Desert Rain

Starlight Road

Desert Rain, fall on me
From the sky flow to the sea
Stranger times have yet to be
Desert Rain, fall on me

Heaven sends the cool, fresh waters
Thunder roars across the sky
Music plays for dimes and quarters
Another storm goes passing by

I used to play guitar in a late night bar in Reno
Where the nighthawks and the lonely people go
Where the women that you meet are mostly ladies of the street
Looking for a one-night Romeo

Heaven sends the cool, fresh waters
Thunder roars across the sky
Music plays for dimes and quarters
Another storm goes passing by

Heaven sends the cool, fresh waters
Thunder roars across the sky
Music plays for dimes and quarters
Another storm goes passing by

Do you remember the words you said when I was leaving
That my love for you had always been pretend
I will send my guardian angel to watch over you tonight
That’s all I have to give you that heaven sends

Desert Rain,Desert Rain
Thunder roars across the sky
Music plays for dimes and quarters
Another storm goes passing by

Desert Rain, fall on me
From the sky flow to the sea
Stranger times have yet to be
Desert Rain, fall on me
