About Me

These are some songs the Chicks have performed but have not released on a Dixie Chicks CD.

Lucky Ones - Originally written for the movie of the same title, Lucky Ones debuted on December 1, 2008 at RED(wire), a digital music magazine.

Written by Emily Robison, Marty Strayer, Dan Wilson

I knew you well before I ever heard your name
Cause I've been there through hell and home again
It might be broken but at least we've seen the truth
All I know is I've got you to hang onto

Hey, baby we're the lucky ones
Oh, hey, baby, we're the lucky ones
When the last long night is done
If we find our way back home
Oh, we're the lucky ones

We lose our friends in the sea and vanish every day
And dreams can fade when you don't come back the same
When I got here it felt strange somehow
People I once knew seem different to me now

Hey, baby we're the lucky ones
Oh, hey, baby, we're the lucky ones
When the last long night is done
If we find our way back home
Oh, we're the lucky ones

Don't know what to feel like these days
Is it gonna end, is it ever gonna change
We'll get back one day
Sweats at night
Cars on fire
As long as we're alive

Hey, baby we're the lucky ones
Oh, hey, baby, we're the lucky ones
When the last long night is done
If we find our way back home
Oh, we're the lucky ones

The Neighbor - The Chicks started performing this song in concert during the Accidents & Accusations tour in Australia. It was written for Shut Up & Sing by Emily, Natalie, Martie, Pete Yorn and Gary Louris. These lyrics are from the extended studio version and not the version that was available at iTunes.

Don’t let them tell you what it’s all about
I’m right beside you, a dreamer you can do without
I know you well, but we’ve never met
Always the same, always the safe bet.

I know what’s happening, I’ve seen it before
Uninvited, I’ll be coming to your back door
Lock all your windows, hide under your bed
I hear you breathing, I know you’re there

You can turn off the light
You can turn off your mind
You can shut me out

But I’ll still be here
I'll still be here
You can turn me off and try to shut me down
But I’ll still be here

You want to see things all the same
Why don’t you see things in color for a change
I’m waiting and listening, trying to walk in your shoes
They walk a straight line, such a straight line

I’ll drop my fences, if you drop your guard
Meet me on the front porch stop hiding in your backyard
Unlock your windows, come out from the bed
Your tv's glowing, I know you're there

You can turn it around
Til you like how it sounds
You can turn me off

But I’ll still be here
I’ll still be here
You can turn me down but I'll just shout it out,
I’ll still be here

Who did away with empathy
How do you love without sympathy
And who will be the one that still believes

It's the powerless who seem to fall
Between the cracks of those who have it all
And who's gonna be the one to speak for me

I’ll still be here
I’ll still be here
(repeats with Martie and Emily harmonies)

I'll still be here
When you like it or not
Oh I’ll be here
(repeats with Martie and Emily harmonies)

Even when you're not
When you think I forgot

Come out in your backyard Monday
Let's meet on your front porch Friday

I’ll still be here
(repeats to fade out)

Wherever You Are - This song was a duet with Deryl Dodd and originally intended to be on the Fly album. The reason why it didn't make the cut can be found in question #23 at  DixieChicksFAQ

Natalie: Front door slammed and the back door too
Deryl: You left me and I left you
Natalie: Meeting in the middle was a little too hard
Both: I still love you wherever you are

Deryl: Well I reckon we must be two of a kind
Natalie: Both go a little too far sometime
Deryl: First step back is the hardest part
Both: I still love you wherever you are

Chorus
Natalie: You might be out walking
            Talking yourself out of loving me
Deryl: You might be honky-tonking
          Making eyes at everything you see
Natalie: And it's killing me
            With every beat of this broken heart
Both: I still love you wherever you are

(Instrumental break - fiddle & electric guitar)

Natalie: Wherever you've gone whatever you've done
Deryl: I want you to know you're the only one
Natalie: Just hope you haven't gone too far
Both: I still love you wherever you are

Repeat Chorus

Natalie: I still love you
Deryl: I still love you
Natalie: I still love you
Deryl: I still love you
Natallie: Wherever you are
Deryl: Wherever you are
Natalie: I still love you
Deryl: I still love you
Natalie: I still love you
Deryl: I still love you
Deryl: Wherever you are
Natalie: I still love you
Deryl: I still love you
Both: I still love youuuuuuu
Natalie: Wherever you are
Deryl: Wherever you are
Natalie: Wherever you are
Deryl: Wherever you are
Natalie: Wherever you are
Deryl: Wherever you are
Natalie: Wherever you are
Deryl: Wherever you are
Natalie: I still love you

The Love Police - performed on Nashville Now 6/4/93 and The Texas Connection 7/12/93
written by Janet Dowling and Michael Downing

Well he's a sweet-talkin' devil, kind of long and lean
A real lady-killer if you know what I mean
A hit and run lover like you never saw
I think somebody ought to call the law

Call the love police
Call the love police
Somebody call the love police

Well he's a smooth operator, think you know the kind
A two-timin' rascal with a one-track mind
But he stole my heart like a thief in the night
When morning came around he was nowhere in sight

Call the love police
Call the love police
Somebody call the love police
Call the love police
Take that man away

He's stealin' hearts and leavin' em all over town
He's a no-good-timin' son of a gun
There's gotta be a law against such foolin' around
Somebody dial 9-1-1

Call the love police
It's a job for the love police
Well he's a real heartbreaker and if I had my say
The love police'll take that man away

He's stealin' hearts and leavin' em all over town
He's a no-good-timin' son of a gun
There's gotta be a law against such foolin' around
Somebody dial 9-1-1

Call the love police
It's a job for the love police
Well he's a real heartbreaker and if I had my say
The love police'll take that man away

Somebody call the love police (hey, hey)
Somebody call the love police (hey, hey)
Somebody call the love police (hey, hey..)
Somebody call the love police

The Price I Pay - performed during many concerts in late 90's
written by Chris Hillman and Bill Wildes

They tell me I'm the talk of the town
I've been staying home alone every night
It's nobody's business where I'm bound
As if to be alone and lonely just ain't right

On a old freight train moving down the line
I'm counting each day every minute that you're away
I've never been the stay at home kind
But for you it's just the price that I pay

It's just the price that I pay for loving you
The price I pay for needing you so much
The price I pay for needing you
And putting all this time between us

I knew I was in trouble when we met
Dark clouds all around me I couldn't find the light
These hard times ain't hard to forget
Now I believe in love at first sight

I'm putting my heart and soul on the line
I know your love is with me every day
Your picture always there on my mind
But for you it's just the price that I pay

It's just the price that I pay for loving you
The price I pay for needing you so much
The price I pay for needing you
And putting all this time between us

Hey Dixie - performed during many concerts in late 90's

Hey Dixie
I can hear you calling
Hey Dixie
I can hear you calling me
Hey Dixie
I can hear you
I can hear you calling
Hey Dixie
I can hear you calling me

L.A. New York bound
Sure does bring me down
Seems like something's talking to me
Saying you've been here too long
Singing that same ol song
Got to get it on
Down in Dixie

Hey Dixie
I can hear you calling
Hey Dixie
I can hear you calling me
Hey Dixie
I can hear you
I can hear you calling
Hey Dixie
I can hear you calling me

Music in the streets
Flowers smelling sweet
Something I can get so close to
Yeah, the sunshine is shining bright
whipperwhill in the night
Singing songs
Down in Dixie

Hey Dixie
I can hear you calling
Hey Dixie
I can hear you calling me
Hey Dixie
I can hear you
I can hear you calling
Hey Dixie
I can hear you calling me

Good times waiting there
Honeysuckles in the air
Love is free down by the river
That Texas moon filled sky
Ya know it's gonna make me high
Got to get it on
Down in Dixie

Hey Dixie
I can hear you calling
Hey Dixie
I can hear you calling me
Hey Dixie
I can hear you
I can hear you calling
Hey Dixie
I can hear you calling me

Love Me Like A Man - performed on Austin City Limits 1999
written by Chris Smither

The men that I've been seeing
Well they got their soul up on a shelf
You know they could never love me
Cuz they can't even love themselves

But I want someone to love me
Baby I want one to understand
Won't put himself above me
Who can love me like a man

I never seen such losers
Even though I tried
Find a mind to take me home instead of
Taking me for a ride

Baby, I use someone to care
Believe it when I tell you darlin'
You can love me like a man

Oh they want me to rock them
Like my back ain't got no bone
I want a man whose gonna rock me
Like my backbone was his own

Baby, I want to wait until you can
Believe it when I tell you darlin'
You can love me like a man

Come home sad and lonely
Feel like I wanna cry
Come over here and hold me baby
And don't ever ask the reason why
I said I, I want a lover
Won't have to work to understand

Don't put yourself above me baby
Love me like a man


That Lonesome Road
- performed on Austin City Limits 2001
written by Don Grolnick and James Taylor

Walk down that lonesome road all by yourself
Don't turn your head back over your shoulder
And only stop to rest yourself when the silver moon
Is shining high above the trees

If I had stopped to listen once or twice
If I had closed my mouth and opened my eyes
If I had cooled my head and warmed my heart
I'd not be on this road tonight

Carry on
Never mind feeling sorry for yourself
It doesn't save you from your troubled mind

Walk down that lonesome road all by yourself
Don't turn your head back over your shoulder
And only stop to rest yourself when the silver moon
Is shining high above the trees

The Rainbow Connection - on Mary Had A Little Amp CD

written by Paul Williams

Why are there so many songs about rainbows
And what's on the other side?
Rainbows are visions, but only illusions,
And rainbows have nothing to hide.
So we've been told and some choose to believe it
I know they're wrong, wait and see.
Someday we'll find it, the rainbow connection,
The lovers, the dreamers and me.

Who said that every wish would be heard and answered
when wished on the morning star?
Somebody thought of that
and someone believed it,
and look what it's done so far.
What's so amazing that keeps us stargazing?
And what do we think we might see?
Someday we'll find it, the rainbow connection,
the lovers, the dreamers and me.

All of us under its spell,
we know that it's probably magic....

Have you been half asleep
and have you heard voices?
I've heard them calling my name.
Is this the sweet sound that calls the young sailors?
The voice might be one and the same.
I've heard it too many times to ignore it.
It's something that I'm supposed to be.
Someday we'll find it, the rainbow connection,
the lovers, the dreamers and me.
La, la la, La, la la la, La Laa, la la, La, La la laaaaaaa
