Dizzy

Album: Hunkpapa (1989)
Charted: 85
  • Along the Palo Duro canyon
    Red River shows so many eyes.
    One eye squnting shading from the sun, shoot me.

    Black as oil, his hair shone
    Lily white his skin glistened
    Restless as the reed between his lips blew.

    It's just that mean old Texas sun
    It makes me dizzy, dizzy, dizzy in my head

    What day is this? I quietly asked the sky.
    What time is it? he asked me sitting up.

    Love that villain on the run
    He's got me spinning 'round and falling on my head.

    What are you running from? I asked the white boy.
    From the guys who chased me there; Come run.
    I need your dark skin to sit beside me in my car.
    Light up my cigar, I'll light you.

    It's just that mean old Texas sun
    It makes me dizzy, dizzy, dizzy in my head
    Love that villain on the run
    He's got me spinning 'round and falling on my head.
    And dizzy, dizzy, dizzy,
    In my head.

    He said, You're only indian in Oklahoma.
    You could be melting in America.
    White on red, melt with my skin.
    These two hearts will beat along the walls of our hotel.
    I need your dark skin to sit beside me in my car.
    Light up my cigar, I'll light you.

    It's just that mean old Texas sun
    It makes me dizzy, dizzy, dizzy in my head

    The last I saw of Oklahoma
    A gas station fading in the dusk.
    Goodbye to my father, I thought, I'm carrying the light.
    The light of my comanche
    Make sure the dog remembers me
    I dream the sand beneath your feet
    I hold the light

    It's just that mean old Texas sun
    It makes me dizzy, dizzy, dizzy in my head
    Love that villain on the run
    He's got me spinning 'round and falling on my head.
    And dizzy, dizzy, dizzy, dizzy, dizzy, dizzy, dizzy,
    In my head. Writer/s: KRISTIN HERSH
