                    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 G Memphis, Texas; Houston, Tennesee D Man I'm just so turned around I don't know where I want to be G 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 G Everybody knows me as the kid D I've made it seven years still I don't know how I did G 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 D I'll leave this mean old desert bound for Memphis on that train G D Oh I wish it would rain (X2) | / slide up | \ slide down | h hammer-on | p pull-off | ~ vibrato | + harmonic | x Mute note ===============================================================================D
