lyrics

Dust be my Destiny
by Jackson Slade
BMI c 1982

People keep telling me, that you gonna lose
If you don't stop living the life that you choose
You know, I think I can see it, 'n' I'm always amazed
The the mind takes control, when you think you're a slave

To say what a feeling, can do to your soul
Can sometimes leave you dieing
When the breakdown leaves you cold
I finally discovered there's no more to deny
They try to keep where they want you till the day that you die

Chorus: Still, I can see the light change, closing out to the nite
Takes all this suffering clean out of sight
I'll saddle up this strange wind, ride my life for the truth
But, if dust be my destiny, then take me at midnite blue..

If you've got your reasons for wasting my time
Remember what that feeling can do to your mind
I'm gonna pray that I make it, that might tell me what to do
God I need you more than ever to help me

Chorus: Still, I can see the light change, closing out to the nite
Takes all this suffering clean out of sight
I'll saddle up this strange wind, ride my life for the truth
But, if dust be my destiny, then take me at midnite blue..
Take me at midnite blue...
Oh lord won't you get me ?

about

Jackson Slade Lewisburg, Tennessee

"Style of music is hard to give a
specific Genre to.. My Spanish roots
come to the surface in my rhythms, and
melodies to some extent. I've always
loved all styles of music, and I guess
my motivation comes from loving how,
through music, we make the world
warmer and smaller, not so vast.
I guess you could say I'm
Rock/Country/Jazz/Pop/Blues/Latin Blues and a few more things too ugly to mention"
