The Rain Came Down
by Steve Earle

tabbed by Matellmon

G   320033
C   X32010
D   XX0232
Em  022000


G
THE OLD MAN LOADED UP EVERYTHING THAT HE OWNED
   C                    D
IN WAGON AND HEADED OUT WEST
G   
THE OLD WOMAN FEARLESS TO FACE THE UNKNOWN 
      C                            D     
CAUSE SHE FIGURED HE KNEW WHAT WAS BEST

C                               G
AND THEY SETTLED DOWN HARD ON A GOVERNMENT GRANT
     C                       D
WITH 6 MOUTHS TO FEED AND 40 ACRES TO PLANT

D                 Em      G
AND THE RAIN CAME DOWN
C                            G
LIKE AN ANGEL SENT DOWN FROM ABOVE
D                  Em      G
AND THE RAIN CAME DOWN
C                                     D
WELL ONCE IT STARTS THERE AIN'T NEVER ENOUGH

G                
FALL TURNED TO WINTER AND ANOTHER YEAR GONE
C             D
OVER AND OVER AGAIN
G   
SOME TOOK THEIR LIVES FROM THE LAND AND MOVED ON
     C                         D
SOME STAYED ON TO PLOW IT BACK IN

C                               G
AND THE GOOD LORD GIVITH AND HE TAKETH AWAY
        C                         D  
AND THE RESTLESS SHALL GO AND THE FAITHFUL SHALL STAY


D                 Em      G
AND THE RAIN CAME DOWN
C                            G
LIKE AN ANGEL SENT DOWN FROM ABOVE
D                  Em      G
AND THE RAIN CAME DOWN
C                                     D
WELL ONCE IT STARTS THERE AIN'T NEVER ENOUGH

D
WELL MY GRANDFATHER DIED IN THE ROOM HE WAS BORN IN
C                    G
TWENTY THREE SUMMERS AGO
D                             C
BUT I COULD HAVE SWORN HE WAS BESIDE ME THIS MORNING
                                 G
WHEN THE SHERIFF SHOWED UP AT MY DOOR

C                                       G
SO DON'T YOU COME AROUND HERE WITH YOUR AUCTIONEEER MAN
              C                              D
CAUSE YOU CAN HAVE THE MACHINES BUT YOU AINT TAKEN MY LAND


D                 Em      G
AND THE RAIN CAME DOWN
C                            G
LIKE AN ANGEL SENT DOWN FROM ABOVE
D                  Em      G
AND THE RAIN CAME DOWN
C                                     D
WELL ONCE IT STARTS THERE AIN'T NEVER ENOUGH

Does anyone know the notes for the guitar riff/solo in the middle? I would greatly appreciate finding out.

Thanks, Steve. (stephen.andrews@sympatico.ca)
