lyrics

D.B. Cooper, ace parachuter
Man most wanted by the FBI
D.B. Cooper, ace parachuter
Dropped like an angel from the sky
When he leapt out of that plane
And dove into the clouds
Did he find himself in heaven
Or just in the trees?
We'll never know

D.B. Cooper, ace parachuter
Not one fed could ever find him
D.B. Cooper, was one slick dude!
Set his ransom on the high wing
Of a 727
But not one cent was spent
Not one dollar gone
The ransom never touched
Where did he go?

People said they'd seen him
D.B. the star!
Many claimed to be him
In their heads no doubt they are

"D.B. Cooper, ace parachuter"
Man most wanted by the FBI
"D.B. Cooper, ace parachuter"
Dropped like an angel from the sky
When he leapt out of that plane
And dove into the clouds
Did he find himself in heaven
Or just in the trees?
Or just in the trees?
Or just in the trees?
We'll never know...
