lyrics

Denver smells like a campfire again,
the rain days, it's been awhile.
Downtown the buildings they echo the wind,
and the Front Range it goes on for miles.

The kids in Wash Park play in the streets,
the cats creeping down into gutters.
The homeless look into the windows for free,
and the drunk men just laugh at each other.

Barely now seen, the cross on the mountain,
the smoke thickly billowing north.
Cheesman Park trees and depressed empty fountains,
and the dive bars are staying the course.

Over at Hick's house the lights on all night,
in the park men sleep on cement.
Across town in Globeville the hipster kids fight,
over whether a hat was well-meant.

Top of Republic, the city still dwarfed,
by the great American west.
Out to the mines where lives ended short,
and the desperate were put to the test.

Some men came for the promise of gold,
that went out as quick as a flame.
But whether they traveled by wagon or car,
they all lust for the Queen of the Plains.
The Queen of the Plains...
