                    I WISH IT WOULD RAIN - Rodney Crowell
Tabbed by: dave

Tuning: Standard (EADGBe)

This is from "The Houston Kid." It is a brilliant song from a brilliant record that
Rodney wrote about his childhood and the childhoods of his best friends growing up.
It is amazing.


Song Chords:
D                         F#m
Turning tricks on sunset, twenty bucks a pop
     Bm                                 G
Some out of town old business man or an undercover cop
D                               Bm
I'm living with a virus flowing way down in my veins
G                     D
Oh I wish it would rain

D                               F#m
I know you've heard my story or seen me on the street
Bm                                  G
Just another cracker gigolo dressed up like trick or treat
D                               Bm
Now you may want to judge me or treat me with disdain
G                  D
Oh I wish it would rain

Memphis, Texas; Houston, Tennesee
Man I'm just so turned around I don't know where I want to be
This California desert is driving me insane
D                  G
Oh I wish it would rain

D                                        F#m
So I've squandered my resistance, taking any kind of drug
    Bm                            G
I'd smoke or shoot or eat it, I'd drink it from a jug
D                           Bm
I offer no excuses for your sympathies to gain
G                  D
Oh I wish it would rain

Everybody knows me as the kid
I've made it seven years still I don't know how I did
I come from a long line of live and love in vain
D                  G
Oh I wish it would rain

D                                   F#m
So I've prayed to mother Mary, I've even seen a priest
         Bm                       G            
When the angels come to get me, I know I'll be released
I'll leave this mean old desert bound for Memphis on that train
G                  D
Oh I wish it would rain (X2)
