one hot summer day in the Texas Panhandle my sister and I drove straight into the teeth of a big ol' storm. I was thinking of that day and how I love porch swings when I wrote this song

Looks Like Rain

Looks like rain off in the distance
On the plains, up in the hills
Cold North wind blows the porch swing
Come on in or you'll get chilled
Come on in, Looks like rain

Once our days were sweet and sunny
Our long evenings ended wild
Once our dawns brought dreams and danger
But that's all done now, ain't it, child?
Summer's gone, now it looks like rain

I never saw the sky so black
Or clouds in fond embrace with frozen ground
I want to take off running
To the center of the storm
Bearing down right now

Looks like rain, I can hear the thunder
Loud as open gates of hell
Sounds like rolling dice down under
When it comes, you just can't tell
Come on in, looks like rain

You'll never see the wind look back
Or waste a single breath upon the past
I want to take off running
To the center of the storm
Bearing down so fast

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
