Lyrics

Gila Bend
(Van Buren)

Walked out in the desert
By an old highway
The sun beat down upon me
Just another lonesome day

Left a bar in Tucson
Or was it Santa Fe?
Headed for the sunset
A place they call L.A.

Life has got more lonely
Than this bitter wind
If a rattlesnake should bite me
Lord, I would poison him

Ever since she left me
It's never been the same
Like the sand that's blowin'
It's just a losin' game

I pretend I'm happy
As I roam from town to town
Tryin' to taste the honey
But there just ain't none around

Life has got more lonely
Than this bitter wind
If a rattlesnake should bite me
Lord, I would poison him

If a rattlesnake should bite me
Lord, I would poison him
