John Prine recorded this song on his Sweet Revenge album. The first time I heard this song, was Rita MacNeill singing it on her show. She did a great job. Anyway, this is my interpretation of this song.
The Blue Umbrella.
c f c Well feelings are strange, especially when they come true, g c And I had a feeling that you'd be leaving soon, f c So I tried to rearrange all my emotions, g c But they seemed the same no matter what I'd do.
chorus: c c c The blue umbrella rests upon my shoulder,
g c It hides the pain, while the rain makes up my mind, f c well my feet are wet, from thinking this thing over, f g And it's been so long since I've felt the warm sunshine, f c Just give me, one good reason, f g c And I promise I won't ask you anymore, f c Just give me, one extra season, g c So I can figure out the other four,
c f c Day time makes me wonder why you left me, g c Night time makes me wonder what I said, f c The next time, are the words I'd like to plan on, g c The last time, was the only thing you said,
This is my first attempt at submitting any material and I hope you enjoy this song as much as I do. Keith Agnew
