Get Out of Denver
[Version 1]

I still remember it was autumn and the moon was shinin
My '60 Cadillac was rollin through Nebraska whinin
Doin a hundred twenty man the fields was bendin over
Hay down our motor mount and snowin, we was travelin further
All the pipes were blazin and the screamin wheels turnin, turnin
Had my girl beside me brother, brother she was burnin, burnin

Break A hooked up babtist preachin souther funky school teacher
She had a line on somethin heavy but we couldn't reach her
We told her that we needed something that would get us going
She pulled out all she had and layed it on the counter showin
All I had to do was lay my money down and pick it up
Asked how much she needed, man, we lit out in a pickup truck & GO

Get outta Denver better go, go
Get outta Denver better go-ooooh
Get outta Denver better go, go
Get outta Denver cause you like just like a commie and you might just be a member, better
Get outta Denver, better, get outta Denver
Well, red lights are flashin and the sirens were a 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 thunder shower

The rain kept drivin but the Caddy kept on burnin rubber
We kept on drivin til we ran into some fog cover
We couldn't see a thing somehow we just kept on goin
We kept on drivin all night long and then into the mornin
Fog had finally lifted when we looked to see where we was at
We're sailin in a column had a state policeman trooper's hat

Get outta Denver better go, go
Get outta Denver better go-ooooh
Get outta Denver better go, go
Get outta Denver cause you like just like a commie and you might just be a member, better
Get outta Denver, better, get outta Denver

Scat................... go, go
Scat................... go-ooooh
Scat................... go, go
Scat................... cause you like just like a commie and you might just be a member, better
Get outta Denver, better GO!


[Version 2]

I still remember it was autumn and the moon was shining
Our 60 Cadillac was roaring through Nebraska whining
Doing 120 man the fields was bending over
Heading up for the mountains knowing we was traveling further
All the fires were blazing and the spinning wheels were turning turning
Had my girlfriend beside me, brother, she was burning burning

I walked up back to speak to this southern funky school teacher
She had a lot of something heavy but we couldn't reach her
We told her that we needed something that would get us going
She pulled out all she had and laid it on the table showing
All I had to do was lay my money down and pick it up
The cops came busting in and then we lit out in a pickup truck

Go! Get out of Denver, baby, go, go
Get out of Denver, baby, go
Get out of Denver, baby, 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, all red lights were flashing and the sirens were screaming screaming
We had to pinch each other just to see if we were dreaming
Made it to lovely Pass in under less than half an hour
Lord, it started drizzling and it turned into a thundershower, oh!

The rain was driving but the Caddy kept on burning rubber
We kept on driving till we ran into some fog cover
We couldn't see a thing but somehow we just kept on going
We kept on driving all night long and then into the morning
Fog had finally lifted when we looked to see where we was at
We're staring at Colorado state policeman trooper cat

Go! Get out of Denver, baby, go, go
Get out of Denver, baby, go
Get out of Denver, baby, 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

Go! Get out of Denver, baby, go, go
Get out of Denver, baby, go
Get out of Denver, baby, 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 Denverback to top
Long Song Comin'
Politician 'bout to make his speech
Signal for attention, please
Then he shuffled his notes
And wiped his sweating brow
I looked at my friend next to me
And we don't dare agree
Before this is over
We'll wish we woulda left right now

'Cause it sounds like a long song comin'
And it looks like he might throw in a little dancin', too
Yes, it sounds like a long song comin'
And buddy, listen buddy
We got better things to listen to

Lady from a church bizarre
Was smiling from her head to her feet
All the way down to her feet
That she couldn't see
She started speeking her piece
I said "Stop, Wait a minute, please
Before you start talkin'
I wish you'd please listen to me."

'Cause it sounds like a long song comin'
And though some of the things you say might be true
It still sounds like a long song comin'
And baby, listen lady, I got better things to listen to
Yes, it sounds like a long song comin'
And it looks like you might throw in a little dancin', too
Yes, it sounds like a long song comin'
And buddy, listen buddy, I got better things to listen to
Say, so it sounds like a long song comin'
And it sounds like some just might be true
Still it sounds like a long song comin'
And buddy, listen buddy, I got better things to listen to
And buddy, listen buddy, we got better things to listen toback to top
Need Ya
I used to be a very carefree man,
A loving man of the world.
Yeah, I would still be except for the time
When I met ya, little girl.

Say, I've tried and I've tried but I just can't.
You sure got a hold on me.
Ah, your good, good lovin' is makin' me faint,
Mama, please don't set me free.

Because I need ya, need ya, need ya, need ya, yeah.
(Need ya, need ya)
Oh, need ya, need ya, need ya, need ya, yeah.

You got that kinda air that drives me insane
And sometime ya sure got me new.
Ah, sometimes I feel like knockin' you down,
But I would never pull that scene.

Though I get tired, I know that you know
That I'd never do you wrong.
'Cause when it's late and I feel down, turn the lights on low
And I will hold things in my soul.

'Cause I need ya, need ya, need ya, need ya, yeah.
(Need ya, need ya)
I'm gonna need ya, need ya, need ya, need ya, yeah.

Cross of Gold
You can change the way you live
You can make it ?
You can turn it up or down
You can change the things you're told

You can crucify the word on a cross of gold
You can crucify the word on a cross of gold
Oh oh oh

You can lie to every face
You can use a stranglehold
You can lose or win the chase
You can sell your very soul

You can crucify the word on a cross of gold
You can crucify the word on a cross of gold
Oh oh oh

You can steal the things you need
You can keep the people down
You can take the best there is
To the shelters underground

You can crucify the word on a cross of gold
You can crucify the word on a cross of goldback to top
U.M.C. (Upper Middle Class)
I wanna be a lawyer
Doctor or professor
A member of the UMC

I want an air conditioner
Cottage on the river
And all the money I can see

I wanna drive a Lincoln
Spend my evenings drinking
The very best burgandy

I want a yacht for sailing
Private eye for tailing
My wife if She's a bit too free

I've been told ever since a boy
that's what one aught to be
A part of the UMC

I want a pool to swim in
Fancy suits to dress in
Some stock in GM and GE

An office in the city
Secretary pretty
Who'll take dictation on my knee

I want a paid vacation
Don't want to have to ration
A thing with anyone but me

And if there's war or famine
Promise I'll examine
The details if they're on TV

I'll pretend to be liberal but I'll still support the GOP,
As part of the UMC

I wanna be a lawyer
Doctor or professor
A member of the UMCback to top
Seen a Lot of Floors
Seen a lot of walls, seen a lot of halls
Got a lot of calls, late at night
Seen a lot of doors, seen a lot of floors
Done a lot of chores, late at night

So don't come in here walkin'
So innocent and talkin'
Tryin' to make conversation
Cause I know and you know
That I know what you're here for

Don't tell me 'bout your father
Your sister or your mother
Your great big brother
Not tonight

Don't want to hear about your hang ups
Don't want know your favorite movies
Don't want to hear about other rock bands
Not tonight

So don't come in here walkin'
So innocent and talkin'
Tryin' to make conversation
'Cause you know and I know
That I know what you're here for

Seen a lot of floors
Seen a lot of doors
Done a lot of chores

20 Years from Now
Jan is tired of her inhaler
When she moved here from back east
Still she said she'd stay beside me
And she brought me a new peace

I saw her smilin' in the summer sun
I saw her 'neath the quiet moon
I knew right then I'd never leave her
She had taken me so soon
When she went
She went

And we settled near the blue lagoon
Listened all night to the wind
Sometimes we laughed, sometimes we cried
Sometimes we just went for a swim
All that time my love kept growing, growing, growing
Made me feel so warm inside
All the time her smile glowing
And it gave me so much pride
When she went, yeah when she went

Yeah, now we sit here in the evening
And listen to the crickets sing
And we'll be here twenty years from now
And we'll hear the crickets sing
And then she'll go, oh, oh, oh, oh
She'll goback to top
All Your Love
Babe you know I love ya

When I try to let it show

All your love, all your love
Baby, I want all your love
All your love, all your love
Baby, I want all your love

Don't keep me guessin'
Don't go 'round and messin'

Don't say maybe
Don't drive me crazy
Come and let me show you my wheels

All your love, all your love
Baby, I want all your love
All your love, all your love
Baby, I want all

Can't wait much longer than tonight
Please don't stop me

All night to the morning
Baby, let your little love light glow
