Desdemona Lyrics - The Allman Brothers Band

Review The Song (1)


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

One of their best "Jam" tunes | Reviewer: Mike Boutwell | 1/7/10

I'm lucky enough to know a few of the Brothers personally as friends and have for the last 25 years (I'm also a musician)and I'd dare say that Desdemona holds it's own with their standards like Whipping Post, Elizibeth Reed, etc. as far as an "all instruments played" tune. As always, the Brothers put the spin that only they can do on a song. Derrick, Warren, Otel, Gregg, Jaimo and Butch boil this Desdemona "soup" to just the perfect tempo. Oh yeah, what about "Rockin' Horse" with Haynes and Trucks tearing it up?
