Went to the desert
On a mission
To have a vision
Or write a song
I left real early
I left my cell phone
I took the Prius
It gets good mileage
Something’s gonna happen
To change my world

I’m on the highway
I pass the windmills
I pass the outlet stores
Soon I’ll find the sacred places
I’ve been searching for

Wild horses
Hawks circling
Gram Parsons, inspiration
Big cactus
Coyotes
Something’s gonna happen
To change my world

When I got there
To the motel
It was different
Than on the website
It was crowded
Mostly seniors
There was a bar band playing “Bad, Bad Leroy Brown”
So I went hiking
It was so barren
And it got too hot, so I turned around 

Went to the main drag
I saw the statue
Of Sonny Bono
And he was smiling

Something’s gonna happen
To change my world
