Crossing 66 03:48
Crossing 66 © 2004 Nancy K. Dillon 1) I crossed that road 1000 nights Asphalt river to the left and right The only part of it I owned Was 18 blocks from Elm to Stone 2) Stuck there in that dusty town I watched the wind whirl trash around No one heard the silent sound My suffocated screams unwound CHO: The Lord's house was behind me In front the donut shop We'd race to beat the traffic And never once be caught 3) They say the night has 1000 eyes And I could never help but see That 1 day I would take that road That snaked in back and front of me CHO: 16 years to get my wheels 7 more to get aligned The westward wind blew me free To leave the dust and chains behind 4) 66, you're on my mind 66, you're all I need 66, you're in my dreams Oh, let me fly with reckless speed Crossing, oh-oh, crossing Crossing, oh-oh, crossing My love song to a highway...

Just Let Me Dream © 2004 Nancy K. Dillon 1) Just let me dream Don't spoil this scene Come put your hand in mine and We will sleep on silver sand 2) Just let me dream Know what I mean? So lie here next to me And when the sun comes you will see CHORUS: I never want to live without you I don't want to have to make it on my own Never want to live without you So come on, baby, won't you please come home? 3) Just come with me Leave your blues be Let's walk through golden sun until We reach the aqua sea 4) Look through my eyes See the moon rise? You're a boy at the ocean I'm a tall grass girl in a big wide world and I... CHORUS For all of my dreaming sisters wherever they may be... From "Just Let Me Dream" CD © Nancy K. Dillon 2004

Almost To Idaho © 2004 Nancy K. Dillon 1) Almost to Idaho My love, I miss you so Two more days to Washington Then my travelin' will be done 2) I needed time and open space But now I need to see your face Through these hills, a ribbon road Leads me home through Idaho BRIDGE: Santa Fe was pretty And all the family's fine I wish that you were with me To hear these old wheels whine 3) Almost to Idaho Burning sun and clouds of snow When we meet, I'll hold you close And remember Idaho A postcard written in my head on the road... From "Just Let Me Dream" CD © Nancy K. Dillon 2004

Nothing In Texas © 2004 Nancy K. Dillon 1) Ain't nothin' in Texas to stop the wind It just keeps blowin', remembering, Cottonwoods snowing white clouds in my hair The smell of the yellow wheat hangs in the air 2) Ain't nothin' in my heart can stem the tide Love just keeps flowing so deep and so wide The sound of your voice in the dark summer night The warmth of your skin in the pale candlelight 3) Ain't nothin' can stop these songs that I play They just float up as the stars blaze away Melody plays by the light of the moon She laughs as she dances and sings her new tune From "Just Let Me Dream" CD © Nancy K. Dillon 2004

O Susanna 05:47
O Susanna © 2004 Nancy K. Dillon 1) O Susanna, night is comin' on Take your heart and keep it safe until the dawn There I go again: wantin' the best for you There you go again: sayin' that we're through 2) O Susanna, stars light one by one This old world keeps spinnin' 'round the setting sun There you go again: flyin' all apart There I go again: the horse before the cart BRIDGE: Your wings are singed and sunburnt While I sit like a stone My stillness makes you crazy You make me feel alone 3) O Susanna, don't you cry for me Tune up that old banjo and play a filigree Here we go again: dancin' on the flame Here we go again: the music's still the same BRIDGE 4) O Susanna, don't you cry for me Tune up that old banjo and play an elegy Here we go again: dancin' on the flame Here we go again: the music's still the same O Susanna From "Just Let Me Dream" CD © Nancy K. Dillon 2004

The Ballad of Mabel Dodge © 2004 Nancy K. Dillon & Michael R. Bristow 1) Mabel Dodge came to Santa Fe and then went North to Taos She met Antonio, an Indian man, and lost her heart to chaos And the rocks and hills, the cottonwoods and roses Pinion smoke lying low across the valley, lying low BRIDGE: She went to find the mountain In the waning days of winter She seemed to know just what to do Was like she'd always been there She lost herself and found every Mirage was a mirror She woke one day to find out That the desert air was clearer 2) Mabel Dodge saw between the lines She could hear the words unspoken Tony gave her the Medicine And promises unbroken And they built their house On a hill above the village Snow white clouds flying high above the valley, flying high! From "Just Let Me Dream" CD © Nancy K. Dillon 2004

Fire & Soul 03:55
Fire & Soul © 2004 Nancy K. Dillon 1) Yesterday I heard your voice Singing soft and low An old mountain song you loved so well Singing with fire and soul CHORUS: Fire and Soul, flames of gold Singing with fire and soul Your voice will never now grow old You sang with fire and soul 2) Far away was close enough How my tender heart yearned A little love can mean so much A whole lot of fire gets you burned CHORUS For Charles...so missed by so many. From "Just Let Me Dream" CD © Nancy K. Dillon 2004

Tired Heart 03:49
Tired Heart © 2004 Nancy K. Dillon 1) I made this bed This is where I sleep Sit 'n' watch the sun go down The silence sounds so deep 2) I made this bed In my innocence I'm staring at the blurring lines Of a book that makes no sense CHORUS: I never thought this room could be so lonely I never dreamed our laughter would depart I never felt my body seem so hollow So as the stars rise up I'll drain this cup And quietly tuck in this tired heart BRIDGE: So if I reach for you tonight Would you turn to me or just keep right on Livin' in your house of stone? Safe from the danger zone? 3) I made this bed It's mine and mine alone I've never had time for despair But I hear it's darkest tones 4) I made this bed In my innocence I'm staring at the blurring lines Of a book that makes no sense CHORUS From "Just Let Me Dream" CD © Nancy K. Dillon 2004

Revelation 02:48
Revelation © 2004 Nancy K. Dillon & Tom Hodge 1) Rise up prayin' in the darkest hour There's fire on the mount, blood on the moon Radio's blarin' 'bout the Holy Ghost power "The Saviour's comin' and it's gonna be soon." CHORUS: Revelation, jubilation! Risin' moon caught the blood red sun Revelation, celebration! Raise our voice, each and every one 2) Preacher man says though we don't know the hour "Be lookin' for the signs with a heart that's pure Let the horsemen ride and the nations cower Be washed in the blood and your soul is sure" CHORUS 3) The horn will sound in the twinkle of an eye And the mighty will fall and the meek will rise Heavenly host in the western sky The Lord come down to build a paradise CHORUS From "Just Let Me Dream" CD © Nancy K. Dillon 2004

Play 1 - 4 Susie © 2004 Nancy K. Dillon 1) Susie's always sittin' in the front row Listenin' to the guitar man He could take her places She could understand Eyes closed, swayin' with the rhythm Shot glass in her hand His melody's sigh brings a tear to her eye Listenin' to the band CHORUS: So play one for Susie tonight One more for Susie tonight Play one and make things alright Won't you play one for Susie tonight? 2) Susie didn't care much for dancin' Or talkin' to men she didn't know But she sat in that bar every evening From the first note to the last song Their eyes met on a chorus It was more than she could stand When they packed up she walked out into the night On the arm of the guitar man CHORUS From "Just Let Me Dream" CD © Nancy K. Dillon 2004

Till The Music Dies © 2004 Nancy K. Dillon 1) We'll dance off in the darkness, our story needs no stage As we slowly spin across this hardwood floor You close your eyes as I sing softly in your ear Till the Music Dies, I'll ask no more CHORUS: Only just that you hold me like you want me, take me in you arms We'll take a spin across this hardwood floor Let me live a moment in the eye of this storm Till the Music Dies, I'll ask no more 2) You pull me slightly closer, the music pulses low And colored lights spill on this hardwood floor For now I have forgotten the world outside your arms Till the Music Dies, I'll ask no more CHORUS 3) The magic of this moment's like a shell left on the sand When the wave has broken and it leaves the shore Your smile and touch embedded on my memory soft and warm Till the Music Dies, I'll ask no more CHORUS From "Just Let Me Dream" CD © Nancy K. Dillon 2004

about

Nancy K Dillon Seattle, Washington

On her albums, Nancy K. Dillon maps the road West; the dusty highways that conjure up images like Kerouac's road trips, traveling dustbowl carnivals, and free-spirited 70s hipsters. Inspired by Oklahoma & Texas troubadours Townes Van Zandt, Guy Clark, and Kevin Welch, Dillon's songs are short stories about characters that populate true American life. ... more
