    Lyrics

    (Billy Kirsch / Steve Wariner)

    Daddy always said he'd come back when the first snow came
    Bringing treats like Santa Claus on Christmas day
    Momma always said son don't you get your hopes too high
    Daddy he's a dreamer reaching for the sky.
    Still I waited by the window at Christmas time
    And I sat on the front steps as Easter rolled by
    Then we moved to Arizona 'round the 4th of July
    But Daddy never came, I waited just the same.

    Chorus:
    And they say it never snows in Arizona
    But I never stopped believing that it would
    And before I'd go to sleep at night
    I'd look up at the desert sky
    Close my eyes the same ole prayer again
    I'd wake up and see the snowfall on the sand.

    Part of growing up for me was learning way too soon
    The difference between fantasy and cold hard truth
    Momma liked to say accept those things you cannot change
    She was scared I 'd be like Dad and dream my life away.
    But in a corner of my mind I kept a place for him
    'Cause a promise lasts forever when you're just a kid
    Yea, he told me in a season he'd be back again
    But Daddy never came, I waited just the same.

    Chorus:
    And they say it never snows in Arizona
    But I never stopped believing that it would
    And before I'd go to sleep at night
    I'd look up at the desert sky
    Close my eyes the same ole prayer again
    I'd wake up and see the snowfall on the sand.

    Last night my Father's sister called me on the phone
    Said today your father passed away
    I thought that you should know
    You were the one that he thought of
    As he left this world behind
    He said tell my boy I'm goning to find a way to
    Come and say goodbye.

    And they say it never snows in Arizona
    But I'm looking out my window and it is
    And I swear I can't believe my eyes
    To see the desert painted white
    For a moment we're together once again
    As I see the snowfall on the sand...
