A great song for fall
be sure to crack open an Octoberfest beer while listening to this one, preferably the Great Lakes Version.
Also be sure to think of the lovely colors in the Hocking Hill this time of year.
Apple Cider


The daytime was made for the workers
they build the roads and the houses we know
the night time was made for the lovers
we hide inside when there's no place to go

cause its closer, closer my dear
follow me down to the fire
the evening air is so sweet
and the night could be ours for a while

As the sun went down o'er the hills of the Hocking
I closed my eyes and felt the warm breeze
I thought of my girl, and her gold curls a-shining
I close my eyes and fall on my knees


When summers here, we count up the days
nighttime we count up our dreams
when fall comes and the harvest comes in
things aren't as bad as they seem


Last summer you told m you'd call
I waited right there by the phone
the shutters closed, the light all turned off
and i cried all night long there alone
a letter left on my door
a suit case left there on the floor
a long cold winter alone
no chance of seeing my home
so save me, save me my dear
I'm not strong enough here alone
