​Surprise, Az

This song is by Richard Buckner and appears on the album Bloomed (1994).

Mother, do you see?
What's about to happen?
I'm gonna turn us around and we'll be gone.

Put your arms up, dear ...
And they'll keep the casket open ...
And they'll take us back to Oklahoma,
Where we belong.

Surprise, Arizona ...
Put us out of our sweet misery.

I'm 34,
You were 21,
You told me once that he knew when he first saw you.
But were you happy then?
I'd like to know?
I think about him still when I see you alone.

Surprise, Arizona ...
Put us out of our sweet misery.

And you know about me,
At only 23,
You saw her come and go as I went through everything I had.
But mother, did you see?
What was gonna happen?
She let me down so far, I never quite made it back ...

Surprise, Arizona ...
Put us out of our sweet misery.
