​Looking For Water (In Joshua Tree)

This song is by Steve Tannen and appears on the album Big Señorita (2000).

I drove out interstate 10 rolling east
Past a thousand windmills I may as well be a priest
'Cause I ain't been with a woman in such a long time
The sun came up on the desert town
In some easy desert heat I'm out and walking around
And it's been feeling like a desert inside of me
I come looking for water in Joshua Tree

Across the yards the wind blows hard, my skin is so pale
There's a sign on one front lot that says "New Age Books for Sale"
A woman comes to the screen door and bends down
One heel lifts off the floor she doesn't make a sound

And the black hair falls across her face
As she fools with a stocking or a hose or a lace
I would play her amazing grace if I'd only brought my harp
And there's a small motel with a vacancy
I come looking for water in Joshua Tree
I come looking for water in Joshua Tree
I come looking for water in Joshua Tree
