ARKANSAS RAIN
Brick Fields, Fields Of Sound Publishing, ASCAP, Independent


It sure don’t rain too much in California
Sometimes it seems as though the deserts never end
Though the ocean aint’ too far away, if I go there I could listen to the waves roll in all day
But sometimes I miss the time we’d spend

Watching the storms rolling in
Rocking chairs rocking with the wind
Sometimes the seasons they ain’t the only things to change
The way Arkansas rains

I saw it rain one time in California
What a long-awaited sight for my dry eyes to see
But it didn’t stay around too long before I knew it the storm had come then gone
Still it made me so long to be

Watching the storms rolling in
Rocking chairs rocking with the wind
Sometimes the seasons they ain’t the only things to change
The way Arkansas rains

Sometimes I close my eyes I see the dark clouds rolling over the horizon
when the lightening strikes, how it paints silver phantoms in the sky
the thunder rolls and the rain begins to fall
makes you feel like it’s the first time sweet heaven’s cried

Watching the storms rolling in
Rocking chairs rocking with the wind
Sometimes the seasons they ain’t the only things to change
The way Arkansas rains
