Mandolin Rain

In the style of

Bruce Hornsby & the Range

Lyrics

the song
came and went
like the times
that we spent

hiding out
from the rain
under the
carnival tent

i laughed and
she'd smile
it would last
for a while
you don't know
what you got
till you lose it all
again

listen to the
mandolin rain
listen to the
music on the lake
oh listen to
my heart break
every time
she runs away

woh listen to
the banjo wind
a sad song
driftin' low
listen to the
tears roll
down my face as
she turns to go

a cool evening dance
listenin' to the
bluegrass band
takes the chill
from the air
until they play
the last song

i'll do my time
oh keepin' you
off my mind
but there's moments
that i find
i'm not feelin'
so strong

listen to the
mandolin rain
listen to the
music on the lake
ah listen to
my heart break
every time
she runs away

woh listen to
the banjo wind
a sad song
driftin' low
listen to the
tears roll
down my face as
she turns to go

runnin' down by
the lakeshore
she did love
the sound of
a summer storm

it played on the lake
like a mandolin
now it's washin' her
away once again
woh again

ooh woh woh oh
yeah eh eh heh eh eh
hoo ooh ooh
washin' away
ooh hoo ooh ooh
ooh ooh ooh

boat's steamin' in
woh i watch
the side-wheel spin
and i think
about her when
i hear that
whistle blow

i can't change my mind
woh i knew
all the time that
she'd go
but that's a choice
i made long ago

listen to the
mandolin rain
listen to the
music on the lake
ah listen to
my heart break
every time
she runs away

woh listen to
the banjo wind
a sad song
driftin' low

listen to the
tears roll
down my face as
she turns to go
as she turns to go

listen to
listen to the
mandolin rain
doo doo woh bomp
ba ah ah ho

listen to the
tears roll
down my face as
she turns to go

listen to the
tears roll
down my face as
she turns to go

wah ho ooh ho ooh
listen to the
mandolin rain
mm hmm
mm hah ah
hoo hoo
