Arizona Morning

Arizona Morning

Music by Peter Link
Lyrics by Larry Rosler

Oh the desert sun is shining
On an Arizona morning
Setting all the world on fire
Turning canyons into gold
And I’ve never seen it bigger
And I’ve never seen it brighter
And it’s never been so clear to me
My luck is turning cold

I can see my life before me
On the Arizona morning
And there’s suddenly a future
Where the darkness used to be
Time to leave this world of wonder
To the coyotes and the badgers
Gonna leave before the undertaker
Gets his hands on me

Goodbye, Arizona morning
I have seen the light and seen it clean and clear
Goodbye, Arizona morning
I better figure where I’m gonna go from here
Here in the bright white morning

I could head down to Pueblo
But I’d drink too much tequila
I could head up to Nebraska
But I’d bust a gut on corn
And I’ve got a sudden craving
For Atlantic crab and oysters
So I’m packing up and heading east this Arizona morn

Goodbye, Arizona morning
I am heading home across the countryside
Goodbye, Arizona morning
I got a feeling that it’s time for me to ride
Into the bright, white morning

Going where the cool wind blows
Shake the desert from my clothes
Only Sagittarius knows
What lies ahead
For me

Adios and let’s get goin’
On an Arizona morning
Fare-thee-well, my friends and neighbors
May you keep your powder dry
Pretty soon I will be strollin’
On the beaches by the ocean
And I’ll think of all you sinners ‘neath the Arizona sky

Goodbye, Arizona morning
I am heading home across the countryside
Goodbye, Arizona morning
I got a feeling that it’s time for me to ride
So it’s goodbye Arizona morning
Goodbye Arizona sky!
