The Desert Has A 1000 Eyes

Words and Music Phil Odgers


On the Ismailia desert road from Port Said to Cairo

It’s a three hour drive from the three green domes

As the sun beats down, we’re melting on the highroad

Sticking to our seats, boiling in our bones


Out in the sand what do I see?

A vision calling to me

And the desert has a thousand eyes on me


V2

Through fields of reeds, whiskey and guitaro

Art deco dreams down by the teeming shore

Where lady liberty brought her light so faro

From the great green sea to the golden door


Out in the sand what do I see?

A vision calling to me

And the desert has a thousand eyes on me


V3
On the Ismailia desert road heading down to Cairo

I saw you out among the dunes

But it was just a dream Ra brought on with the high notes

I was 5000 miles and 100 years from you
