Border Wall Blues

While in California we observed how many of the people serving us were of hispanic origin, most of whom spoke Spanish to each other. They contribute to the community and pay taxes through payroll deduction. What does the prospect of a border wall mean to them and their families? What does it mean to California business?

Driving down through northern California and then upon our return to Sonoma County we saw the effects of two years of devastating forest fires. Were these really caused by our failure to cut trees as our President implied? Could climate change be part of the cause? Are we listening to scientists? Will 2019 see more fires?

I was moved to write and record The Border Wall 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.

    Hello, Paul. Great! Thank you for bringing me back to the sixties! I love your song; I was expecting Joan Baez and Peter, Paul & Mary to follow after you. Terrific and, alas, so relevant. As always.
