Subject: Name of Song or Artist.

I'd appreciate it if anyone can help me with either of the above for a song I heard in Iowa in 1993. I had just moved and this one really caught my mood at the time. It was folk-rock style, female vocalist, midwestern band, late 80's early 90's (I rang the radio station but lost the particulars). The lyric I recall was the chorus which went "Blue skies above, I look for signs of rain"

Any input gratefully received!

Archie
The lyrics you quote are a bit vague.. like might fit any of a thousand or so songs... do you have any more to go on?

Mick

Dear Mick,

Thanks for replying. Yes I know the lyrics I quoted are vague -one of my major problems with this. I have tried lyric serch engines and they either give 10,000 hits for say "blue skies" or nil for the whole phrase.

When I rang the radio station I do recall that the artist was from the mid-west (Wisconsin? Minnesota?) and had recorded in the last 5 to 10 years (in 1993). I am fairly certain that I have the phrase very close to exact -it may be "blue sky" or "skies"; "I search" or "look" maybe. The verse lyrics were essentially that things were going too well -there must be a catch.

I'm sorry! I could do better if this sort of search had been available nearer the time, but the memory is getting very old.

Thanks anyway,

Archie

Now really, folks. A country song where things are going well has got to be rare, if not unique. There must be a way to find it.

Is this it, Archie (Tom Waits)?
