Hometown Tunes: Tucson In Song (Part 4)

tucsonaz

My adopted home, Tucson, Arizona, has a rich history of lyrical name checking in popular music. Here’s the part four of a continuing saga of songs that reference “The Old Pueblo”.

Ronnie Dunn – How Far To Waco (2011)

“Stopped at a Tuscon truck stop, Coke and a candy bar
Paid for the gas with the last of my cash, got back in the car
I can’t wait to hold you, my darlin’, in my arms
Goin’ back to the love of that pretty girl that owns my heart”

3 Of Hearts – Arizona Rain (2001)

“I’m burning like the Tucson sand
Broken as the partched, dry ground
I need to feel you
Raining down”

Insane Clown Posse – Toxic Love (2002)

“I said I got this dick sup on lickin’ it
She said I’m down for the tactics
Then my dick stood up like a Tucson cactus
I threw her in the back of my jaloppe
She was wet and sloppy”

Marty Robbins – Ava Maria Morales (1976)

“True love would never let Ava Maria believe it
And there in her window each evening she’d light a candle and hope he would see it
The years turned her dark hair to silver but love still lived on
She prayed every night for the cowboy that worked on the ranch just outside of Tucson”
