The Rain Came Down
Perf. Steve Earle (Steve Earle and the Dukes)
Albums: Angry Young Man, The Road And The Sky


The old man loaded up everything that he owned on a waggon and headed out west
There's no-one more fearless face that I know 'cos he figured he
                                                            knew what was best
And they settled down hard on a ???????? grand
There's six mouthes to feed and forty acres to plant

And the rain came down
Like an angel commin' down from above and the rain came down
It'll wash away, there ain't never enough

The fall turned to winter, another year gone, over and over again
Some took their lives from the land and moved on,
Some stayed on and ploughed it back in
And the good lord giveth and he taketh away
And the restless shall go and the faithful shall stay

And the rain came down
Like an angel commin' down from above, and the rain came down
It'll was away, there ain't never enough

(instrumental)

Well, my grand-daddy died ??? was born, twenty-three summers ago
Oh I could have sworn he's beside me this mornin'
The sherriff showed up at my door
So don't you come around here with your occu?????????
'Cos you can have the machine, but you ain't takin' my land.

And the rain came down
Like an angel commin' down from above, and the rain came down
It'll wash away, there ain't never enough.

(instrumental to fade)
