The proceeds from this song go to 'Take Back The Court:'
This organization's mission is to inform the public about the danger that the Supreme Court poses to democracy, and about the viability of court expansion as the only strategy that re-balances the court.

Lyrics by Jonathan Vassar


A 46 mile run down the mountains
to the Hudson, at Dutchman’s Landing.

Catskill Creek sleeps by orange hawkweed.
Its bed a wreath of mountain laurel

I don’t worry.
Away from the city.
I take it all in and let it all go

No need to hurry.
Away From everything.
I think of Dylan watching the river flow.

Up creek in Willow our fire burns low.
We sit under red oak and tall white pine trees.

There at our campsite, under the moonlight,
by the fireside we have all we need

We hike down creek.
We follow the rocky stream to Cairo.
We hold on to the feeling of almost feeling free.
But we need to go back to the city.
So long to the feeling until we retreat
back to Catskill Creek.
