Gray Skies Blues

This post is a bit delayed due to lack of internet connectivity for a a few days. California proved to be gray and drizzly much of our time there. We did have some partly sunny days at Norman and Janet’s house in Arroyo Grande, but also clouds and rain. What happened to sunny California? The weather prompted me to write a new song while driving through southern CA in raindrops and wind:

Let it rain, let it pour, let it rain a whole lot more, cause I got those gray sky blues; Let the rain drive right on, let the wind sweep along, cause I got those gray sky blues;

We left Seattle in a threat of rain, stopped in Oregon and got drowned again, now I got those gray skies blues; California had some sun breaks, but we were so wet any break we’d take, cause we got those gray skies blues.

Leaving LA in our rear view mirror, we headed east without a fear, cause we had those gray skies blues; In Palm Springs we found the sun, folks in shorts having lots of fun, there we lost our gray skies blues.

Here we sit in the valley of the sun, looking forward to much outdoor fun, there’s no more gray sky blues; We’ve settled Picasso in Pat’s driveway, set up our chairs to enjoy the day, we don’t have those gray skies blues.

About Paul

I'm retired, but working at painting, photography, and song writing. We like to travel and paint plein air in new places. Of course that's also where photography comes into the picture, so to speak. Sometimes I get inspired to write songs about the people and places we visit.
