Buckets of Rain

We're in hour 16 of continuous rains & high winds. This is probably the worst May has to offer.

Five Favorite Songs of the Day

Blind Hope-Son Volt, Wide Swing Tremolo

here's one for you, leave one for me...

A Hard Rain's a Gonna Fall-No Direction Home Soundtrack

Oh, what'll you do now, my blue eyed son?
What'll you do now, my darling young one?
I'm a goin' back out 'fore the rain starts a fallin'
I'll walk to the depths of the deepest dark forest,
where the people are many & their hands are all empty,
where the pellets of poison are flooding their waters,
where the home in the valley meets the damp dirty prisons,
where the exectutioner's face is always well hidden,
where hunger is ugly, where souls are forgotten,
where black is the color, where none is the number,
and I'll tell it and think it & speak it & breathe it,
and reflect from the mountains so all souls can see it,
then I'll stand on the ocean until I start sinking,
but I'll know my song well before I start singing,
and it's a hard, it's a hard, it's a hard, it's a hard,
it's a hard rain's a gonna fall...

When the Roses Bloom Again-Wilco, Nashville, 2006

Gonna Be a World of Hurt-Drive By Truckers, A Blessing & a Curse

Volver, Volver-Los Lobos, Just another Band from East LA

Playing this cd at work today brought forth alot of unwanted opinions about immigration. Oh well.

Happy Thursday, friends!

I thought a Hard Rains gonna fall was from the Born on the Fourth of July Soundtrack, is it the same song? I am so bad with music.

With this rain, our well problems, the depressing lyrics of your poem (song?), aren't we glad the "Son" still shines! RWYA
