D.B. Cooper by Todd Snider F G F F D.B. Cooper was 43 when we first heard his name. F G F G 47 miles away from where he fell down to his fame. F G F F But he told me that the hardest part wasn't really jumping out of the plane. F F G F It was spending the night, watching them lights shine through the pouring rain. F G F F ss They had a manhunt that next morning like nothing I had ever seen.|| F G F G I was only 8 years old at the time, watching on the tv screen. F G F F They were saying he was never gonna make it now, now that daylight had set in. F F G F But later that night they were shining a light down on the mountain again. (chorus) F F F F F Dmin G Not far away, from the city of roses, they all watched those lights up through the rain. F F F F F For G.E. Cooper. F G F F Well, the cops blocked off all the exit roads and turned out all of the hounds. F G F G They even dragged the river up a couple of times to see if he hit ground. F G F F With all of those men working overtime well they swore they would bring him down. F F G F But a parachute and a few hundred dollars is all that they've ever found. (chorus) F F F F F Dmin G G Not far away, from the city of roses, they all watched those lights up through the rain. F G F F Now some people say that he died up there, somewhere in the rain and the wind. F G F G Other people say that he got away, but then his girlfriend did him in. F G F F The lawmen say if he is out there, someday they're gonna drag him in. F F G F As for me, I hope they never see, D.B. Cooper again. (chorus) F F F F F Dmin G Not far away, from the city of roses, a light shines from a house out in the rain. F F F F F It was D.B. Cooper, drinking champagne. Drinking Champagne.
