Lyrics

                          So Gone
                                                                        Rick Hart

I walked into the shop not knowing what I found.
Her shirt was all loose. Her hair was hanging down.
Then out walked the jackal with a straight faced grin,
talking to me like I was born to bend.

Why’d you do it baby? Why this way?
So gone.

I said he looks like something that the cat drug in.
I can see the mouse dangling under your chin.
You got all dressed up just to say goodbye.
How come you didn’t know you didn’t have to lie?

Why’d you do it baby? Why this way?
So gone.

Now what do I say to our little girl
when she asks why there ain’t no room in your world?
You just stepped on us so you could hang your star.
When we look at the sky, we don’t know where you are.

Why’d you do it baby? Why this way?
So gone.

Listeners tell me they're drawn to Journey Dance because they feel it's trying to tell them something.

Texas Americana Blues. Lyrics work the soil deep. Humor lifts the weight.
NOTES
"...absolute dynamite emotion filled blues... True Texas with a groove..." - Bob Fonda, program director, KFLX

"...Every song is about people moving on, or wishing they could ('I don't want to be the one I'm leaving behind'). This searching for redemption over the next hill, or around the next bend of the river, is of course the great theme of American music. But in Hart's songs you're never sure that the river isn't hopelessly polluted (…
