Cassiopeia
Heidi Muller Lyrics


Night hawk flyin' in the darkness
The city lights far from their flight
A cloud's silhouette hangs far to the west
Above us the clear spring sky

Cassiopeia, dance with Orion tonight
Cassiopeia, with the silvery light in your eyes.

Hardly a car on the highway
And hardly a light on the road
Just the ruby shine of coyote eyes
And the midnight stars all aglow

Cassiopeia, dance with Orion tonight
Cassiopeia, with the silvery light in your eyes.

Somewhere east of Othello
I saw her black velvet gown
Strewn with thousands of rhinestones
And the north star there in her crown

Cassiopeia, dance with Orion tonight
Cassiopeia, with the silvery light in your eyes.

Orion is the bold hunter
A sword of three stars he does bear
Beckons the Lady to come to his side
Your Majesty, rise from your chair

Cassiopeia, dance with Orion tonight
Cassiopeia, with the silvery light in your eyes.

Cassiopeia, dance with Orion tonight
Cassiopeia, with the silvery light in your eyes.

Cassiopeia, dancin' tonight

Thank you, Heidi and Bob.
We saw your Harrington concert and were moved to tears there in the front row where we could feel your spirit in every song. When I lived in NYC, I drove home to Nebraska with my boys every summer, and we looked for all of the constellations together as we crossed the country. My boys were skate boarders, so many a night on the road, we'd stop somewhere so they could skate a little, and it was then that I looked up into the night sky and felt so thankful for my boys and for my life of travel and adventure with four boys. We love your stories in your songs and are most grateful for your spirit and your care. Each song tells of a humble, mindful storyteller. Please continue to tell your stories and others' stories in your songs. Giving voice to those on the margins is at the heart of feminist art and music that we love and embrace always. Travel safely and return to Washington someday soon. Love, LaVona

Yes, you will see us again sometime, Heidi.
Keep up the wonderful work.
Your voice and messages are so good for all of us.

Travel safely and have fun.

Sincerely,
L.

Heidi Muller

Thank you so much, LaVona, for your kind words. It means a lot to us both to know that there are people who are listening deeply and resonate with the songs. Your noticing of spirit and storytelling will go with me this week as I head off to a songwriters' festival. I especially like your comment about giving voice to those on the margins. Thank you! Hope we'll see you again sometime.

Love this song!  Just a wonderful well written song!
I remember  hearing you sing this song years ago when you played an afternoon house concert in or near Fullerton, California I believe.  Do you have a video of "Sandlewood Down to Kyle" available to upload on YouTube?  Thank you.

This email says it's from Smiley Gatmouth ... No idea who that is, but my name is Judi Shulgold!

That house concert may have been at our home in Long Beach. Heidi remains a great pal, as do all of the wonderful musicians that played our house concerts ... Steve Gillette, Mary McCaslin (who are both dear, dear friends) I could go on and on, but the house concerts were such a blessing. Produced 'em for 15 years out ther in Long Beach and again here in CO for 5 years or so.
