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