E         D       G     F#m
What good is that happy lie
E       D               G  D         E
All you wanted from the start was to cry girl
Bm            E       A
It looks like another fall
Bm             E                     A
Your  friends  don't seem to help at all
Bm          E               A
When you're feeling kind of cold and small
Bm              E          A
Call on    your rainy day man
Bm             E        A
It does you no good to pretend girl
Bm            E                           A
You've made a hole that's much too big to mend
Bm                E                  A
And it looks like you lose again, my friend
Bm               E        A           
So call on your rainy day man
F#m           E      Dmaj7      C#7
Now rainy day man he don't like sunshine
F#m            E
He don't chase rainbows
Dmaj7         C#7
He don't need good times
F#m       E
Grey days rolling
Dmaj7       C#7
Then you'll see him
Bm    F#m
Empty feeling
Bm       E
Now you need him
Bm        E               A
All those noble thoughts  don't belong
Bm        E                     A
You can't hide the truth with a happy song
Bm            E                    A
And  you knew where you stood all along
Bm           E         A 
Call on your rainy day man
F#m        E         Dmaj7          C#7
Now simple pleasures they all evade you
F#m          E         Dmaj7     C#7
Store-bought treasures none can save you
F#m     E        Dmaj7    C#7      
Ask for signs to ease the pain
Bm  F#m
Ask again
          Bm       E
Go on and pray for rain
Bm            E       A
It looks like another fall
Bm             E                     A
Your  friends  don't seem to help at all
Bm          E               A
When you're feeling kind of cold and small
Bm              E          A
Call on    your rainy day man
