Summer Rain

“Let the rain kiss you. Let the rain beat upon your head
with silver liquid drops. Let the rain sing you a lullaby.

- Langston Hughes
(01 Feb 1902 - 22 May 1967)

Dear Friends and Schoolmates,

   I think there's an excellent chance that wherever you are today, it's misting, dripping, sprinkling, pouring, storming, or flooding. Of course, that might just be my goofy perception.

Hope all is well with you and your family!

   Hey, Linda, so good to hear from you! I've "moved" you to WA on our Alumni List, but I'm in no mood to tangle with our Contact page at the moment. (I broke it years ago.) Let me know how much of your message you want published.

     From Henry Hoyle ('65) of Northern VA - 06/28/17:

Thank you for the birthday wishes, Cousin Carol. We spent it again at Bike Virginia, where we biked (actually triked) about 250 miles over 6 days in the Lexington and Staunton areas.

Summer Rain

Written by Jim Hendricks (b. 10 Feb 1940)

Recorded by
Johnny Rivers (b. 07 Nov 1942), 1967

Summer rain taps at my window
West wind soft as a sweet dream
My love warm as the sunshine
Sittin' here by me,
she is here by me

She stepped out of the rainbow
Golden hair shinin' like moonglow
Warm lips soft as a soul
Sittin' here by me,
she's here by me

All summer long we spent
dancin' in the sand
And the jukebox kept on playin'
Sergeant Pepper's
Lonely Hearts Club Band

We sailed into the sunset
Drifted home caught by a gulf stream
Never gave a thought for tomorrow
Just let tomorrow be, now,
let tomorrow be

She wants to live in the Rockies
She says that's where we'll find peace
Settle down, raise up a family
To call our own, yeah,
we'll have a home

All summer long
we spent groovin' in the sand
Everybody kept on playin'
Sergeant Pepper's
Lonely Hearts Club Band

The snow drifts by my window
North wind blowin' like thunder
Our love's burnin' like fire
And she's here by me, yeah,
she is here with me
Let tomorrow be
