Now play the intro again strum more notes of each chord. This is how you play it during the rest of the song. Verse 1: (C*= Play C like in the intro with bass run) Dm C* We went out on the road today Dm C* And the sky was full of tears Dm C* And each small town looked so blue to me Dm C* And seemed to ache for better years Dm Am Then my cell phone started ringing wild Dm C* Like a fire alarm from hell Dm Am And When I picked it up a sad voice said Dm C* It’s time to ring that golden bell Chorus: Bb Am And I was talkin’ to the Buddha Dm C* And I made the Buddha cry Bb Am And I was talkin’ to the Buddha Dm C And I realized that I- Em I’ve been causing all this rain Play intro Dm C* He said meet me at Joe’s Diner Dm C* Where route 6 meets 88 Dm C* Well I arrived at the appointed time Dm C* But the Buddha said you’re running late Dm Am So we both ordered an espresso Dm C* From the owner’s new machine Dm Am And as the jukebox played Nirvana Dm C* The Buddha said ignorance is mean Play Chorus Play Intro Play Solo over intro chords Dm C The Buddha said the twelve gates wait for you Dm C And creation’s in travail Dm C Waiting for us all to see the light Dm C And restore what we have failed Dm Am The Waitress said you want a refill Dm C The Buddha said there’s no time Dm Am There’s three seconds left to zero Dm C And then that white light stole my mind Play Chorus Play a crazy sweet solo over the Intro chords(during Am say “help me stop the rain”) End on Dm after playing Am -Adam B.
