Sounds Like Rain

Well he caught you sleeping on top of your horse
and he smacked you to the ground
he lost his ring when he hit your face
and then he burned the whole field down

ma was waiting for you , when you came home from school
and a rabid dog lay under the porch
she said I'll put the food out and when he goes to eat
pull the trigger on that 44

there's a place you go to escape
when you're drunk at the end of the day
there's a sound on the roof
calls out your name
and the sound, it sounds like rain
it sounds like rain

then Buella called, she said you better come home
and if you don't, well, he's liable to be dead
you went over, you jammed up the gun
behind the hammer you put your cigarette

there's a place you go to escape
when you're drunk at the end of the day
there's a sound on the roof
calls out your name
and the sound, it sounds like rain
it sounds like rain

then 9 days later your letter arrived
and they stole you away from your bride
you had no choice, you had no voice
every man was needed on the other side

there's a place you go to escape
when you're drunk at the end of the day
there's a sound on the roof
calls out your name
and the sound, it sounds like rain
it sounds like rain
it sounds like rain
