Written by Ed McGinley & Les Keye


Once we stood on a wide open highway
Sun was shining bright in the sky
Far we flew, we were never arriving
There we blew the best of our lives…
The best that we could ever be
You and me, we belonged together
You and me, we had so much sun
Now the rain is falling down again
The rain is falling down

Once we saw clouds on the horizon
Looked for cover under the trees
Thought we’d find a distant silver lining
Thought we knew how to keep ourselves free…
Forever and a day
You and me, we believed in karma
You and me, thought we’d take our turn
You and me, didn’t make a drama
You and me didn’t know the clouds had returned...

Now the rain is falling down again
The rain is falling down
The rain is falling down again
The rain is falling down

Cover up your head, boy
It’s gonna drop a line on you

The Winters Norfolk Island

Steeped in the sound of classic American folk musics—blues, country, RnB, soul, Appalachian—they emerge with their own identity, some kind of hybrid of Roy Orbison and the Sir Douglas Quintet… oscillating between moody and clubby.
