Bob Seger - Get Out Of Denver Lyrics




I still remember it was autumn and the moon was shinin'
Our 60 Cadillac was roarin' through Nebraska whinin'
Doin' 120 man the fields was bendin' over
Headin' out for the mountains knowin' we was traveling further
All our fires were blazing 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 somethin' 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 then we lit out in our pickup truck 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
Better Get out of Denver
Better Get out of Denver

Well red lights were 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 thundershower

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 somehow we just kept on goin'
We kept on drivin' all night long and then into the mornin'fog.
It finally lifted when we looked to see where we was at
We're starin' at a Colorado state policeman trooper cat

And go Get out of Denver he said 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

Oh better better better go
Hey go
Ah better better go go go go
Cause you look just like a commie
And you might just be a member better
Get out of Denver better go!

    I just knew you'd comment lol Still raining UK

    Kimberly Gabaldon

    Stuart McGoverne 😆 (Yeah, but do you like the song?)

    Still raining? It's finally nice in Lakewood, where I'm house sitting, but now I'm half sick on antibiotics for a bad tooth 😥.

    This was my go-to song when I was getting ready to move and needed some pep. I don't do drugs, but was still trying to get away from the authorities in Denver, because Denver has a 6-foot limit on snakes, and my pythons were getting big and were pushing that. (Now they're 8 1/2 feet). Stay dry, Stuart. I'll see you on Bernie's threads 💖💕🌸

  16. Donald Dawkins

    You look just like a commie and you might just be a member . Great lyric

    why isn't this on spotify :'( can only find the live version!

    rockchick2112

    Apparently Seger is embarrassed by his previous albums, and won't allow them to be remastered or even rereleased. Though in a recent interview he said Jack White had been trying to convince him to do so.

  20. Brian Crain aka Cain

    ...Great song...Great lyrics...

  21. Music

    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 out 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 preachin' 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
    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, 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 flashing and the sirens were a-screaming screaming
    We had to pinch each other just to see if we were dreaming
    Made it to Loveland Pass in under less than half an hour
    Lord, it started drizzling and it turned into a thundershower
    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
    It finally lifted when we looked to see where we was at
    We're staring at a Colorado state policeman trooper cat

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

  22. Chad Finley

    My favorite Bob Seger song,.... tough pick from all of them.

  23. John Baldwin

    Moter city baby

  24. James Michael

    Perhaps my favorite BS Tune. Now this was certainly a Chuck Berry Inspired tune, and it rocked, the way R&R is supposed to move you.

    Grab your Queen and start Lindy Hoppin' R&R never forgets!

  27. Scotty ColoradoKid

    Ya just cant make it over Loveland Pass in 'under less than half an hour'   takes about 90 minutes ;-))  He wrote this in '73; The Tunnels that spare us from having to drive over Loveland Pass opened in'74, which is when the song was released.....Bobby starts off in a Caddy, but all of the sudden he be in a Pickup Truck.....Aint no Commies here man....Try singing this in a Kareoke bar !!   Better take a deeeep breath!

    Things to do in Denver when you're dead...

  66. Derek Suddreth

    Great song, but I prefer the "Live Bullet" version. In fact, the whole "Live Bullet" album contains most of the Recommended Daily Allowance of Energy you'll need to get you through the day (and night).

    Andrés64B

    Derek Suddreth Best live album ever!

    Harold Mackie

    yeah Good in Studio,Great LIVE

    Jim Coleman

    Agreed, I like "Looking Back' studio version, but LOVE it on Live Bullet !

    Lorraine Gagnon

    I was at day two of the recording of Live Bullet, by far the best kick ass rock and roll concert I have ever been to...The album brings me back to it often...

  67. Scott Ferguson

    "All of Chuck's children are out there playing his licks"

  68. steven wirth

    I grew up with this song and actually grew up in Denver to boot ......Yes it does rock ....

  69. Robin Cowhy

    Awesome music!

  70. redcaddiedaddie

    There should be a law that any person in America under the age of 35 is REQUIRED to listen to this song at least 10 times!!
    ( Looks awestruck & scratches head: OH! So THIS is what REAL ROCK & ROLL is supposed to sound like!!!!!! ) Love you forever, Bob!!

  71. Seamus Jones

    cuz u look jus like a commie and u might jus be a member

  72. Brenda Jones

    hell yes

  73. Brenda Jones

    oh yyes.

  74. Brenda Jones

    this is the man.

  75. Charlie Holmes

    I was 17, living in Denver (I LOVE THAT CITY) when I first heard this song. I was working at the Lowry AFB Rec Center & my boss asked me to babysit Jake the Cat while he was away. On the 2nd night, he came by the apartment, dropped a $20 bill & a gram of toot on the coffee table, talked to Jake for a minute & then he left. I snorted up the whole gram, smoked a couple bong hits, watched the original Godspell and then put on Live Bullet. When I got to Get Out of Denver, I wanted to learn the lyrics. I played that song over & over for hours (yes, of course, I was up ALL night!), even at 16 RPM, until I had 'em down. I have never forgotten them, and I STILL love the song.........damn near 40 years later.

    keep on rollin 79

    Wish my boss would leave me some toot on Fridays in my paycheck

    Kimberly Gabaldon

    I played it over and over when Denver got too crowded in 2016 and I wanted to move. It fueled my motivation.

    paul allen

  81. Tom Engel

    Fan for life. First dance I ever went to,first rock&.roll band I ever heard, Detroit Catholic Central H.S.1966. Bob Seger and the Last Heard."East Side Story" just came out on the radio. Detroit has been blessed with many great rockers, Seger is as good as it gets..

  82. Ben G

    My dad has been a fan forever so this is the kind of music I was raised on. I finally got to see him live in 2014

  83. Austin Raftery

    Its not a chuck berry clone, its more of a homage to him.

    keep on rollin 79

    Austin Raftery absolutely

    cv4wheeler

    It's called Rock' 'n Roll!

    Son of JoJoGunne

    Austin Raftery Truth!

  84. Bowser1948

    Have  look at the cover by" Eddie & The Hot Rods"  kinda speeds this up a bit

    Ronna Carmicle

    Bob seger rocks 4-ever

  85. Bruce Beasley

    This man put on one hell of a concert, he had over 3/4 of Freedom Hall up in the aisles dancing back in the 80's, did the same at Rupp Area... He is the man

    Hooligan 77

    Yes sir he did! My first concert was in 84 or 85 at Freedom Hall! Nobody tops Bob live!

    caverken

    saw Seger open for KISS at freedom hall. Can not remember the year but he did the Live Bullet album. Thanks for reminding me that I was there.

  86. mcpaplus

    I have loved this song for ages, but recently evaluated the lyrics and am perplexed by the apparent change in mobile conveyance.  Crossing Nebraska he is evidently in a 60 Caddy...when he scores from the  southern funky school teacher they then "lit out in a pick up truck", yet later the Caddy is again burning rubber...????

  87. mr. warmth

    i gotta go for my walk i will leave i-mac runnin but yo cant comment

  88. mr. warmth

    gotta piss

  89. juliekazak

    seger rox.

  90. Neg Ative

    Way to rip off "Johnny B Good"

    RD400D78

    go ask bob seger about it. he'll fucking tell you where it came from. if you dont know the workings of music or have a firm grasp on how to play an instrument you really shouldnt speak on matters you know nothing about.

    Harold Mackie

    rip off,this is faster than johnny B Good

    Harold Mackie

    and it's not about a guitar player

    Lorraine Gagnon

    The song was written by Bob Seger while he was touring with BTO before he broke out Nation wide. He needed a power song to get the crowd in the limited time he had on stage opening for them. The song is about the mountain States response to leftist radicals and youth culture at the time. It is know as the song Chuck Berry never wrote....

    Atlas King

    You seem nice.

  91. nancy green

    Love  it!!!!

  92. bob masotta

    Always loved his version of this tune.

    RD400D78

    his version? he wrote it but it is a chuck berry clone.

  93. Snowcenti

    don't worry seger! I'm getting out of Denver in the morning, Detroit here I come!!! (Flying to Detroit tomorrow for fall break)

  94. Dom Lamberty

    my favorite seger song. only heard it once in concert.

  95. Harold Mackie

    Live Bullett

  96. Robert Pinnock

    I did this. She was a stewardess from South West airlines - '79 in Fraser Valley
