lyrics

Bluegrass Moon

Written By: Willi X Evans, Dylan Evans

There's a bluegrass moon out tonight
The stars are burnin' up a mandolin sky
There's a bluegrass moon out tonight and the dobro's reflectin' the love that's in your eyes

How I love those southern summer nights spent dancing in your arms -Floatin' like I'm on clover drenched by mornin' dew your smile to keep me warm
How I love you next to me so take my hand take my heart - Let us hold onto this night like a player his guitar

I hear a lonely melody comin' from the band and then I notice how you look at me like no other can
Out among the haystacks we run barefoot and free - You are the music of my soul - You are the singer's melody

Red Dress to Frisco

Written By: Willi X Evans, Dylan Evans

She owned an antique mall on the outskirts of town - you could feel that cold wind blowin' every time she'd come around - she left here this evenin' - clothes in a grocery sack - hopped a west bound train in the pourin' rain she ain't comin' back
And it's a red dress to Frisco, red dress to Frisco, red dress to Frisco and she ain't comin' back
There's a dozen yellow roses in the middle of court square - by an ole train station sits a man in a rockin' chair - He says my baby's comin' home - due by today - You can hear him grieve as the whistle bleeds westward on its way
And he'll drink whiskey to the mornin', whiskey to the mornin', whiskey to the mornin' - cause she ain't comin' back
Found my San Fancisco - 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 pourin' rain got Dixie on my mind
And it's a red dress to Dixie, red dress to Dixie, red dress to Dixie - Lord I'm headin' back

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

I can hear uncle David playin' bass guitar - and my ole granddaddy is propped up on the bar - with that red dress shinnin' you can count on me bein' there - there's 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 it's a red dress to Dixie, red dress to Dixie, red dress to Dixie - Lord I'm headin' back
