Kathy’s song    (video)    (intro)    (midi)

 

   G                    C       G

1.    I hear the drizzle of the rain,

Am          Em   D

    like a memory it falls,

G                Bm     G      C

    soft and warm continuing, 

Am           Em        D           G

    tapping on my roof and walls.

 

    G                          C       G

2.     And from the shelter of my mind,

Am                   Em       D

    through the window of my eyes,

G                Bm           G                       C

    I gaze beyond the rain drenched streets

Am                      D            C    G

    to England where my heart lies.

 

   G                         C         G

3.    My mind's distracted and diffused,

Am                          Em      D

    my thoughts are many miles away,

G                     Bm             G           C

    they lie with you when you're asleep,

           Am           Em           D             G

    and kiss you when you start your day.

 

                G                C           G

4. And a song I was writing is left undone,

Am                   Em        D

    I don't know why I spent my time

G             Bm        G          C

    writing songs I can't believe

Am                        Em            D          G

    with words that tear and strain to rhyme.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

    G                      C       G

5.    And so, you see, I have come to doubt

Am         Em         D

    all that I once held as true,

G              Bm          G        C 

    I stand alone without beliefs,

Am            Em         D        G

    the only truth I know is you.

 

    G                  C              G

6.     And as I watch the drops of rain

Am                    Em     D

    weave their weary paths and die,

G                 BmG                C

    I know that I am like the rain,

Am              Em                     D       G

    there but for the grace of you go I.
