DD SINGALONG: LET IT RAIN Lyrics and Video

Sing along with David and the Band. Pick up a guitar, or sit at your piano and play along. Lyrics and Chords below. Let me now if you think we have any words or chords wrong. A few A minor seven chords could be C major 6 chords.  I alternate these according to my mood of the day. Same notes with different voicings – change base note etc – create slightly altered effects).

em                                             G
Like the earth that splits and moans
C                                            am
A woman by her faults is known
em                                 G
I don’t see cracks and sin
C                                     A
Only see how the light gets in

C               D                    G               em
The grey sky it threatens rain above
C               D                    G               em
As our love it threatens pain, my love
C               D                    G               em
You can’t hurt the one you already left behind
C (maj 7)       D                            G                Eb
Walk it back, baby, take another breath, rewind
em     bm         g     a7 (C6)
And let it rain, let it rain

G                                          bm
There is nothing you could do
G                                           am
To make me turn my back on you
G                                          bm
There is nothing you could say
G                                           am
I’ve imagined worse anyway
G                                          bm
The waves break on the shore
G                                           am
The shore it only waits for more

em                                             G
Like the earth that splits and moans
C                                            am
A woman by her faults is known
em                                 G
I don’t see cracks and sin
C                                     A
Only see how the light gets in

C               D                    G               em
The grey sky it threatens rain above
C               D                    G               em
As our love it threatens pain, my love
C               D                    G               em
You can’t hurt the one you already left behind
C (maj 7)       D                            G                Eb
Walk it back, baby, take another breath, rewind
em     bm         g     a7 (C6)
And let it rain, let it rain
