about

my love song to a city...another song of escape and redemption but also forgiveness

From "Roses Guide To Time Travel" CD
© Nancy K. Dillon 2010

lyrics

Portland

Portland...
City of roses and rain
City of rivers and trains roll in
To your station
Portland...
City that lets me forget
Eases my head when a bet's gone bad
Sweet amnesia

CHORUS:
Go pack your bags now
No time to delay now
All the signs point to a way we might leave here
And drift through the night south
To a town by the river's mouth
Lost souls could be found there
Let's point the car south to Portland

Portland...
Many are drawn to your doors
Music pours out and your bars don't close
Sweet oblivion
Portland...
Banjos and fiddles abound
Hipsters in thrift store clothes found their way
To your neon

CHORUS

Portland...
City of mists and of dreams
Thinking of you makes me feel so clean
Sweet forgiveness

Double CHORUS

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
