gone like the wind

                                              © words and music :   garnett betts

you’d catch that sound

in the moonlight, in the desert

it would come and go through the hills

and we’d wait quiet

on a tall desert night

to prove we all heard it still

     chorus:

       blowin’ through joshua tree

        off  the clouds, you and me

          they played live in the desert

            but they were gone like the wind

some said it was a station

from a trailer in the night

or a ghost band on a moonlight bill

we’d drive out to find

that sound out of sight

found the music

but the band we never will

    chorus:

       blowin’ through joshua tree

        off the clouds, you and me

          they played live in the desert

            but they were gone like the wind

                                              gone like the wind

bridge:

should have been so easy to find

they played clear as the night sky

the coyote cry!

but one more climb

and you’d pass them by

the hills held their secret song

and secrets never die

they just live on and on

    chorus:

  blowin’ through joshua tree

        off the clouds, you and me

          they played live in the desert

            but they were gone like the wind

                                            gone like the wind

legend goes

there’s a moonlight door in the desert

they’d disappear when you got near

tire tracks, a cold fire, and a morning chill

but I hear them so loud

playing down the years

    chorus:

       blowin’ through joshua tree

        off the clouds, you and me

          they played live in the desert

             they played all night in the desert

                 but they were gone like the wind

                                                gone like the wind
