Am          Em                 F                 C
    In the desert, where the cities are made of gold,
           G             Am            F            C
there's a girl playing hopscotch with pink ribbon pigtails.
Am           Em                      F            C
     And her mom calls out from an apartment balcony,
            G         Am                  F                C
"Come on, baby! your bath is ready! it's almost time for sleep!"

Am         C                  E           E7
    And i wonder, who's the father...
Am          C                     E       E7
     and i wonder what they call her

Am             Em                       F            C
     does her mother smoke or does she jog every morning?
           G              Am                  F                   C
does she drink when she thinks about me, or doesn't she need to drink?
Am               Em             F           C
       does she have a man who works a 9 to 5
             G                 Am                     F            C
does he come home to kiss our young sierra, tuck her in and say goodnight?

Am           C              E          E7
     and an extra kiss for mama...
Am                C                    E            E7
     i want that kiss, that kid, that apartment

     F               C
i'm ready to settle down now
    Am              G
so get that man out of my bed
   F                Am
i want my daughter back now
           C              /B                     E                  F           F7
i want to kiss her, tuck her in, and say, "goodnight, my baby girl"

Am        Em        F        C
   sierra    sierra   sierra   sierra

      G        Am
i'll never know who you are
    F                  C
and i don't deserve to

Am        Em        F        C
   sierra    sierra   sierra   sierra

my little girl
     Am               F               C
we would have been so...oh, nevermind

         F                Am
but i'm ready to settle down now
           C                  E                    E7
yeah i'm ready to leave that wrecking ball behind
F                  Am
I could be your carpenter,
     C                E              E7                   F      F7
and you could be my twinkling north star o'er the desert sky.
