Allman Brothers Band – Desdemona Lyrics


Rain falls upon a sleepy southern town

The midnight moon burning brightly

Memories rush in like a river forlorn

As you lay sleeping without me #

Highway song keeps me rolling on

Still I long for you #


Desdemona, I will be your only one

Oh yeah

I make my living calling out my pain

Trying to make it through another day

Arms reach for me on the wind I can feel it

They’re a thousand miles away #

Yours eyes remind me of everything beautiful and blue

and I won’t feel myself till I’m with you #


BREAK (double time)

So hold a candle till the darkness fades

Nigh time sleeps but not for long

My heart is pounding like the ocean my soul’s empty as the sky

But I know someday I’ll be coming home #

Time goes by in the twinkling of an eye

Still I pine for you #


I just wanna be your only one

I just wanna be your only one

Your only one
