A [Verse]
A Arizona Desert,

three in the afternoon
A No place for me to be,

twenty-eighth day of June
A I see lizards crawling,

some things that are not there
A Sun is shining so dang hot. Lord,

I can't breathe this air
D I'm on my way from L.A.,

and back to Tennessee
A I'm stranded in the desert,

feels like the devil's got me
F Em Convertible is slowing down,
F Em
looks like a Cadillac
F Em A redhead is driving,
a blonde is sleeping in the back
A A blonde's sleeping in the back
A She throws me the keys,

I put my guitar in the trunk
A Would you like to drive?

She said, "I'm about half drunk"
A She handed me a can of beer,

so cold it hurt my hand
A Oasis in the desert, Lord,

I've found the promised land
[Chorus] D So I struck out down

the highway with

my big foot on the gas
A My prayers have

all been answered,

now my bad luck's in the past
F Em Looking at that redhead,
I can see
she ain't no slouch
F Em And that blonde in the backseat,
come on now

and shut my mouth
A Come on now and shut my mouth [Verse]
A Right down this hot rock silence,

after a while
A That's when I first noticed

that redhead's wicked smile
A Why don't you pull off the road, son?

We'll find us a shade
A Maybe when that scorching sun goes down,

better time can be made
[Chorus] D Well that's how I spend the

afternoon, 28th day of June
A You can bet that's not one

I'll be forgetting soon
F Em By the time the sun went down, me and
F Em
the redhead wrote a book
F Em When I looked around, Lord,
the blonde was waking up
A Hey, the blonde was waking up [Outro]
A (Arizona desert,

three in the afternoon)

oh my God
A (Arizona desert,

three in the afternoon)
A (Arizona desert,

three in the afternoon)
A (Arizona desert,

three in the afternoon)
