Dixon's Girl
Dessa Lyrics


Oh, someone taught
Your walls to talk
But if they ask me, I ain't heard a thing

Back to the wall
Back to the bar
Back to the drawing board
Back to the drawing board
Back to the drawing board

Again

There was a snow storm in Jackson,
When you and I met,
At a club called Saint Sebastion's,
But the sign said something different.
I remember thinking that I didn't have a shot at Mississippi.
Television told us which roads they were closing.
"There goes the rap show."

Everybody knew you as the wife of a famous man.
Everybody who knew said, "There goes Dixon's girl again.
Even the walls all lean closer, when she plays the piano real slow."

Haven't met so many women in this business that I really like,
But you can hold a little liquor, you can hold the conversation
You can hold your own mic, and,
Even that night, I learned the truth about your man:
You've gotta be big to treat pretty girls bad.

And it's not much, but my money's on you
It's not much, but my money's on you
It's not much, but my money
Not much, but my money
Not much, but my money
My money's on you

Well I heard from the rest of the world, you're in trouble.
Bad news moves like fire that you fight on the phone.
And I'm too far away, my well-wishing can't touch it,
But I think of these things more than you might suppose.

Everybody wanna see you with your hair down,
Wanna hear you hit the high note.
Wanna know what they can get you for a little less, Girl.
I don't. I know.
I had the stones to fly. Had some hard goodbyes.
Call me up, late at night. Free drinks and bad advice.

And it's not much, but my money's on you
It's not much, but my money's on you
It's not much, but my money
Not much, but my money
Not much, but my money
My money's on you

Back to the wall
Back to the bar
Back to the drawing board
Back to the drawing board
Back to the drawing board

And it's not much, but my money's on you.

Well I heard from the rest of the world, you're in trouble.
Bad news moves like fire that you fight on the phone.
And I'm too far away, my well-wishing can't touch you,
But I think of you still, more than you might suppose.
Everybody wanna see you with your hair down,
Wanna hear you hit the high note.
Wanna know if they can get you for a little less, girl.
I don't. I know,
How the stones can fly, had some hard goodbyes.
Call me up, day or night, free drinks and bad advice.
And it's not much, but my money's on you
It's not much, but my money's on you
It's not much, but my money
Not much, but my money
Not much, but my money
My money's on you
Back to the wall
Back to the bar
Back to the drawing board

Dessa is one of the most inspirational female hip-hop artists i have ever came across. I saw her in Chicago new years eve 2014. I cried. She has literally got me through so much shit that no one could touch. Cheers to an awesome soul

femmemommy

Jacque Fairylandmarq, my exact experiences and personal opinion on her too!

Run Now

This was sick, she really mixed genres here.

S M

she came to my school today and performed this live, it's just as good as this one

Greg Kosinski

S M your school should teach you how to separate independent clauses.

luming

+Scizor For Hire that dessa and this dessa are different artists

ChateauOfADoubt

Agent Smith

To think she once sung for a Filipino soap opera.

Jessica Bonds

I love that she can do this kind of thing and then do something like gray duck with doomtree and she is equally suited for both.  such an amazing talent.

Shawn Davis
