Return to Lyrics list

Living on the borderline
You get a sense of danger
You see it in their eyes
The way they come and go
They say that talk is cheap
And I don't have an answer
But I think you ought to know
Once I loved a dancer
Loretta of the rivers

When mission bells are still
And dusk settles like wildfire
She comes in dreams that will
Linger 'til the dawn
When I'm talkin' in my sleep
I need someone to hear me
Someone to turn me on
Someone to be near me

Loretta of the rivers
Arizona wind
Blows across the mesa
Don't let the sand get in your eyes
It never stops you know
It creeps beneath the kitchen door
Collects in corners in the cellar

Like a fortune teller
You will learn to read the future
In a woman's eyes
The way she lets the screen door slam
You'll fall in love so deep
You'll have to dig a hole to
But you won't give a damn
Once you give your soul to

Loretta of the rivers
Arizona wind
Blows across the mesa
Don't let the sand get in your eyes
Te quiero mi amor
Te quiero con el fuego
De mi alma y corazon
