My first recollection of knowin’ she was there
Was the sweet smell of perfume jasmine driftin’ through the air
Her smile in both my mirrors was a sign of times to come
A reflection of the future, a mirage in the sun
In all my wildest dreams she was always in my mind
She opened up my soul and kept my heart from goin’ blind

We came from Woodstock on a twelve string train
Crossed Sugar Mountain in the drivin’ pourin’ rain
Took old Route 66 saw a picture of the past yeah
The picture asked the question: Will the future last?
A vision of the future was all I left behind
She is so deep, oh God, she is so deep inside my mind

Those desert winds were blowin’ and my mind was makin’ time
My chrome wire wheels were rollin’ right down center line
With her smile in both my mirrors she was blowin’ my mind
On that warm desert highway, with those shining white eyes

She was lying close beside me on the Arizona sand
Her love was like a blanket, soft and warm in my hands
Every page in every book on all the ways to make love we tried
And counted stars until the desert sun lit up the morning sky
With the sweet smell of perfume jasmine driftin’ through my mind
I heard her whisper softly, "I feel so beautiful inside."

Those desert winds were blowin’ and my mind was makin’ time
My chrome wire wheels were rollin’ right down center line
With her smile in both my mirrors she was blowin’ my mind
On that warm desert highway, with those shining white eyes
Those desert winds were blowin’ and my mind was makin’ time
My chrome wire wheels were rollin’ right down center line
With her smile in both my mirrors she was blowin’ my mind
On that warm desert highway, with those shining white eyes
With her smile in both my mirrors she was blowin’ my mind
On that warm desert highway, with those shining white eyes
On that warm desert highway, with those shining white eyes
