Wikipedia:
Arizona was recorded in 1969 by Mark Lindsay, a solo effort while still lead singer for Paul Revere and the Raiders. Lindsay was backed by LA session musicians from the Wrecking Crew.
The song’s title, Arizona, refers to the singer’s girlfriend, whom he considers innocent and naïve. In the end though, his love for Arizona and what she represents to him overcomes his cynicism, and the singer decides to follow her example, adopting her view of the world, instead of expecting her to accept his.
