LYRIC

Don't Let It Rain On Me

Don’t let it rain on me, oh, Lord,
Don’t let it rain on me.
Let it pour, let it pour,
On everybody, Lord, but
Don’t let it rain on,
Don’t let it rain on,
Don’t let it rain on me.

Woke up this morning with the drummin’ of the rain upon my unwashed window.
Here comes another dreary day but I just close my eyes and there it goes.
And somewhere in between my morning coffee and my dreams, I lay there prayin,’
Oh, Lord, I can’t afford one penny more of these old dues I’m payin.’

Don’t let it rain on me, oh, Lord,
Don’t let it rain on me.
Let it pour, let it pour,
On everybody, Lord, but
Don’t let it rain on,
Don’t let it rain on,
Don’t let it rain on me.

Gotta get my lights turned back on and my rent is slightly overdue.
Gotta get my act together but it’s all that I can do to tie my shoe.
Hope that there’s enough gas in the van to get me somewhere I don’t want to go.
Hope that there’s another song left somewhere deep inside of me but I don’t know.

Don’t let it rain on me, oh, Lord,
Don’t let it rain on me.
Let it pour, let it pour,
On everybody, Lord.
Let it rain, let it pour
On the guy next door.
Let it rain, let it pour,
Till there ain’t no more, but
Don’t let it rain on,
Don’t let it rain on,
Don’t let it rain on me.
