"Things To Do In Denver When You're Dead" as written by Warren Zevon, Leroy P. Marinell and Robert T. Wachtel....
I called up my friend LeRoy on the phone
I said, Buddy, I'm afraid to be alone
I got some weird ideas in my head
About things to do in Denver when you're dead

I was working on a steak the other day
I saw Waddy in the Rattlesnake Cafe
Dressed in black, tossing back a shot of rye
Finding things to do in Denver when you die

You won't need a cab to find a priest
Maybe you should find a place to stay
Some place where they never change the sheets
And you just roll around Denver all day

LeRoy says there's something you should know
Not everybody has a place to go
And home is just a place to hang your head
And dream up things to do in Denver when you're dead

You won't need a cap to find a priest
Maybe you should find a place to stay
Some place where they never change the sheets
And you jut roll around Denver all day

You just roll around Denver all day

    General CommentLove this song and enjoy the line "I was working on a steak the other day".


    Warren was a creature of habit and his choice of meals was usually steak.

    MemoryIt's been just over twelve years since his death and his music stays strong. "You just roll around Denver all day" is a great line to end a song.
