If you saw any inaugural coverage this past week you may have seen Pete Seeger and Bruce Springsteen singing this old Woodie Guthrie favorite. This is Bruce singing this solo in 2006.
"It breaks your heart. It is designed to break your heart. The game begins in spring, when everything else begins again, and blossoms in the summer, filling the afternoons and evenings, and then as soon as the chill rains come, it stops and leaves you to face the fall alone. You count on it, rely on it to buffer the passage of time, to keep the memory of sunshine and high skies alive, and then, just when the days are all twilight, when you need it most, it stops."
- Bart Giamatti
