He promised her a new and better life
Out in Arizona
Underneath the blue never-ending sky
Swore that he was gonna
get things in order
He'd send for her
When he left her behind, it never crossed her mind

There is no Arizona
No painted desert
No Sedona
If there was
A grand canyon
She could fill it up with the lies he's told her
But they don't exist
Those dreams he sold her
She'll wake up and find
There is no Arizona

She got a postcard with no return address
Post marked Tombstone
It said I dont know where I'm goin next
But when I do I'll let ya know
May, June, July
She wonders why she's still waitin
She'll keep waiting cause

There is no Arizona
No painted desert
No Sedona
If there was
A grand canyon
She could fill it up with the lies he's told her
But they don't exist
Those dreams he sold her
She'll wake up and find
There is no Arizona

Each day the sun sets into the west
Her heart sinks lower in her chest
And friends keep askin when she's goin
Finally she tells them, don't you know

There is no Arizona
No painted desert
No Sedona
If there was
A grand canyon
She could fill it up with the lies he's told her
But they don't exist
Those dreams he sold her
She'll wake up and find
There is no Arizona

He promised her a new and better life
Out in Arizona
