Everettsville: Music

"Arizona Lullaby" acoustic demo (2008)

(Don Everett Pearce)
July 9, 2008
Off that long desert road
Under blackening skies and thunderbolts
A little town, a cheap motel
We left behind the things we couldn't sell
It's like yesterday this girl became my bride
She's got a little something growing inside
And the desert road goes on and on
We're looking for a place where we belong

Drizzling rain, drifting clouds
A three-quarter moon ducks in and out
The tatooed girl has crashed her bike
On slippery paving stones with no streetlights
"No, that's okay" she says "I'm alright"
Picks up her things and pedals out of sight
Now we've got to be that strong
We're looking for a place where we belong

A frieght train blows a joyful moan
That's a sound I know from way back home
There's a great big world waiting outside
And we're only here for this one night
I watch my honey lying fast asleep
Where no frieght train can interrupt her dreams
Of a desert road and a little town
She's looking for a place where she belongs
And the desert road goes on so long
She's looking for a place where she belongs
And the desert road goes on and on
She's looking for a place where she will belong
