Couple Inches Rain

It never fails, we always get what we wish for, never when we want it and always more or less than what we need. But I'm still thankful! Cheers

 

Through those years of dust & pain, the wind would whistle 'cross the plains.

And the clouds would scurry low across the sky.

But they never dropped their load on us dry folks below

And the sun would burn; we'd have to shade our eyes.


It was early in the spring the flood gates opened once again

And the heavens poured their healing on the land.

By summer we all knew, that the drought was good and through.

As we sailed across our fields of drowned plans.


Chorus

And I only needed one drop of water,

only wanted couple inches rain.

But I often wonder why, when my prayers were answered,

why did he have to flood the whole damn plains.

 

Now I've got swamp-rats living in the basement;

I got black beasts a growing in the walls.

Two by two those little crawly things are coming

And this ark will be a floating come the fall.

Chorus:

 

Now I don't want to tell the Good Lord his business

and I don't want to be a seeming to complain,

But the next time I fall down, upon my knees to pray.

He won't turn all my tear drops into rain!

 

Chorus:

And I only needed one drop of water,

only wanted couple inches rain.

But I often wonder why, when my prayers were answered,

why did he have to flood the whole damn plains.

 

why did he have to flood, ... the whole bles-sed plains.
