It's been raining all night on a cold tin roof

Spent all of my day just a-thinkin' about you

Wondering how it all got lost again

Like it always used to do


Rain, rain wash me away to the sweet winding river below

Won't you ease my troubled mind and cleanse my weary soul


I'll light another cigarette and siing myself

Back into the sleep from which I woke

And I'll dream about so many things you'll never see

So many things you'll never get told


I'm singing this song for our brothers and sisters in arms

Our lovers who are so damn far away

I'll keep that fire burning, yes that candle strong

So we can all be together again one day...
