Lyrics

And The Rain Comes Down©
words and music Grant Maloy Smith

Fate turns like an old oak wheel It turned me around Warm boots and a brand new deal Look at me nowI've been know to sit and watch the starlight turn to dawn And I've been known to listen to the crickets carrying onAll the ways a man can fail Well, I'm sure I tried them all All the times you told me that you loved me anyway All our disappointments Well, they washed away today...I raise my arms and the rain comes downI close my eyesand it heals me I lift my heart and the rain comes downComes down on meTime burns like a Coleman lamp Until we are through Each boy loses his old man It's simple but true I've been known to take a good idea out too farand I've been known to end up like the dog who caught the car All the ways a man can fail I sure did try them all All the times you told me that you loved me anyway All our disappointments
Well, they washed away today...I raise my arms and the rain comes downI close my eyesand it heals me I lift my heart and the rain comes downComes down on me
