Big Rains


Good lord. I wrote a song. I knew buying a guitar was a dangerous idea.

Emaj
Wind in the leaves
Amaj
A few left on the trees
Dmaj Amaj Emaj
Waiting on the Big Rains

Emaj
New stars past the clouds
Amaj
The Hunter and Hound
Dmaj Amaj Emaj
Watching for the Big Rains

Emaj
Coming home in the dark
Amaj
And it’s just five o’clock
Dmaj Amaj Emaj
No escaping the Big Rains

Emin Gmaj
Goodbye to morn
Emin Gmaj
Goodbye to noon
Emin Amin
Goodbye to eve
Bmaj
See you in June

Emaj
Still there’s part of my soul
Amaj
Gray, quiet, and cold
Dmaj Amaj Emaj
At home in the Big Rains
