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,

Chorus.
