about

This is an original Christmas song we wrote in December 2013 as temperatures soared and California sank into a prolonged drought.

Stay tuned for the release of Owl Country's first album. Over the summer of 2014, we recorded a full collection of songs in a resonant one-room schoolhouse built in 1906. The duet material comes alive alongside a wonderful band and guests artists, including David Grisman on mandolin and Charlie Musselwhite on harmonica.

lyrics

Long Gentle Rain

Christmas day in the driest year yet
Living as if nothing has changed
Give it all away for a sky cold and wet
Will the hills please be green once again

California is doomed to dusty days
Still tonight they’ll be drinking champagne
We dance to a world up in flames
All I want is your long gentle rain
All I want is your long gentle rain

Christmas day in the driest year yet
Just another day at the beach
I'd trade it all away for a big red umbrella
And a storm coming out of the north

California is doomed to dusty days
Still tonight they’ll be drinking champagne
We dance to a world up in flames
All I want is your long gentle rain
All I want is your long gentle rain

Fat man down the chimney, that old jingle jangle
Wise men round the babe in the hay
Say let’s unravel the knot in this tangle
Make it right, Make it right, Right as rain

Christmas day in the driest year yet
All I want is your long gentle rain
