Rain rain, why’d you go away?
I need you more than yesterday.
You left me here with skies so blue,
But I’m withering without you.

Rain rain, I’ve been missing you,
The memories of kissing you,
My dirty face held toward the sky,
You satisfied my lips so dry.
Rain rain, won’t you come around
And meet me on this dusty ground?
I’m thirsty and I’m missing you,
So bring me just a drop or two.

I met you first when I was young
And growing tender toward the sun.
In afternoons you came and played;
We danced around in thunder-shade.
It always hurt to see you go,
But I waited for the wind to blow,
‘Cause I knew you’d be on his tail;
You always were, you never fail.

Can’t help but think how it would be
If you had never come to me
I’d not have grown up half as tall,
I’m bigger now but I’ll harder fall.
I grew up thick and I grew up high,
I didn’t even have to try.
Now I’m standing on these brittle bones;
You left me drying out alone.

Now I’m out of breath my leaves are brown,
The wind it makes a different sound.
But if you don’t ride it back this way,
Come again another day.
