Valerie Lyrics

by Emmylou Harris

To the east the factories stand like fire-breathing dragons against the sky
And from their throats a scarlet river burns itself into smoky lullabies
Over neon and fluorescent skie
Valerie can you hear those engines drone
I wanted to go to Mexico but I'm stranded here alone
And once I knew a true love it's been three years since he's gone
And if I could get that feeling back I'd give up everything I own
[ Lyrics from: ]
Sixteen days since I left Corona and I traveled to this carnival town near Alberndee
And I rode the coaster there on the fairground
Twisted backbone of a beast that never heals
And I left some skin on fortune's wheel
Valerie can you hear those engines drone...

Everything's in slow motion now in this little border town
I've come so close from so far
Just to hide behind these windows here from the world outside
I watch those cars and trucks raise trails of dust down the road as they pass by
Valerie can you hear those engines drone..
Everything I own everything I own
