"Benson Arizona" - theme from Dark Star
Music by John Carpenter
Lyrics by Bill Taylor
Vocals by John Yager

F
A million suns shine down
               C 
But I see only one

When I think I'm over you
                   F
I find I've just begun
                      A#
The years move faster than the days

There's no warmth in the light
C
How I miss those desert skies
     A#                F
Your cool touch in the night

CHORUS:
A#                    F                      Dm
Benson, Arizona, blew warm wind through your hair
   G                         C
My body flies the galaxy, my heart longs to be there
A#                   F                 Dm
Benson, Arizona, the same stars in the sky
    G                                  C                     F
But they seemed so much kinder when we watched them, you and I

        F
Now the years pull us apart
                         C
I'm young and now you're old

But you're still in my heart
                          F
And the memory won't grow cold
                     A#
I dream of times and spaces

I left far behind
C
Where we spent our last few days
A#             F
Benson's on my mind

Finally Somebody posts this stuff! Thank-You Soooo Much! I love Dark Star and thought this would be a great song to play around a campfire when everyone is feeling groovy, lol.

I've just watched Dark Star for the first time and love everything about it, including this heart-achingly beautiful song. Thank you so much for posting this- when I set about looking for chords I really didn't expect to find anything.
