Eighteen Inches of Rain  Ian Tyson

Eighteen Inches of Rain Ian Tyson
Intro: C Am Dm G C
[C]A’not a broke horse on the place,
[F]My pickup truck won’t [Dm]go,
[C]The tractor lost a wheel [Dm]about a week [G]ago,
[C]The wind is from the east,
[C]Blowing [F]hard across the [Dm]plains,
[C]I’m high and [Am]lonesome [Dm]waiting [G]for a [C]change.
[C]Just give me one br[F]oke horse with a good fittin’ saddle,
[C]That’s easy on your back,
[F]One good woman who makes up the difference,
[C]For everything I lack,
[Am]One last chance to [G]sell my calves,
[C]Before the prices go to hell a[F]gain,
[C]Clear blue s[Am]kies…[Dm]eighteen [G]inches of [C]rain.
[C]The coffee’s kinda bitter,
is the [F]water or the [Dm]pot?
C Until I get to town,
I’ll make [Dm]do with what I [G]got,
[C]The Copenhagen's runnin' low
I should [F]quit it anywa[Dm]y’s,
[C]Me and this old o[Am]utfit,
Have [Dm]both seen [G]better [C]days.
(Repeat Chorus Twice)
[C]Just give me clear blue [Am]skies,
[Dm]eighteen [G]inches of [C]rain.
[C]Just give me clear blue [Am]skies,
[Dm]eighteen [G]inches of [C]rain.
