I Hear America Singing -Drought

I_Hear_America_Singing_BKG.png

On I Hear America Singing this week, host Ross Burns share songs about a perennial problem here in Texas, drought and it’s solution – rain. This show came from a suggestion by one of the IHAS faithful listeners.

Woody Guthrie goes Blowin’ Down That Old Dusty Road while Mance Lipscomb lament It Ain’t Gonna Rain No More. Willie Nelson shares Mexia’s songbird Cindy Walker’s song Dusty Skies. Ruthie Foster is Prayin’ for Rain, and Nanci Griffith says I Wish It Would Rain, From the Peruvian Andes, Inka Wayra shares the haunting Song of the Rain, and Rosalie Sorrels wishes If I Could Be the Ran. And. Of course there always has to be some contrarians out there, so the Serendipity Singers join in with Don’t Let the Rain Come Down.

Hear these and more with Ross Burns on I Hear America Singing on KWBU -Waco Public Radio.
