Biography

The Dawn Maracle's White Flag performs Classic Rock and Country covers and renditions along with original songs written and arranged by Dawn Maracle. The songs are as diverse and interesting as Dawn's musical career.
With influences from Hank Williams Sr., Patsy Cline, The Beatles, Led Zepplin, Grand funk, Jefferson Airplane, Steppenwolf, Jazz Great Nancy Wilson, BB King, Eric Clapton, Bad Company and the Eagles just to name a few. Dawn has written songs in just about every genre including a country rap song written in 1992 well ahead of it's time. When you hear Dawn's songs either live or recorded you'll never get bored not the least of which are her ever changing sounds executed in such a delightful way you can't help but to continue listening. Dawn's live shows show her passion and dedication to her art not only in the writing and arragements of her songs but to the art of showmanship and entertainment.

Dawn Maracle

The extremely dynamic performer, Dawn Maracle, visually and musically captures her audiences, both young and old. True to her passion as a professional entertainer, she is an accomplished award-winning singer and songwriter. Dawn's high-energy and wide vocal range, coupled with her original songwriting (played either solo acoustic or on her electric lead guitar with her band), make for a winning combination. Dawn's original music consists of intertwining classic rock/blues/country/pop into her own unique style of neo classic rock, affectionately known as "Dawn Maracle Music". Dawn's voice has been likened to such greats as Janis Joplin, Patsy Cline and Grace Slick. As a lead guitarist, she shows true ownership of her instrument.

Dawn's career began in Upstate New York and continued through Southern California, Alaska, and Japan.
Dawn's performances include opening for the Coasters,T. Graham Brown, the Alaska State Fair, and special guest appearances on both radio and television.

Dawn currently lives in Austin,Texas and performs in Central Texas and Upstate, New York venues. Dawn will be spending the fall of 2009 performing, as well as concentrating on getting more of her three hundred original songs recorded. Currently twenty-eight of her songs have been recorded, twenty-four of which have been released. Since 2002, Dawn has released three CD's and a Christmas single.

Lyrics

Fly Away

Written By: Dawn Maracle

I need some, some time and some space
Get out of this crazy race
Close my eyes universal ties
Ties that bind
My spirit and mind
Open wings and fly away fly away
White wolves are calling me
On a mountain top over cosmic seas
The wind is blowin' all through my hair
The wind is blowin' it's blowin' every where
Open wings and fly away fly away
Instrumental
Meditation is the key to this door
Relaxation is on a distant shore
Never come back if I could stay
I wanna come back oh everyday
Open wings and fly away fly away
Fly away fly away
Fly away fly away
outro

The Buttercup

Written By: Dawn Maracle

Well, theres not another person that I'd rather be
you ain't got nothin' if you ain't got me
why honey why can't you see
I ani't a gonna tell you if you don't know
You'll never have a woman like what you let go of
go on and try honey try

You roll over in the morning and you see her face
does it look as pretty as mine
is she tellin' you that you are great
Honey is she devine
does she look like a queen is she strong and lean
does she love you till the sun comes up no
There'll never be a day that doesn't go by
that I won't be the buttercup( Oh yea here we go now)

Skat

You roll over in the morning and you see her face
does it look as pretty as mine
is she tellin' you that you are great
Honey is she devine
does she look like a queen is she strong and lean
does she love you till the sun comes up
There'll never be a day that doesn't go by
that I won't be the buttercup
Oh yea that I won't be the buttercup oh no
that I won't be the buttercup oh yea
that I won't be somebody's lo0vin' touchin' squeezin' buttercup
skat do da dey

Suffer Me Not

Written By: Dawn Maracle

SUFFER ME NOT SUFFER ME NOT
SUFFER ME NOT LET IT GO YOU KNOW
IT'S DEAD AND GONE YOU KNOW THAT
NO ONE SHOULD HAVE SUFFERED SO LONG
DEVOURED ME STILL IN YOUR SPIDER WEB
COLD DEATH WAS ALL THAT YOU WERE FED
BURNING FIRE TRIED TO MELT THE ICE
BUT THE COLD ONLY FROZE YOUR EYES YOUR EYES YOUR EYES
ONE FINE DAY YOU'LL WAKE UP AND FIND
YOUR HEART GAVE IN JUST ONE TIME
YEARS HAVE PASSED SINCE THE WORDS WERE SAID
NOW WERE EXISTING ONLY AS LIVING DEAD
NOW WE ARE STRANGERS
TOO LATE WE ARE STRANGERS
CAN'T CHANGE WE ARE STRANGERS
WHAT A SHAME WE ARE STRANGER
INSTRUMENTAL 1
ONE FINE DAY YOU'LL WAKE UP AND FIND
YOUR HEART GAVE IN JUST ONE TIME
YEARS HAVE PASSED SINCE THE WORDS WERE SAID
NOW WERE EXISTING ONLY AS LIVING DEAD
NOW WE ARE STRANGERS
TOO LATE WE ARE STRANGERS
CAN'T CHANGE WE ARE STRANGERS
WHAT A SHAME WE ARE STRANGER
INSTRUMENTAL 2
ONE FINE DAY YOU'LL WAKE UP AND FIND
YOUR HEART GAVE IN JUST ONE TIME
TEARS HAVE PASSED SINCE THE WORDS WERE SAID
NOW WERE EXISTING ONLY AS LIVING DEAD
NOW WE ARE STRANGERS
TOO LATE WE ARE STRANGERS
CAN'T CHANGE WE ARE STRANGERS
WHAT A SHAME WE ARE STRANGER
NOW WE ARE STRANGERS
TOO LATE WE ARE STRANGERS
CAN’T CHANGE WE ARE STRANGERS
WHAT A SHAME WE ARE STRANGERS

Good Luck Bad Luck

Written By: Sometimes you win sometimes you lose

Sometimes you win sometimes you lose
I am told it's only what you choose
You control your life your destiny
But I think that they are blind and do not see
Chorus
Some have blind luck and some do not (ooh no no )
some get it all without a thought ( you know they do you know they do now now)
Still others struggle all their lives they work so hard
Knocked down each time that they try
Who you are you know just where you stand
Hard or not some kill some lend a hand
Deep inside a force is telling you
Good luck bad luck tells you just how you will choose
Chorus
Some have blind luck and some do not (ooh no no )
some get it all without a thought ( you know they do you know they do now now)
Still others struggle all their lives they work so hard
Knocked down each time that they try
Scat Instrumental
Too many times some may want out
While others flash their cash all about
You can never tell who may do what
Insane is sane and sane acts like a nut
Chorus
Some have blind luck and some do not (ooh no no )
some get it all without a thought ( you know they do you know they do now now)
Still others struggle all their lives they work so hard
Knocked down each time that they try
Good luck bad luck Good luck bad luck Good luck bad luck
Good luck bad luck Good luck bad luck Good luck bad luck .....................
ba do ba do ba do da day
ba do ba do ba da do day
good luck bad luck good luck bad luck good luck bad luck good luck bad luck
Oh there's so much old bad luck out there
yea!

I Remember Christmas (and the bright red bulb)

Written By: THERE ON THE BOTTOM OF THE CHRISTMAS TREE

THERE ON THE BOTTOM OF THE CHRISTMAS TREE
HUNG A BULB BRIGHT AND RED
A CHILDS FACE LOOKING BACK AT ME
GAZING AWE STRUCK INNOCENCE
A MEMORY NOT SOON FORGOTTEN, VIVID AFTER ALL THESE YEARS
AND WITH EACH CHRISTMAS COMES THAT BRIGHT RED BULB
HANGING HIGHER ON THE TREE UP THERE
CHORUS:
I REMEMBER CHRISTMAS AS IT WAS WHEN I WAS YOUNG
I REMEMBER CHRISTMAS AND THE BRIGHT RED BULB THAT HUNG (FROM THE TREE) I REMEMBER CHRISTMAS
THE FACE OF MY CHILD STILL IN THE BULB
I REMEMBER CHRISTMAS THAT'S THE WAY I ALWAYS WILL REMEMBER CHRISTMAS
NOW THERE ARE OTHER LITTLE ONES WHO'S FACES WILL BE SEEN
FROM THE BOTTOM OF A CHRISTMAS TREE IN A BULB BRIGHT RED (MAYBE GREEN) SO ONCE AGAIN IT HANGS LOW ON THE BOTTOM
JUST LIKE IT DID WHEN I WAS A LITTLE CHILD NOW ANOTHER LITTLE FACE INSTEAD (LOOKS IN THE BULB) WILL SING
CHORUS
SO MANY CHRISTMAS'S AGO SO MANY THAT HAVE PAST
I WONDER WILL THEIR MEMORY FADE OR BE LIKE MINE AND LAST
TO SEE THE FUTURES CHILDREN
AS THEY'RE GAZING IN A BRIGHT RED BULB
WONDERING JUST LIKE I DID WHAT WOULD THE FUTURE HOLD
WILL THEY BE SINGING
CHORUS

Pressure

Written By: Right now I wish you could stand in my shoes

Right now I wish you could stand in my shoes
You think it's so easy to do what I do
I don't think you even care about me anyway
That's why I keep pushin' your pressure away
Ive got pressure pressure pressure pressure
I've got it on my mind
I've got pressure pressure pressure pressure
I've got it on my mind all the time
You don't want to be here with me tonight
tomorrow you will tell me that every thing is all right
I don't intend to look for someone new
I know they will only turn out to be like you
and give me pressure pressure pressure pressure
you put it on my mind
you give me pressure pressure pressure pressure
you give it to me all of the time
you know a big bed is much better when your sleepin' all alone
and my bed feels much better when ever you are gone
yea and my bed is not for the game of the day
my bed is just for me huh to get away
from all this pressure pressure pressure pressure
I've got on my mind
I've got pressure pressure pressure pressure
I've got it on my mind all the time
you give me pressure pressure pressure pressure
you put it on my mind
you give me pressure pressure pressure pressure
you give it to me all of the time

Two People

Written By: Dawn Maracle

Two People
Dawn Maracle
Two people on a rock looking down on the world they say
Two people on a rock oh what a day
Two people on a rock and the light shone down on them
Two people in love in love again
Two people were walking in paradise they say
nobody but them that day
If anyone asked it would always be this way
until a cold and snowy day
Look away Look away Look away can you look away
Look away Look away Look away sometimes you gotta look away
sometimes the story books have endings
not quite the way that we'd have planned
and when the cards have all been dealt out
sometimes you need another hand
Look away Look away Look away can you look away
Look away Look away Look away sometimes you gotta look away
Snow white has played a larger part now
and Cinderella had to leave the ball
cause virgin white took Charming's head and heart now
and golden coaches are just pumpkins after all
Look away Look away Look away can you look away
Look away Look away Look away sometimes you gotta look away
Two people on a rock looking down on the world they say
Two people on a rock oh what a day
Two people on a rock and the light shone down on them
Two people in love in love again
Two people in love and they walk away
Two people in love and they look away
