Saturday Classics – 11032023

I discoved his music, all by myself way back in late 1980’s, while stopping to a record shop to buy something different, I went to buy Robert Gray album, instead of buying only that album I also bought this album, Bring the family, I did not regret it.

This song isn’t the most recognized, that would be ”Have A Little Faith In Me”, I’m sure.

John Hiatt is an American singer-songwriter. He has played a variety of musical styles on his albums, including new wave, blues, and country. Hiatt has been nominated for nine Grammy Award and has been awarded a variety of other distinctions in the music industry.

He has said this: I call myself a singer-songwriter, but I’m a pretty good rhythm guitar player and there’s something to be said for that. Bob Dylan is also a pretty good rhythm guitar player – Edward Van Halen couldn’t do what Dylan does as a rhythm player.

There’s a lipstick sunset
Smeared across the August sky
There’s a bitter sweet perfume
Hanging in the fields
The creek is running high

And I left my lover waiting
In the dawn somewhere to wonder why
By the end of the day
All her sweet dreams would fade
To a lipstick sunset

Well, a radio was playing
And that ol’ summer heat was on the rise
I just had to get away
Before some sad old song
Brought tears to my eyes

And Lord I couldn’t tell her
That her love was only killing me
By the end of the day
All her sweet dreams would fade
To a lipstick sunset

Well it’s pretty as a picture baby
Red and blushing just before the night
Maybe love’s like that for me
Maybe I can only see
As you take away the light

So hold me in the darkness
We can dream about the cool twilight
‘Til the dawning of the day
When I make my getaway
To a lipstick sunset
