(words & music by byers)This proud wild land where the wind blows freeHas always been a part of meIt’s in my blood, I just can’t get it outFor a hundred miles a man can seeAnd be about as wild as he wants to beIf he feels like shouting all he’s gotta do is shoutWhere the purple mountains reach up highAnd look like they’re gonna touch the skyWhere the canyon walls have stood for a million yearsWhere the days are hot, the nights are coldThe desert sand looks just like goldThese trails were carved in sweat and blood and tearsWhere the painted desert as you pass byLooks like a rainbow in the skyThe cactus blooms in the early morning sunWhere the nightwings sing and eagles flyThe clouds paint pictures in the skyThe coyotes howl tells you when the day is doneI’m coming home, this time I’m gonna stayI’m coming home and I ain’t never goin’ awayMy feet are itching to get back homeI’ve had the desert fever since I’ve been goneI need some loving so bad that I can’t seeWhen a woman looks a man in the eyeYou know it takes a man to satisfyThinking about them girls is killing meI’m going home, going homeGoing home, I’m going homeGoing home, going homeGoing home
