The western male dreams of returning to his eastern love so they can ride into the desert in the moonlight.Cover may include photo of Delyle Alda against art background.

Far across the desert many, many miles away
‘Mid the rolling sand dunes where the yucca palm trees sway
There lives a maiden grand in that far distant land
That’s where I long to be both night and day
I want to

CHORUS:
Be in desert land
Back in desert land
That’s where my tho’ts go astraying now
That’s where my sweetheart is praying now,
How her heart will yearn,
Until I return
O’er the sand
To my dear Rose
Of desert land.
Where she waits for me to claim her hand
In the splendor of some starry June night,
‘mid the balmy oriental moonlight
We will ride away in desert land.

Where the desert trail is winding thru the burning sand
Soon I’ll be a roaming, in a dusty caravan
The Pyramids seem to call so I must go that’s all
Back where she wait alone in desert land.
I want to
