The Colorado Legislature may not have known that "Rocky Mountain High" references drug use (ha!), but John Denver sure did. Because here are his lyrics for another song, "Poems, and Prayers, and Promises":
And I have to say it now It's been a good life all in all It's really fine To have a chance to hang around And lie there by the fire And watch the evening tire While all my friends and my old lady Sit and pass the pipe around.
Far out! -- Patricia Calhoun
