Never Seen the Rain © 2014
Grant Maloy Smith

I͛ve seen kings who were not free I͛ve seen lovers gazing up at me I͛ve seen tracks without a train But I͛ve never seen the rain I͛ve seen men with desperate hearts I͛ve seen comets dance among the stars I͛ve known slaves who broke their chains But I͛ve never seen the rain We worked the land to death Me, and my brother ͚til April Fourteen, Nineteen Thirty-five Oklahoma, you were like our mother Oh, my... Never seen the rain I͛ve been hugged and I͛ve been kissed Been knocked down by an angry fist I͛ve seen blizzards sweep the plain But I͛ve never seen the rain Trials like this are bound to pass Plow up all that prairie grass Tell it on the weather vane ͚Cause I͛ve never seen the rain We worked the land to death Me, and my brother ͚til April Fourteen, Nineteen Thirty-five Oklahoma, you were like our mother Oh, my... Never seen the rain
Cows and pigs and bathtub gin Come Bakersfield we͛ll start again Boxcar blues and guitars play But I͛ve never seen the rain We worked the land to death Me, and my brother ͚til April Fourteen, Nineteen Thirty-five Oklahoma, you were like our mother Oh, my... Never seen the rain
