  • 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
