10000 Maniacs – Dallas lyrics
[ Jimmie Dale Gilmore ]



Chorus:
Did you ever see Dallas from a DC-9 at night?
Dallas is a jewel
Yeah, Dallas is a beautiful sight
Dallas is a jungle
But Dallas gives a beautiful light
Did you ever see Dallas from a DC-9 at night?

Now Dallas is a woman who will walk on you when you're down
But when you are up she's the kind you wanna take around
Now Dallas ain't a woman to help you get your feet on the ground
And Dallas is a woman who will walk on you when you're down

Oh, I came into Dallas with the bright lights on my mind
I came into Dallas with a dollar and a dime

Dallas is a rich man with a death wish in his eyes
A steel concrete soul with a warm-hearted love in disguise
A rich man who tends to believe in his own lies
I say, Dallas is a rich man with a death wish in his yes

Oh, I came into Dallas with the brights lights on my mind
I came into Dallas with a dollar and a dime

Chorus
