lyrics

Born with a silver spoon
Through velvet curtains we stared at the moon
On silken carpets we travelled far
And I played the piano, and you played guitar

Little sister of mine tell me where will you go
I am going to the desert where the wildflowers grow
Little sister of mine tell me where will you be
I’m going to a place called Joshua Tree

I can’t follow in your footsteps, and I can't ease your fears
It ain’t on me to make you happy, in this world full of tears
No I don’t need a garden just gimme rocks and sand
Gonna drive out all the way to the end of the road
Make my home out on the land

Little sister of mine tell me where will you go
I am going to the desert where the wildflowers grow
Little sister of mine tell me where will you be
I’m going to a place called Joshua Tree

Joshua tree, Joshua tree,
I am going to a place called Joshua Tree

And now it’s time, away I fly,
Gonna get drunk on the stars and sky
And brother there’s no need to cry
To all of my lovers I say goodbye
We'll meet again in the by and by...
