Fire and Rain” is a folk/rock song written and performed by James Taylor. As a song on his second album, Sweet Baby James, the song engendered widespread attention for him. The album was released in February 1970, with the song being released as a single that month. “Fire and Rain” quickly rose to number three on the Billboard hot 100 charts.
Many artists have recorded cover versions of “Fire and Rain”. My favorite version’s from Bobby Darin on his album Live! At the Desert Inn.
