Here Comes The Rain

From True Stories
(Laurie Lewis/Spruce and Maple Music, ASCAP)

VERSE 1
               A                                             A
I’ve been waiting for so long, I’ve been listening for your song
                D                                                  D
I’ve been scanning the skies, searching for clouds on the horizon
                       A
And here they come
          D                              F#m          E
And I know you’re going to fall to the thirsty earth again
                          A
Here comes the rain

VERSE 2
The tired and dusty trees lift their crowns of withered leaves
They know what’s gong to come, and that soon the rain will be drumming
on the ground
They can feel it in the breeze––oh, it’s been a long time gone
And here it comes

REFRAIN
                          D                      A
Here comes the rain–––––––––––
                          D                      A
Here comes the rain–––––––––––

BRIDGE 1
          D                              A
Every day, nothin’ but blue skies
              D                           A        
Earth is cracked, fields are tinder-dry

VERSE 3
               A                                       A
It’s been silent as death, I’ve been holding my breath
       D                                        D                                                   
But now you’ve returned, only you can quench this
                       A
burning in my chest
              D                 F#m     E
I need a cold and icy touch, I just can’t get enough
                          A
Here comes the rain

BRIDGE 2
      D                       F#m                  Esus4     E
My heart’s about to burst like these clouds––––
               G   F#m  G                            Esus4  E
I’ve been so long thirsty, but it’s almost over now
      A                              A
The first few drops just raise the dust
       D                           D
The next few drops restore my trust
          F#m                                   E
Like a loving hand can ease the pain
          A
Here comes the rain

REFRAIN
                          D                      A
Here comes the rain–––––––––––
                          D                      A
Here comes the rain–––––––––––
