Guitar Tabs, Chords and Lyrics

Make it Rain  Tom Waits

She took all my m[Am]oney
And my best friend
You know the st[Dm]ory
Here it comes ag[Am]ain
I have no pr[E]ide
I have no sh[Dm]ame
You gotta make it r[Am]ain
Make it r[Am]ain!

S[Am]ince you're gone
Deep inside it hurts
I'm just a[Dm]nother sad guest
On t[Am]his dark earth
I w[E]ant to believe
In the m[Dm]ercy of the world again
Make it r[Am]ain, make it rain!

The n[Dm]ite's too quiet
St[Am]retched out alone
I n[Dm]eed the whip of thunder
And the w[Am]ind's dark moan
I[Dm]'m not Able, I[Am]'m just Cain
O[B7]pen up the heavens
M[E]ake it rain!

I'm close to h[Am]eaven
Crushed at the gate
They sharpen their k[Dm]nives
On my mist[Am]akes
Wh[E]at she done, you can't [Dm]give it a name
You gotta m[Am]ake it rain
Make it rain, yeah!

W[Dm]ithout her love
W[Am]ithout your kiss
H[Dm]ell can't burn me
M[Am]ore than this
I[Dm]'m burning with all this pain
P[B7]ut out the fire
M[E]ake it rain!

I'm born to trouble
I'm born to fate
Inside a promise
I can't escape
It's the same old world
But nothing looks the same
Make it rain! (2x)

[E]Got to make it [Am]rain
Make it rain
You got to make it rain
Got to make it rain
You got to...
I stand alone here! (2x)
Sing it...
Make it rain! (2x)
