Well I've listened to the words you lovers speak
The sounds of the lover's song
And I've dreamed all the dreams
That the wayward girl dreams
In a thousand places gone

Dallas was my late night out
Radcliffe's saved to roust me out
And Houston lay like
Cleveland with the color removed

All I ever wanted
Was to wander and be wooed
Like a woman of the Phoenix
Welcomed Waterloo

I've seen the sun blaze
The breast of the countryside
I've seen her huddled in a winter freeze
And I've run 'cross paths of a thousand lives
Among the cactus and the white birch trees

Avloc ran a waterfront bar
Vito he was the king of thieves
And Michael was a rock 'n roll
Hood from the Odessa plains

All of them were my kind
Wild and damn near free
But a woman of the Phoenix
Is the medicine they need
