Billy Joel wrote a song or two while spending a summer in Highland Falls

“Another Summer, Highland Falls”
SING to the tune of Billy Joel’s “Summer, Highland Falls”
They say that this is Highland Falls but it was "Buttermilk" in times that I've not known.
From scenic Mountain Bear to King of Storm, the history of our land in lore has grown.
Our story has no end but is where our beginning lies; within our family tales so we must realize.
Wherever we may go or be, when we return there'll be no sadness....just euphoria.
...with Kevin's apologies to the pen of Billy Joel...
“Summer, Highland Falls” is the second song on the Turnstiles album, his third album on Columbia Records, which was written in Highland Falls, New York, during the summer of 1975. Hence the title, which reads like an underlined statement in a diarist notebook, a comma separating that time and place--summer, Highland Falls. The historic Village of Highland Falls lies 50 miles north of New York City, and became Billy’s way station in his move back to New York from LA. Crisscrossing the Hudson River during his intrepid Street Life Tour, Billy was inspired by the sheer beauty of upstate New York, and found a small house to rent in Highland Falls at the end of the tour. He moved to New York City in the winter of '76 and began recording the material that would become the Turnstiles album.

The "Hit Counter" above...went over 1 Million in February of 2011 after only 1 year. It only shows six figures. I'm not sure how high it is right now. Should easily be more than 4 million.
