I WISH IT WOULD RAIN

VERSE
I gaze into an August wind
Blazing sun burns through my skin
And the crops crumble from my hands
Bankers coming for our land

VERSE
Daddy doesn’t want to leave
Says this farm was meant for me
But this dry and dusty earth
Ain’t yielding what it’s worth

CHORUS
I wish it would rain
Flood this terrain
Let it pour for days and days
Wish it would drown
This troubled ground
Fill a river fit
To carry me away
Hey-eh eh
Let it rain

VERSE
Up at 4 bone tired by 8
But I want more than this small town fate
Sleepless with this growing guilt
How can I leave all that Daddy’s built

VERSE
Mama says she understands
I can’t be tied down to this land
My dreams are signed and sealed
Far beyond these fields

REPEAT CHORUS

BRIDGE
Daddy, I wish that you could see
This is something we both need
‘Cause we are desperate for a change
But our dreams are not the same

REPEAT CHORUS
