Carry On
Oh the rain did come down
And the wind began to howl
And the water come over the levee
Oh where are we gonna go now?

In 2005, when Austin wrote this opening verse, top of his mind was the endurance in the face of suffering shown by the residents of New Orleans following the devastation of Hurricane Katrina.  But once you listen to this beautiful duet by Austin and his girlfriend Christine Reilly, recorded in 2007, you’ll hear a paean to the indomitable human spirit that flourishes everywhere:

Carry on, carry on, oh we’re gonna carry on!

“Carry On”
