Denver Girls - Lyrics

She wore a silver talisman and always spoke in plains
Found me on the road half dead, looking for a change
She said Hey, broken hearted man quit standing in the door.
If it's not paradise now, tell me what you're waiting for
Don't you know?
There is no evermore
She told me of her new religion to the sound of passing trains
She tied me to that motel bed
Left me to call her name
And you know
I've never been the same
With those eyes like faded jewels
And that crooked country smile
That Denver girl, she drug me down a rough and ragged mile
And you know
It sure was worth the while
She said hey I love you now, but let's get one thing clear
Many roads will get you there but none will take you here
If you knew just where you are, she said, you wouldn't be so sad
The only thing you ever lose is what you thing you have
Don't you know?
It isn't good or bad
Then she sang along some ballad
Like Penny Tai or Curtis Jane
That Denver girl stole my heart with every song she sang
And you know
I've never been the same
Oh those eyes like faded jewels
And that crooked country smile
That Denver girl, she drug me down a rough and ragged mile
And you know
It sure was worth the while
