The Songs

Thanks to the great Don Dixon, the Lassie James songs are coming to life. Look for the album in early 2019.

Inspired by the Lassie James novel, “Fair-Skinned Brunette with the Porcelain Shine”

The Album

Meantime, check out a demo of “She’s a Baptist and a Communist.”

She’s a Baptist and a Communist By Don Dixon & John Bare © 2018

She’s the feminist I want to kiss

A Baptist and a Communist

 

She’s got immunity from powers that be

Winks at the sheriff, he pretends he doesn’t see

 

Keeps her bullets with her Bible

Doesn’t shave above her knee

 

Wears a scarf she stole from Newport

And a ring from Galilee

 

She’s a Baptist and a Communist

Shot her man when he raised his fist

 

She’s the feminist I want to kiss

A Baptist and a Communist

A Baptist and a Communist

 

She’s got a happy face but under those bangs

Her mind is always working to facilitate some change

 

Organizing hotel maids

Marching for a living wage

 

By the jail she kneels and whispers

Oh, God please calm my rage

 

She’s a Baptist and a Communist

Shot her man when he raised his fist

She’s the feminist I want to kiss

A Baptist and a Communist

A Baptist and a Communist

Ohhh, ohhh,

A Baptist and a Communist
