Paragraph Lyric
D.B. Cooper was 43 when we first heard his name
47 miles away from where he fell down to his fame
He told me that the hardest part
Wasn't really jumping out of that plane
It was spending the night
Watching those lights
Shine through the pouring rain

They had a manhunt that next morning
Like nothing I had ever seen
I was only eight years old at the time
Watching on the TV screen
They were saying he was never going to make it now
Now the daylight had set in
But later that night
They were shining lights
Down on the mountain again

Not far away from the City of Roses
They all watched those lights up through the rain
For D.B. Cooper

Well, the cops blocked off all the exit roads
And they turned out all of the hounds
They even dragged the river up a couple of times
To see if he had drowned
With all those men working overtime
They swore they would bring him down
But a parachute and a few hundred dollars
Was all that they ever found

Not far away from the City of Roses
They all watched those lights up through the rain

Now, some people say that he died up there
Somewhere in the rain in the wind
Other people say that he got away
But then his girlfriend did him in
The law men say if he is out there
Some day they're going to drag him in
But as for me, I hope they never see
D.B. Cooper again

Not far away from the City of Roses
Lights shine from a house out in the rain
It was D.B. Cooper
Drinking champagne
