Rain Don't Follow The Plow 

Yep. We had just a hint, the merest whiff of rain here at the House Of Strays last week. Usually by this time of year our monsoon season is in full swing, with temps down in the low 100s and humidity up from 8% to 25% or so. Like everything else in 2020, however, the weather seems to be at odds with "normal" too. Oh well. There's still nothing like the scent of the desert just before a rain - the combination of Mesquite, Brittle Bush and Creosote and dust. At least we had that evening last week.

Living in the desert we are given proof every day that rain don't follow the plow.

But here's a tune from my 4th CD Road Of Man. It's called "Rain Don't Follow the Plow". I hope you enjoy it. No need for an umbrella. Please stay well and safe. 

Rain Don’t Follow The Plow 

Heat rises in the dusty field 
Toil in the rows 
Pray for strength, pray for yield 
Sweat and grief and tears and woe 

Lackluster moon in a bloody sky 
Rain don’t follow the plow 

Some say the devil owns this land 
Many sow his bitter seed 
See here the workings of his hand 
Many hungry mouths to feed 

Lackluster moon in a bloody sky 
Rain don’t follow the plow 

False rain falls from the sky 
Carrion crows take to wing 
Not from heaven do they fly 
Baleful tidings do they bring 

Lackluster moon in a bloody sky 
Rain don’t follow the plow
