Someday the rains will fall    (video)

 

Em                                          G

Someday the rains will fall when you expect it least,

Am                                   Em

    someday the rains will fall.

Em                                         G

Someday the rains will fall when you expect it least,

Am                                   Em

    someday the rains will fall.

 

                  C                                              Em

1. When I first come down here from the country,

C                                    Em

    came to a fork in the road,

C                         Em

    one way went nowhere,

                   D                                   Em

    and the other, it carried a heavy load.

 

+  CHORUS

 

              C                                                          Em

2. Your eyes and mind are always looking for trouble,

C                                          Em

    what if it permeates the brain ?

C                         Em

    Try to take a shortcut home,

                    D                                                 Em

    and you end up back where you started again.

 

+  CHORUS

 

       C                                                             Em

3. Hurry down the alley with another man's woman,

             C                                                            Em

    you don't care nothing about the ring on her hand.

C                                          Em

    You think surely you can get away,

             D                                 Em

    and sometimes maybe you can.

 

+  CHORUS

 

                C                                   Em

4. You're all just a bunch of lousy liars,

C                                           Em

    never seen a hypocrite before.

C                                                          Em

    Then you would love to judge each other,

            D                                       Em

    but hypocrites we are forever more.

 

Em                                          G

Someday the rains will fall when you expect it least,

Am                                   Em

    someday the rains will fall.

Em                                          G

Someday the rains will fall when you expect it least,

Am                                   Em

    someday the rains will fall.

 

   C                                  Em

5.    So we jiggle up the horse race,

C                                       Em

    oh, man, that desire to win

C                                   Em

    keeps our bellies so hungry,

                 D                                    Em

    and we all want to repent in the end.

 

+  CHORUS
