For a short clip of of a video of this:
This song made me a professional songwriter when George Sluizer, the director of THE VANISHING, put it in the movie by that name.
SWEET RAIN Key G
G Bass F# Em
It’s been a long dry spell
C Bass B Am
I haven’t done that well
Em D C
And when you reach a certain level
You just get by
I could draw you a map of hell.
Oh the stories I could tell
I watched a daughter of the devil
sit down and cry
For rain, rain, rain, SWEET RAIN
Rain, rain, rain, SWEET RAIN
Rain to wash the salt away
Rain to melt a cloudy day
The sun can ruin the land.
Turn your gardens into sand
Lap all the water from the river
until it runs dry
Oh, the ocean’s seen it all
It’s lived to see the forests crawl
Follow the clouds across the mountains
Now tell me why?
