1.
I filled up outside of Flagstaff, waved good bye to old Winslow
  Hit my stride ahead of Holbrook, million miles more to go
  I can hear that boy complaining, "Tell me, what did I do wrong?"
  I can hear his mama answer, "Better off now that she's gone"
 
chorus I'm the flicker of the white line in the corner of your eye
  I'm a coyote from Kayenta, laughing loudly in your mind
  I'm a hawk up on a thermal, crisp against the clear blue sky
  I'm a Sandstorm From Sedona, and I'm gonna blow on by
 
2.
Left that inbred town behind me, never stopped to say "good bye"
  Pawned my ring when I reached Prescott, need the money down the line
  There's a cowboy up in Gallup, God that man looks good in jeans
  Think I'll make it there by dinner, see if he remembers me
 
chorus
 
coda
I'm an April desert morning, I'm the flowers fresh with dew
  I'm a Sandstorm From Sedona, and I just blew by you
  Yeah, I'm a Sandstorm From Sedona, and I just blew by you
   
  Optional words:
1.
(lines 1-2 same)
  I can hear that girl complaining, "Tell me, what did I do wrong?"
  I can hear her mama answer, "Better off now that he's gone"
   
2.
(lines 1-2 same)
  There's a cowgirl up in Gallup, God that girl looks good in jeans
  Think I'll make it there by dinner, see if she remembers me
 

"I was driving home from Phoenix one April and started playing with alliteration of the town names on the signs. I included what I saw while I was driving. A Denver-area musician inspired the line: 'that man looks good in jeans'.

"People asked me if I was from Sedona. I wasn't born in Colorado. I came here when I was a child (see Coming to Colorado) and consider myself a Coloradan. I also like the play of my name with Sandstorm. That explains Colorado Sandstorm Music."
