was autumn and the moon was shinin'
Our '60 Cadillac was rolling through Nebraska whinin'
Doin' a hundred twenty man the fields was bendin' over
Headin' out for the mountains knowin' we was travellin' further
All the fires was blazin' and the spinnin' wheels were turnin' turnin'
Had my girl beside me, brother brother she was burnin' burnin'

Up walked a Baptist preachin' southern funky school teacher
She had a line on something heavy but we couldn't reach her
We told her that we needed somethin' that would get us goin'
She pulled out all she had and laid it on the counter showin'
All I had to do was lay my money down and pick it up
The cops came bustin' in and man we lit out in a pickup truck

And go
Get out of Denver, better go go
Get out of Denver, better go...
Get out of Denver, better go, go
Get out of Denver
'Cause you look just like a Commie
And you might just be a member
Better
Get out of Denver
Better
Get out of Denver

Well, red lights were flashin' and the sirens were a-screamin' screamin'
We had to pinch each other just to see if we was dreamin'
Made it to Loveland Pass in under less than half an hour
Lord, it started drizzlin' and it turned into a thundershower...
Hey

Oh, yeah

Yeah...yeah

The rain was drivin' but the Caddy kept on burnin' rubber
We kept on drivin' till we ran into some fog cover
We couldn't see a thing but somehow we just kept on goin'
We kept on drivin' all night long an' then into the mornin'
Fog, it finally lifted when we looked to see where we was at
We were starin' at Colorado state policeman trooper cat

And go
Get out of Denver, better, go go
Get out of Denver, better go...
Get out of Denver, better go, go
Get out of Denver
'Cause you look just like a Commie
And you might just be a member
Better
Get out of Denver
Better
Get out of Denver

Better go go
Get out of Denver, better go go
Get out of Denver, better go...
Get out of Denver, better go go
Get out of Denver
'Cause you look just like a Commie
And you might just be a member
Better
Get out of Denver, better go
