Dixie Chicks Lyrics for "Fly"


Ready To Run
When the train rolls by
I'm gonna be ready this time
When the boy gets that look in his eyes
I'm gonna be ready this time
When my momma says I look good in white
I'm gonna be ready this time

Chorus: Oh yeah
Ready ready ready ready ready to run
All I'm ready to do is have some fun
What's all this talk about love

I feel the wind blow through my hair
I'm gonna be ready this time
I'll buy a ticket to anywhere
I'm gonna be ready this time
You see it feels like I'm starting to care
And I'm gonna be ready this time

Chorus
I'm ready to run...I'm ready to run
oh
ready ready ready ready ready to run
what's all this talk about love

...I'm ready to run

...I'm ready to run

...I'm ready to run
i'm ready to run... ready to run
ready to run...yeah I'm ready to run...I'm ready
Whoa I ready to run..I'm ready...I'm ready to run...
I'm ready oh I'm ready to run...I'm ready

If I fall You're Going Down With Me
Was it the pull of the moon now baby
That led to you to my door
You say the nights got you acting crazy
I think it's something more
I never felt the earth move honey
Until you shook my tree
Nobody runs from the law now baby
Of love and gravity so strong
Baby you gotta hold on

If I fall you're going down with me
You're going down with me baby if I fall
You can't take back every little chill you gave me
You're going down with me baby heart and all ooh yea

We're hanging right on the edge now baby
The wind is getting stronger
We're hanging by a thread now honey
We can't hold on much longer
It's a long way down but it's too late

If I fall you're going down with me
You're going down with me baby if I fall
You can't take back every little chill you gave me
You're going down with me baby heart and all

Ooh baby I can't get any higher
This time I'm willing to dance on the wire
If I fall ...If I fall

'Cause if I fall you're going down with me
You're going down with me baby if I fall
You can't take back every little chill you gave me
You're going down with me baby heart and all

If I fall...If I fall...oh yeah

Cowboy Take Me Away
I said I wanna touch the earth
I wanna break it with my hands
I wanna grow something wild and unruly

I wanna sleep on the hard ground
In the comfort of your arms
On a pillow of bluebonnets
In a blanket made of stars

Oh it sounds good to me I said
chorus:
Cowboy take me away
Fly this girl as high as you can
Into the wild blue
Set me free oh I pray
Closer to heaven above and closer to you
closer to you

I wanna walk not run
I wanna skin and not fall
I wanna look at the horizon
And not see a building standing tall

I wanna be the only one
For miles and miles
Except maybe for you
And your simple smile

Oh it sounds good to me
Yeah it sounds good to me

Oh it sounds good to me I said
chorus

I said I wanna touch the earth
I wanna break it in my hands
I wanna grow something
wild and unruly
Oh it sounds so good to me

chorus

Cold Day In July

Sun's comin' up comin' up down on main street
Children shout as they're running out to play
Head in my hands here I am
Standing in my bare feet
Watching you drive away (2X)

You said that we were gonna last forever
You said out love would never die
IT looks like spring
And it feels like sunny weather
But it's a cold day in July

Oh Sun's comin' up comin' up
Down on main street
children shout as they're running out to play
whoa head in my hands
here i am standing in my bare feet
watching you drive away
watching you drive away

the moon is full and my arms are empty
all night long how i've pleaded and cried
you always said the day that
you would leave me
would be a cold day in july

here comes that cold day in july
oh yeah oh yeah
lada da la da da la da da
oh ooo

Goodbye Earl
Mary Anne and Wanda were the best of friends
all through their high school days
both members of the 4h club
both active in the FFA
After graduation Mary Anne went lookin'
for a bright new world
Wanda looked all around this town
and all she found was Earl

Well it wasn't two weeks
after she got married that Wanda started gettin' abused
She put on dark glasses and long sleeve blouses
and makeup to cover a bruise
Well she finally got the nerve to file for divorce
she let the law take it from there
But Earl walked through that restraining order
and put her in intensive care

Right away Mary Anne flew in from Atlanta
On a red eye midnight flight
She held Wanda's hand as they worked out a plan
And it didn't take 'em long to decide
That Earl had to die

Goodbye Earl
Those black-eyed peas
They tasted all right to me Earl
You're feelin' weak
Why don't you lay down and sleep Earl
Ain't it dark
Wrapped up in that tarp Earl

The cops came by to bring Earl in
They searched the house high and low
Then they tipped their hats
and said thank you ladies
if you hear from here let us know

Well the weeks went by and Spring turned to Summer
and Summer faded into Fall
Ad it turns out he was a missing person
who nobody missed at all

So the girls bought some land
and a roadside stand
Out on highway 109
They sell Tennessee ham
and strawberry jam
and they don't lose any sleep at night 'cause

Earl had to die
Goodbye Eark
We need a break
Let's go out to the lake Earl
We'll pack a lunch
and stuff you in the trunk Earl
Well is that all right
Good let's go for a ride
Earl hey

Hello Mr. Heartache
Hello Mr. Heartache I’ve been expecting you
Come in and wear your welcome out
They way you always do
You never say if you’re here to stay
or only passing through
so hello Mr. Heartache
I’ve been expecting you

when I don’t feel like company
you make yourself at home
even though you know
id rather be alone
love walked out on me
and didn’t even close the door
next thing I know I’m starin’
at your shadow on the floor

chorus: so hello Mr. Heartache
I’ve been expecting you
come in and wear your welcome out
the way you always do
you never said if you’re here to stay
or only passing through
so hello Mr. heartache
I’ve been expecting you

I wish I could say it’s nice
to see you back again
we’re not exactly strangers
but we’re not exactly friends
you know you’re not invited but
you keep on comin’ round
the last thing that I need it you
to kick me when I’m down
chorus

I’ve been expecting you (3x)

Don’t Waste Your Heart
For the life of me I can’t believe
That you’re on your knees beggin’ please
All the pushin’ away and puttin’ down
Can’t you see you’re gettin’ the run around
Oh it’s plain to see you’d rescue me
From my loneliness so called unhappiness
Oh I didn’t mean to cause you pain
I’ve got nothin’ to lose and nothin’ to gain
And don’t waste your heart on a wild thing
She’s got a soul that won’t settle on one thing
Whoa this bird can’t sing when you’ve tied its wings
Don’t waste your heart on me

It’s funny how the girls get burned
And honest as far as I’m concerned
The tables have turned
And don’t waste you heart on a wild thing
She’s got a soul that won’t settle on one thing
Whoa this bird can’t sing when you’ve tied its wings
Don’t waste your heart on me

And I’m here to apologize
My heart can’t compromise
Don’t waste your heart on me

Sin Wagon
He pushed me ‘round now I’m drawin’ the line
He lived his life now I’m gonna go live mine
I’m sick of wastin’ my time
Well now I’ve been good for way too long
Found my red dress and I’m gonna throw it on
‘Bout to get too far gone

chorus: Praise the lord and pass the ammunition
Need a little bit more of my twelve ounce nutrition
One more helpin’ of what I’ve been havin’
I’m takin’ my turn on the sin wagon

On a mission make something happen
Feel like Delilah lookin’ for Samson
Do a little mattress dancin’
That’s right I said mattress dancin’
chorus

When it’s my turn to march up to glory
I’m gonna have one hell of a story
That’s if he forgives me
Oh Lord please forgive me

Praise the Lord and pass the ammunition
Need a little bit more of that sweet salvation
They may take me with my feet draggin’
But I’ll fly away on a sin wagon
I’ll fly away on a sin wagon

Without You
I’ve sure enjoyed the rainbow I’m looking forward to the sun
You have to feel the pain when you lose the love you gave someone
I though by now the time would take away these lonely tests
I hope you’re doing fin all alone but where do I go from here ‘cause

chorus: Without you I’m not okay and without you
I’ve lost my way
My heart’s stuck in second place ooh
Without you

Well I never through I’d be lying here without you by my side
It seems unreal to me that
the life you promised was a life
You made it look so east
making love into memories
I guess you got what you wanted
but what about me cause
chorus

Somebody tell my head to try to tell my heart
that I’m better off without you
‘cause baby I can’t live

without you I’m not okay
And without you I’ve lost my way
My heart’s stuck in second place ooh
Without you Without you

Some Days You Gotta Dance
It was about five ‘til five on Friday
we were all getting ready to go
and the boss man started screaming
and his veins began to show
he said you and you come with me
‘cause you’re gonna have to stay
my heart was thumping I was jumping
I had to get away

some days you gotta dance
live it up what you get the chance
cause when the world doesn’t make no sense
and you’re feeling just a little too tense
got loosen up those chains and dance

well I was talking with my baby
over a small glass of tea
he asked the loaded question
he said how of you feel about me
my mind was racin’ I was pacin’
but the words just wouldn’t come
and there was one one thing
left to do I feel it comin’ on

some days you gotta dance
live it up what you get the chance
cause when the world doesn’t make no sense
and you’re feeling just a little too tense
gotta loosen up those chains and dance a ha
(2X)

you gotta loosen up those chains and dance
come one and loosen up those chains and dance.

Hole in My Head
Hole in my hear (2X)
Oh I need a boy like you like a hole in my hear
I need a boy like you like a hole in my hear
You make me feel so bad that I wish I was dead

Let the games begin
Yeah here I go again
I’m never gonna win

It must have knocked me crazy it must have hit me hard
People must think I’m lazy
Like my shuffle’s short of a playing card

Wild goose chase (2X)
Oh I need a boy like you like a wild goose chase
I need a boy like you like a wild goose chase
You better find somebody to take my place
Let the games begin
Yeah here I go again

I need a boy like you (I need a boy like you )
I need a boy like you (I need a boy like you )

I need a boy like you
Like a hole in my head
Hole in my head (4X)

Like a hole in my head
I need a boy like you (I need a boy like you )
I need a boy like you (I need a boy like you )

Heartbreak Town
Hugged your friends
Kissed your mama goodbye
Baby in your arms and a tear in your eye
Twelve hundred miles and you never asked why from me
Me and the baby and you side by side
We all knew we was in for a long hard ride
Nowhere to run and nowhere to hide it seemed
We honked the horn when we crossed the state line
Wake up the baby and she started to cry
She must’ve known what we were going to find

This ain’t nothin’ but a Heartbreak town
Square people in a world that’s round
And they watch you dancin’ without a sound
It ain’t nothin’ no nothin’
You take your number and you stand in line
And they watch to see how high you’re gonna climb
Pat on the back ‘n better luck next time
It ain’t nothin no it ain’t nothin’ but a heartbreak town

stardust well it’s a funny thing
it can make you cuss
it can make you sing
and the need to touch it gets hard to explain some days
I’ve seen ‘em rise
I’ve seen ‘em fall
some get nothin’’ and lord some get it all
some just run while others crawl away
hold my hand baby don’t let go
I’ve got some front money
and I’ve got a next show
and I’m gonna need you down this yellow brick road

This ain’t nothin’ but a Heartbreak town
Square people in a world that’s round
And they watch you dancin’ without a sound
It ain’t nothin no nothin’
You take your number and you stand in line
And they watch to see how high you’re gonna climb
Pat on the back ‘n better luck next time
It ain’t nothin’ no it ain’t nothin’ but a heartbreak town
but a heart break town
town
heartbreak town

Let Him Fly
Ain’t no talkin’ to this man
Ain’t no pretty other side
Ain’t no way to understand the stupid words of pride
It would take an acrobat and I already tried all that
I’m gonna let him fly

Things can more at such a pace
The second hand just waved goodbye
You know the light has left his face
But you can’t recall just where or why
So there was really nothing to it
I just went and cut right through it
I said I’m gonna let him fly
Oh yeah

There’s not mercy in a live wire
No rest at all in freedom
Choices we are given
It’s no choice at all
The proof is in the fire
you though before it moves away- yeah
But you must always know how long to stay and when to go

And there ain’t no talkin’ to this man
He’s been trying to tell me so
It took a while to understand
The beauty of just letting to
‘cause it would take an acrobat n’
I already tried all that

I’m gonna let him fly - fly (3x)
