lyrics

I remember when I was 13 years old
My mother took my brother and me
All the way to sin city
Creeping 'round the bend through the desert dust bowls,
A sea of lights lit the sky like a Christmas tree

We were hanging around in the playground of the world
Inside a casino there was I keeping one eye on a topless girl
I knew there and then that it wouldn't take long
For my teenage desires to unfurl

But little did I know then
That the only place I’d wanna see again
Was five hours north in our rented car
A forgotten town called Tonopah

Tonopah, Tonopah
They can keep the money, I keep my heart in Tonopah

As I recall there was nothing at all you could say on a postcard. Just a coffee house and a spooky graveyard.
But now I'm looking for that solitary life
Underneath a silent starry sky
And I know that I won’t have to look too far
If I ever get back to Tonopah

Tonopah, Tonopah
They can keep the money, I keep my heart in Tonopah
