  • Song of the Desert

    The sun shines bright on my Arizona home
    The soft breezes whisper round my door
    The deer run free, the lions & javalina roam
    The cares of the fast life are no more

    Coyotes howl as the sun dips in the west
    The hills and the canyons are aflame
    I lay my body down for a quiet peaceful rest
    In my house at the end of the lane

    As night time falls on my Arizona home
    The sky twinkles with a million lights
    In the shadow of the hills descends a quiet calm
    We love starry Arizona Nights

    As dawn creeps forth the canyons fill with haze
    The purple mountains shimmer in the sun
    in this land of solitude and endless summer days
    Our day among the cowboys has begun
