I Can't Stand the Rain - Ann Peebles - 1973

Composers: Bryant/Peebles/Miller

Submitted by Greg B.

NOTE:  I'm submitting this under the Commitments, however I only
have Ann Peebles' 1973 recording to work from. (she doesn't have
her own tab section).  The Commitment's version is pretty true to
the original.  After all the whole premise of the fairy tale group
was to mimic the original soul masters.


Intro:  almost a reggae-like strumming pattern on F# @ 2nd position. do for first lyric line
