Southern Rain  Cowboy Junkies



[1991] **************************************
The flies have quit their buzzing
[A] Even Bear has stopped his barking
[D] They all sense something brewing
[E] Up the James and headed this way
D A Asus2: lick
Bobby sips his morning coffee
Says have you finished with the funnies
Looks like a storm is brewing honey
guess we'll have to stay in bed today
I've heard that into every life
[D] A little of it must fall
[A] [D] So she spends her evenings praying
[E] For a little of that southern rain
Marie was born in Macon [D]Georgia[A] [Asus2]
She met a west coast lawyer
He plucked that sweet magnolia
and carried her to the hills of West LA
She says I never thought I'd tire of a dollar
But this life has grown so hollow
Every nite there's lipstick on his collar
And every morning I wash it away
She heard that into every life......etc
<Now the tricky part...Btw i think i cocked up the first phrase
of this verse, but ......>
Cars alive on city streets, of sparkling black water
[Gm] [F#m] [E] [A]like waves beneath my window never break just roll away
[F#m] [Bm] [E]Tonite this rain will be my lullabye
[D] [E] [F#m] [Bm] These cars, my dreams to carry me home to stay
[D] [Bm] [E] [A] [Asus2]<Whew!>
The wipers beat a rhythm truck spray obscures my vision
But I'm closing in on my destination
Two more hours and I'll be at your door
And it will never cease to amaze me
How a little rain can drive folks crazy
When I'd trade all my clear skies glady
For your blue eyes crooked smile
and a steady downpour
I've heard that into every life
A little of it must fall
but you'll never catch me complaining
about too much of that southern rain
 Asus lick: -------0-h-2--0-------b

or something like that...
