Lyrics

Red Dress to Frisco

Written By: Dylan & Willi X Evans

She owned an antique mall on the outskirts of town
You could feel that cold wind blowing everytime she'd come around
She left here this evening - clothes in a grocery sack
Hopped a westbound train in the pouring rain and she ain't coming back

And it's a red dress to Frisco, red dress to Frisco, red dress to Frisco and she ain't coming back

There's a dozen yellow roses in the middle of court square
By an old train station sits a man in a rocking chair
He says my baby's coming home - due by today
But you can hear him grieve as the whistle bleeds westward on its way
And he'll drink whiskey to the morning, whiskey to the morning, whiskey to the morning cause she ain't coming back

Found my San Francisco - found my California dreams
Kissed the Pacific and ripped it to its seams
How I miss those southern nights and the man I left behind
Hopped an eastbound train in the pouring rain got Dixie on my mind and its a red dress to Dixie, red dress to Dixie, red dress to Dixie
Lord I'm heading back

All alone in a motel room - Mississippi you're on my mind - I think about you all the time - How it gets me when it hits me - got me turning on a dime

I can see Uncle David playing bass guitar and my ole granddaddy is propped up on the bar
With that red dress shinning you can count on me being there - No need to fuss and you best not cuss cause grandma will be there
For that southern celebration at that deep south congregation we will be in jubilation this red dress is headed east and its a red dress to Dixed, red dress to Dixie, it's a red dress to Dixie Lord I'm headed back
