Dixie Chicks

The Dixie Chicks are an American country music band which has also crossed over into other genres. The band is composed of founding members (and sisters) Martie Erwin Maguire and Emily Erwin Robison, and lead singer Natalie Maines. The band formed in 1989 in Dallas, Texas and was originally composed of four women performing bluegrass and country music, busking and touring the bluegrass festival circuits and small venues for six years without attracting a major label. After the departure of one bandmate, the replacement of their lead singer, and a slight change in their repertoire, the Dixie Chicks soon achieved commercial success, beginning in 1998 with hit songs "There's Your Trouble" and "Wide Open Spaces". more »

We were young and so inspired 
We weren't the only ones who thought 
We'd change the world 
No sun would set without us 
No one we knew could ever doubt us 

We had our future figured out 
We knew a love like ours would always save the day 
And that we'd always be okay

[Chorus]
But would you know me now?
Would you lay me down beside you
Tell me everything I want to hear
Like that was your favorite year
Like that was your favorite year?

You looked at me like no one else 
But sometimes love just doesn't seem to conquer all 
We search for someone else to blame 
But sometimes things can't stay the same 

[Chorus]

Holding on to the memories 
Of when we were younger 
I can't forget 
'Cause when we were together 
That's when I was at my best 

And would you know me now?
Would you lay me down beside you 
Tell me all the things I long to hear 
Like that was your favorite year 
Like that was your favorite year?
'Cause that was my favorite year
