lyrics

MORNING RAIN
(Ballad of a Lonesome Drunk)

There are times in the life of a man
When things get very hard to understand
When love turns into sorrow and joy turns to pain
And all you got is the sweet morning rain

Morning rain come and take away my pain
Morning rain dripping down my window frame
Like my teardrops keep-a-fallin, like the kisses that I´m blowing
To your health, your happiness and grace

Like the knife cuts the butter on a tray
Like a lion drives its claws into a prey
Like a hammer on red iron, like a child´s hand on wet clay
Please rain on me and wash my blues away

Waitress come and sit with me tonight
Come and pour me some brown liquor into a dirty glass
Come and sing with me way downlow
Any old blues or a sad Hank Williams song

Morning comes and the wind makes me sway
As I´m walking and stumbling on the way
Ain´t no use in being mad, ain´t no gain on feeling low
So bring it on and let the good times roll

Waitress come and sit with me tonight
Come and pour me some brown liquor into a dirty glass
Come and sing with me way downlow
Any old blues or a sad Hank Williams song
