lyrics

RED ROCKS ROCKS

I had a dream the other night that I was playing at Red Rocks.
And my guitar wasn't loud enough in the monitor.
Disconcerting--to say the least. It's the nature of the beast:
You want to rock peoples' socks off at Red Rocks.

Red Rocks, where the Beatles played.
Thank the CCC, the WPA:
they built that theater seating in the '30s.

An amphitheater stage on holy ground,
You can hear the acoustic sound
of a guitar strummed at the bottom
up at the top.

Red!
Rocks!
Red Rocks!
Red Rocks Rocks!
Red!
Rocks!
Red Rocks!
Red Rocks Rocks!

I saw The Clash and the Grateful Dead.
Music memories imprinted in my head
Beneath the star-filled skies
up at Red Rocks.

Never mind the Bollocks:
It's the Sex Pistols live at Red Rocks.
Johnny Rotten needed
oxygen.

Freezing in the pissing rain
Watching Bruce Springsteen.
He played longer than I felt like
staying.

Red-Headed Stranger,
Bob Dylan,
Puff the Magic Dragon,
Two Turntables and a Hatchet Lady
up at Red Rocks

Red!
Rocks!
Red Rocks!
Red Rocks Rocks!
Red!
Rocks!
Red Rocks!
Red Rocks Rocks!

I went to school in Jefferson County
My graduation ceremony:
Green and gold up at Red Rocks.

Sunrise Easter ceremonies.
Summertime pagan pageantry.
Under the Bloody-Red Red Rocks.

At millennium’s end it was proposed
lasers with corporate logos
shine onto the Creation.
That's sinking pretty low.
The crass want to take part in my show,
Live from Red Rocks!

Red!
Rocks!
Red Rocks!
Red Rocks Rocks!
Red!
Rocks!
Red Rocks!
Red Rocks Rocks!
