The Lyrics

Written after Marc Cohn was carjacked in Denver
Got in my rental car,
And pulled to the light.
Driving around in the land that's a mile high,
In the middle of the night.
Come to the intersection,
And the light was still red.
When a guy out of nowhere,
Shot me in the head.

I was carjacked in Denver,
Driving a rental someone really wanted to steal.
Carjacked in Denver,
You have no idea how cold a bullet feels.

Saw a ghost of John Denver,
Singing Rocky Mountain High.
I felt like Nancy Kerrigan,
I kept yelling "Why?"
Now I'm in an ambulance,
And the sirens blaring through my head,
The paramedic looked at my blood and said,
"You're lucky you're not dead."

(chorus)

They've got ski shops on the corner,
They've got mountains that touch heaven,
And Bucktooth Elway would be happy to see you...
If you wore the number Seven,
I just got shot in Denver

Now I'll probably never come back,
If I do, it won't be night.
And if I'm driving around,
You won't see me at no red light.
So to you Mr Carjacker,
If you can hear my tune,
You better be a little faster than me,
Or...I'll shoot you too!!!

(Chorus)

Got in my rental car,
And pulled to the light.
Driving around in the land that's a mile high,
In the middle of the night.
Driving around in the land that's a mile high,
In the middle of the night.

Denver is a scary place to drive at night. It's bad enough in the day. And I empathize with Mr. Cohn, because I had my car stolen in broad daylight at a "highly secure" apartment complex. I hope he is okay. BTW, BjHerb, good song.
