Hiding in the shadows. Blowing through the curtains of your room”/she’s a coyote, you can’t own her/beautiful Desdemona/ lovely Desdemona/she was working at a service station/out in Arizona under that HWY 10 sky/she was looking for a reason she had never seen an ocean/and I was just convenient/but hell I didn’t mind/traveling like Moses down the road/beautiful Desdemona/la la la la/ Lying Desdemona/like a snake in the stonework/issed me in the southern sun until she drew my blood/she said “Leave that longing with me, I will plant it by the roadside. Heaven help the man who sings just to be loved”/the holy hand of Jesus don’t get nothing done/Jesus, Desdemona, we had fun!/singing la la la la/ Theivin Desdemona/long hair flying out the window/leaving my last dollar on the running boards/and I’m still looking for her/dancing barefoot in the graveyard/she’s witchin in the moonlight/it’s that truck that I miss more/slick as a river stone/beautiful Desdemona/singing LA LA LA LA
