Now play the intro again strum more notes of each chord.
This is how you play it during the rest of the song.

Verse 1: (C*= Play C like in the intro with bass run)

Dm C*
We went out on the road today
Dm C*
And the sky was full of tears
Dm C*
And each small town looked so blue to me
Dm C*
And seemed to ache for better years

[Dm]Then my cell phone started ring[Am]ing wild
Dm C*
Like a fire alarm from hell
[Dm]And When I picked it up a sad voice s[Am]aid
Dm C*
It’s time to ring that golden bell

And I was tal[Bb]kin’ to the Bu[Am]ddha
Dm C*
And I made the Buddha cry
And I was tal[Bb]kin’ to the Bu[Am]ddha
[Dm]And I realized that [C]I-
I’ve been causing all this [Em]rain

Play intro

Dm C*
He said meet me at Joe’s Diner
Dm C*
Where route 6 meets 88
Dm C*
Well I arrived at the appointed time
Dm C*
But the Buddha said you’re running late

[Dm]So we both ordered an es[Am]presso
Dm C*
From the owner’s new machine
[Dm]And as the jukebox played Ni[Am]rvana
Dm C*
The Buddha said ignorance is mean

Play Chorus
Play Intro

Play Solo over intro chords

[Dm]The Buddha said the twelve gates wait for y[C]ou
[Dm]And creation’s in trav[C]ail
[Dm]Waiting for us all to see the l[C]ight
[Dm]And restore what we have fai[C]led

[Dm]The Waitress said you want a r[Am]efill
[Dm]The Buddha said there’s no t[C]ime
[Dm]There’s three seconds left to [Am]zero
[Dm]And then that white light stole my m[C]ind
Play Chorus

Play a crazy sweet solo over the Intro chords(during Am say “help me stop the rain”)

End on Dm after playing Am
