Get Out of Denver
by Bob Seger



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 girl beside me - brother, brother - she was burning, burning

Up walked a baptist preaching, southern, funky school teacher
She had a line on 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 counter showing
All I had to do was lay my money down and pick it up
Cops came busting in and then we lit out in a pickup truck 'n'

Go! Get out of Denver, baby - Go! Go!
Get out of Denver, baby - Go-oooh!
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, baby
Get out of Denver, baby - Get out of Denver

Well, red lights are flashing and the sirens were a 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 thunder shower

The rain kept driving, but the Caddy kept on burning rubber
We kept on driving 'til we ran into some fog cover
We couldn't see a thing - 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 a Colorado state policeman trooper's hat 'n'

Go! Get out of Denver! He said, "Go Go!"
Get out of Denver, baby - Go-oooh!
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, baby
Get out of Denver, baby
Get out of Denver, baby - Go!
Ahhh, Go! Go! Go! Go!
Hey! - Go-oooh!
Ah, better better go - Go! Go! Go!
'Cause you look just like a commie
And you might just be a member, baby
Get out of Denver, baby - Go!
