"friends, i’m pleased to share “john dyes her hair red” with all of you ahead of tennessee fire’s 20th anniversary. this is one of the first song poems i ever wrote- i always liked the idea of a song being this little picture or puzzle, and not necessarily having to "mean" something or be about some big story or have tons of linear lyrics, but more just painting a weird little scene. i have always tried to make my music gender neutral when it comes to love or romance for the most part, so that a person of any gender could experience a song and not feel excluded if i was using "he's" or "she's" or whatever and this is an early experiment with that, of a person named john, which is traditionally a "male" name, who is dying her hair red and sitting in the shower til it all turns back brown- and maybe one would think- "well why did she ever even dye her hair red in the first place?" -- Jim James
