Elton John - "From Denver To L.A." lyrics

Written by Francis Lai and Hal Sharper
Released as a US single in 1970
Issued on "The Games" soundtrack


If I say goodbye it'll grieve you
Denver means the whole world to you
Girl it breaks me up just to leave you
But I got things that I gotta do

Got to take my guitar
With one break I'm a star
Girl I'll love you forever more
But today I've got to make my way
From Denver to L.A.


Girl I know that you'll make me stay
But today I've got to make my way
From Denver to L.A.


There's a whole new life to be led there
That's the place that I gotta be
Guys are making mountains of bread there
Reckon it could happen to me


Lots of guys make the grade
Just one break and I may
And I'll bring it on home
