Oh my, my, my

In a dusty caravan was a girl of a golden tan
And she asked me if I was headed to the east
I politely stepped aside and said I did not need a ride
That I'd rather take my chances with the heat

Well, when she turned and walked away, I saw my big mistake
There were jewels on her body oh so rare
Had it been another day I just might have rode away
With that woman riding off to God knows where

So the years they came and went and found me living in a tent
Far above a little marble stream
And it may have been the light that shone out through the night
That attracted the hand scratching on my screen

When I cautiously looked out through the night there was no doubt
That the owner of that hand was that girl
So I bid her do come in and I'll open up a tin
If you'll tell me 'bout your trip around the world

Well, she said, "If you think back to the first time that we passed
I'm sure you'll picture me in all my jewels
And it was shortly after then that I ran into another man
And I asked him the same question that I asked you

But now he, he didn't refuse and he took off of both of his shoes
And climbed aboard my east-bound caravan
Then in the twinkling of the night he had knocked me off the side
And left me there for dead upon the sand

And I thought that I was done lying naked in the sun
When much to my surprise, who should pass
But this old friend of yours he said he knew you from the wars
And I told him that I thought you'd headed west

Well, he said he should have known 'cause you like to be alone
And that's the time I knew you were my one
So I asked him for a ride just to get here by your side
And stay here above this stream out of the sun"

Well, we sat quite for a while and I began to smile
And I said, "Well it's strange but I don't care"
And some nights when I'm at rest I wonder if I'd said, "Yes"
If she would've come to me from God knows where

Or would I have been the one to leave her lying in the sun
And then ended up with only precious stones
Or would the woman in my arms be giving me her charms
If the answer that I gave her wasn't "No"
