Dime Box

Dime Box

BandAmericanaCountry

Smooth sweet vocals meet lightning-fast picking, Dime Box are the girls next door, if the girls next door just happened to have a damn good country band. Sounds Like: Tammy Wynette singing Gram Parsons songs if Roy Acuff was backing. Home-grown music in a store-bought world.

Biography

“Dime Box is Kristi Callan's (formerly of Wednesday Week) latest musical project. Picture the Flying Burrito "Sisters" and you'll get the idea. I like everything about this band, from their harmonies to the dresses which make them look like actresses performing a scene from a summer stock production of "The Grapes of Wrath." I am entirely sold on their high lonesome sound." Steve Thorne's blog

*Betsy*

Betsy
You stop feeling bad now
You hear me?
Won't you come on home now
We miss you
You'd be better off here you know

Hey Betsy
The weather's nice out here by the ocean
The air is clean
Yeah, you can breathe
You'd be happier at home

WHAT MADE YOU GO?
WHAT MADE YOU RUN?
WAS IT A MAN
WITH A GUN?

Betsy
How long has it been since you took me
To the dollar store and you asked them
How much everything cost?

WHAT MADE YOU GO?
WHAT MADE YOU RUN?
IT'S NOT TOO LATE
TO RETURN

What keeps you there?
What makes you care?
Why can't you just let go?
Just let go!
