Heavy Rain

 

Sometimes I feel like a wore out boot

On my last leg kneelin' at the river

Water's risin' above my soul

But I get stuck in the mud with not a nickle

 

            And I'm just like you

            Tryin' to get through

            Some heavy rain

            Some heavy rain

 

Sometimes I look like a dirty ol' sock

That ain't matchin' up like a book and a cover

Dog-eared pages lost and faded

Wearin' thin reachin' for another

 

(Chorus)

 

                        Heavy rain's fallin' fallin' all around

                        Steady as she goes oh darlin'

                        Some heavy rain

 

Tooth and nail jawbone hammer

Buildin' 'dem roads up to hereafter

Twistin' turnin' still yearnin'

You've been d'ere spittin' out gravel

 

(Chorus)

 

Hold on to me and I'll hold you

Don't turn me loose we gonna get through

Some heavy rain

 

(Repeat Bridge)

(Repeat Chorus)

 

Don't turn me loose, we gonna get through

Don't turn me loose, we gonna get through

Some heavy rain

Some heavy rain
