There Is No Arizona lyrics

He promised her a new and better life, out in Arizona
Underneath the blue never ending sky
Swore that he was gonna get things in order, he'd send for her
When he left her behind, it never crossed her mind

There is no Arizona, no Painted Desert, no Sedona
If there was a Grand Canyon
She could fill it up with the lies he's told her
But they don't exist, those dreams he sold her
She'll wake up and find there is no Arizona

She got a postcard with no return address, postmarked tombstone
It said, "I don't know where I'm goin' next but when I do, I'll let you know"
May, June, July, she wonders why
She's still waiting, she'll keep waiting 'cause

There is no Arizona, no Painted Desert, no Sedona
If there was a Grand Canyon
She could fill it up with the lies he's told her
But they don't exist, those dreams he sold her
She'll wake up and find there is no Arizona

Each day the sun sets into the west
Her heart sinks lower in her chest
And friends keep asking when she's going
Finally she tells them don't you know

There is no Arizona, no Painted Desert, no Sedona
If there was a Grand Canyon
She could fill it up with the lies he's told her
But they don't exist, those dreams he sold her
She'll wake up and find there is no Arizona

He promised her a new and better life, out in Arizona
