Johnny Cash – Lost On The Desert lyrics
A burning hot sun a crying for water black wings circle the sky
Stumbling and falling somebody's calling you're lost on the desert to die
I had to give up and they took me to jail but I hid all the money I got
Way out on the desert where no one could get it and I left a mark at the spot
Then I got away and I ran for the desert the devil had taken control
I needed water but he said I'd make it near the money is a big waterhole
A burning hot sun
Just up ahead is where I left my mark or it may be to the left or the right
I've been running all day and they'll catch up tomorrow I've got to find it tonight
Then up jumped the devil and ran away laughing he drank all the waterholes dry
He moved my mark until I'm running in circles and lost on the desert to die
A burning hot sun
(Lost on the desert to die) lost on the desert to die (lost on the desert to die)
