RUNAWAY DIXIE – Territory Skies (V. Hermel)

Four times Golden Guitar nominated with their own original material, Runaway Dixie have released 6 albums, and multiple radio singles since the trio’s formation in 2009.

Their new single 'Territory Skies' is a bright upbeat bluegrass style track.
The trio have spent a great deal of time playing in the Northern Territory over the last three years during the winter months, and this new song, written by band member Virginia Hermel, embraces NT scenery and has a toe tapping good time feel.

Featuring Virginia on lead acoustic guitar, Jim on banjo, and Lynette on bass, in bluegrass style, with vibrant harmonies the single’s release will coincide with the trio’s time in the NT over June & July in 2024.

Lyrics

TERRITORY SKIES
Written by V. Hermel. Recorded by Runaway Dixie

The stars are shining bright tonight,
(Under Territory Skies)
The moon is just about to rise
(Under Territory Skies)
Soft breeze stirring in the trees
(Under Territory Skies)
No where else I’d rather be
Just you and me
Under Territory Skies

Sunburnt plains, gorges grand
(Under Territory Skies)
Spinifex, termite mound
(Under Territory Skies)
Where distance never ever ends
(Under Territory Skies)
Maybe we won’t leave again
Just you and I
Under Territory Skies

CHORUS
Where every day is better
Than the day before
Each memory we make,
Keeps adding to the score
And here we are just you and I
Under Territory Skies

1st SOLO

Once you go you’ll understand
(Under Territory Skies)
Thermal Springs, Nature grand
(Under Territory Skies)
Been before I’ll go again
(Under Territory Skies)
Cross the border, scenery change
Just you and I
Under Territory Skies
Under Territory Skies

2nd SOLO

CHORUS
Where every day is better
Than the day before
Each memory we make,
Keeps adding to the score
And here we are just you and I
Under Territory Skies
Under Territory Skies
Under Territory Skies
