North Main Street
Kate Wolf, 1971

    Looking out my window
        what do I see
    That old sun comes shining
        through the cypress trees
    A big old ramblin' house
        built long ago for someone's wife
    In the heart of the city
        living a mellow country life

On the way to the Kate Wolf Memorial Music Festival, most of us will drive up Main Street through Sebastopol in Sonoma County.  The character has changed a lot since Kate lived there: streets are now one way, empty lots are full of tract houses, and the railroad tracks are gone.  However, you can still see the big old house that Kate wrote about in North Main Street.  The dark red Victorian sits above Main Street across from Safeway on the northern end just before 116 curves to the left.

This is one of the first songs that Kate composed, and will give you an idea of her work at the beginning of her songwriter career.  It's also one of the earliest recordings in our archive, and we apologize for the lower quality.  However, Kate's family feels that fans will find North Main Street of historical interest.

Here is Kate introducing North Main Street on KSRO in 1972..
