Tucson Cactus Queen

album: Camel Rock (1995), track 10 of 13
author: Chuck Pyle
publisher: Bee 'n' Flower Music BMI

She's dancing in the sand out behind the car
Singing the words, playing air-guitar
Rocket Buster boots, a cactus corsage
The spitting image of my desert mirage

She wears a medicine bag of Painted Desert dirt
Sedona Ramona, now, she's a piece of work
She comes to the point but she's sweet in between
The desert rules but she's the Cactus Queen
   Here's a new song to Sedona Ramona
   Down in Tucson, southern Arizona
   She set me loose on account of her dreams
   I miss my Tucson Cactus Queen
That highway's shimmering like gasoline
I am on my way to my Cactus Queen
Silver moonlight earrings spark
Today was just tonight, waiting for the dark
     It's a hundred and ten in the center of the night
     And those stars that fall like rain
     We're making love with all of our might
     And this river of fire is roaring through our veins
