I Wish It Would Rain by Rodney Crowell
(Rodney Crowell)

Turning tricks on Sunset 
Twenty bucks a pop
Some out of town old businessman 
Or an undercover cop
D 	  	  	 Bm
I'm living with the virus flowing way down in my veins
G 	  	  	 D
Oh, I wish it would rain

Know you've heard my story
Or seen me on the street
Just another cracker gigolo
Dressed up like trick or treat 
Now you may want to judge me
Or treat me with disdain  
Oh, I wish it would rain

Memphis, Texas, Houston, Tennessee
Man I'm just so turned around     

Donít know where I want to be 
This California desert is driving me Insane      
Oh, I wish it would rain

So I've squandered my resistance    
Taking any kind of drug 
I'd smoke or shoot or eat it 
I'd drink it from a jug 
And I offer no excuses for your sympathies to gain 
Oh, I wish it would rain   

Everybody knows me as the kid 
I've made it seven years and still donít know how I did
Iíve come from a long line of live and love In vain      
Oh, I wish it would rain   

I've prayed to Mother Mary
I've even seen a priest       
So when the angels come to get me  
I know I'll be released 
I'll leave this mean ol' desert bound for Memphis on a train 
Oh, I wish it would rain
