1. Running Dry

From the recording Running Dry


Running Dry

I’ve been through a hundred deserts
Burned the soles clean off my shoes
Dust in my eyes and rattlesnakes
I guess I’ve paid my dues

I’m running dry
No thoughts to occupy
I’m running dry
Not a cloud in the sky
I’m running dry

I thought I saw the Pacific blue
But it shown only in my dreams
Suddenly, I was awaken
By coyote’s howling scream


I look back now to save my life
By wishing you were here
But you’ve been gone for oh so long
I just dream your body near
