No Goodbyes

Long ago I left my home
In a yellow Rambler American
Following the footsteps
Of Woody and Jack Kerouac
The highway lines became a circle
North to South and East to West
So my heart became a compass
Points to those I love the best

No goodbyes, no, you ain't seen the last of me
No goodbyes, no, you won't see me cry
No goodbyes, where I see circles you see lines
No goodbyes

Senorita had a vision
Way down in Old Mexico
Something told her, "Ride in quickly!
Quiet like a silent ghost."
She dressed in her best black mantilla
Saddled up and rode to town
She found him in Rosita's bed
She pulled her gun and shot him down


His mama said, "Son, wait a year."
His daddy said, "You're out of here!"
Sister says, "The road is lovely,
Long and lean and knows no fear."
He grabbed his guitar, kissed his sister
Out the screen door to his truck
He said, "I'll write when I get work
But in the meantime, wish me luck."

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
