It was just too heeby-jeeby filled for the general public. I did keep a copy of it, though, so I can look at it and go to my happy place whenever I want to.

Actually, the signature line should be, "I've been through the desert on a horse with two legs..."

Just sayin' ...


A Horse With No Name
Written by Dewey Bunnell, 1971


On the first part of the journey
I was looking at all the life
There were plants and birds and rocks and things
There was sand and hills and rings
The first thing I met was a fly with a buzz
And the sky with no clouds
The heat was hot and the ground was dry
But the air was full of sound

I've been through the desert on a horse with no name
It felt good to be out of the rain
In the desert you can remember your name
'Cause there ain't no one for to give you no pain
La, la ...

Dang. Too long to use as a sig. But that made me laugh out loud and scare the puppy, Terrierman.
