Email: Atwbthe3rd@yahoo.com

Tuning: D G C F A D  (So Em=Dm, D=C, C=Bb, and Bm=Am)

   D5(Dm)                      C
   Dm                           Am

Now play the intro again strum more notes of each chord. 
This is how you play it during the rest of the song.

Verse 1: (C*= Play C like in the intro with bass run)

Dm                        C* 
We went out on the road today
Dm                        C*
And the sky was full of tears
Dm                             C*
And each small town looked so blue to me
               Dm               C*
And seemed to ache for better years

Dm                             Am
Then my cell phone started ringing wild
Dm                      C*
Like a fire alarm from hell
Dm                                   Am
And When I picked it up a sad voice said 
Dm                             C*
It?s time to ring that golden bell

             Bb            Am
And I was talkin? to the Buddha
Dm                     C*
And I made the Buddha cry
             Bb            Am
And I was talkin? to the Buddha
Dm                  C
And I realized that I-
I?ve been causing all this rain

Play intro

Dm                        C*
He said meet me at Joe?s Diner
Dm                   C*
Where route 6 meets 88
Dm                               C*
Well I arrived at the appointed time
Dm                                  C*
But the Buddha said you?re running late

Dm                      Am 
So we both ordered an espresso
Dm                      C*
From the owner?s new machine
Dm                          Am
And as the jukebox played Nirvana
Dm                            C*
The Buddha said ignorance is mean

Play Chorus

Play Intro 

Play Solo over intro chords

Dm                                         C
The Buddha said the twelve gates wait for you
Dm                    C
And creation?s in travail
Dm                             C
Waiting for us all to see the light
Dm                          C
And restore what we have failed

Dm                            Am
The Waitress said you want a refill
Dm                          C
The Buddha said there?s no time
Dm                            Am
There?s three seconds left to zero
Dm                                  C
And then that white light stole my mind

Play Chorus

Play a crazy sweet solo over the Intro chords(during Am say ?help me stop the rain?)

End on Dm after playing Am
