There Is No Arizona
by Jamie O'Neal



He promised her a new and better life out in Arizona
Underneath the blue neverending 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 wak 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 get there and find
There is no Arizona

Each day the sun sets into the west
Her heart sinks lower in her chest
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 get there and find
There is no Arizona
