about

Written May, 2010. The whole time I was writing this song, I knew it was for Rochelle to sing. Hard to hear it without her voice now. Was pleased to have her on stage performing the song with me at the 2011 Riverfolk Festival Songwriting Contest. The song won first place. Whenever I introduce this song I call it "a song of hope.". I think that's right. - J

lyrics

Summer rain is in the air
Summer rain is in the air
Autumn nights won't be the same
Summer rain is in the air

Suit of clothes across the bed
Suit of clothes across the bed
A tie the color of a rose
Suit of clothes across the bed

Don't look down when you go
Don't look down when you go
Turn your head back around
Don't look down when you go

There's a hole in the ground
There's a hole in the ground
Everybody knows
There's a hole in the ground

Length of pine out in the field
Length of pine out in the field
Long black cars all in a line
Length of pine out in the field

Don't look down when you go
Don't look down when you go
Turn your head back around
Don't look down when you go

There's a road up in the sky
There's a road up in the sky
Straight ahead and made of gold
There's a road up in the sky

Don't look down when you go
Don't look down when you go
Turn your head back around
Don't look down when you go

Turn your head back around
Don't look down when you go

about

The Potter's Field Ann Arbor, Michigan

"The Potter's Field defies easy description -- Harmoniously haunting, deceptively simple, painting portraits of real life on the canvas of the listeners' hearts and minds with sepia undertones of edgy eeriness, poignant lyrics and bright splashes of toe-tapping energy." ... more
