This song speaks for itself. Shout-out’s to the Catskill’s in upstate NY, Harry Brown’s Pot Farm in Maine, and my old band, the Reagan Babies.


I walk through the Valley of the Thunder Gods near the foothills of the Catskill’s.
It was here that I made my lodge on the banks of the Catskill Creek.

Whoa-Ho the wind and the rain.
I wash my soul in the wind and the rain.
Whoa-Ho the wind and the rain.
Turn, turn, turn to the wind and the rain.

I’m walkin on this path for I don’t know how long
And I cleanse myself with a sage stick.
I walk into the fire up on Harry Brown’s Hill
And I pray to the wind and the rain.

The unbearable lightness
of being just who we are.
And we’re falling through darkness,
dancing under the Maine stars


My one time friend be careful when
Your pullin on the puppet strings.
Your bound to get caught with your hand in the pot
and you better make your peace with the Wind and the Rain

It carried the people across the Great Divide and They all landed in Philadelphia! And when I told that story...everyone sitting next to me on the bench all slid over and away from me. But it's true! ... more
