Answer me
Why won't you answer me?
I can't recall the day that I last heard from you
Well you don't get a town like this for nothing
So here's what you've got to do
You work your way to the top of the world
Then you break your life in two

Well what's the use in complaining
When you've got what you don't need
Anyone would think you were hard done to
What do you want me to believe

What the hell is happening
I can't think of everything
I don't know what day it is
Or who I'm talking to

But I know that I'm ok
'Cause you're here with me today
I haven't got a single problem
Now that I'm with you

So what's the use in complaining
When you've got everything you need
Anyone would think you were hard done to
What do you want me to believe

    General CommentIn fact, Denver must have won that lawsuit. I just got the Singles greatest hits disc, and he's credited as one of the writers.

    Supposedly it's just the guitar melody in the break that is similar to Leaving on a Jet Plane. So for subsequent releases, they don't include it.
