Piano intro for guitar

     Ebmsus4                           Ebmsus4/Db
Only love can make it rain the way the beach is kissed by the sea

     Ebmsus4                                    Ebmsus4/Db
Only love can make it rain like the sweat of lovers laying in the fields

    Ebm7                          Bmaj7     Abm7
    Love,             reign o'er  me

Ebm7             Bmaj7         Abm7        Ebm/Bb       Bbsus4  Bb  Bb7 
Love, reign o'er me    Rain on me, rain on me

Only love can bring the rain that makes you yearn to the sky
Only love can bring the rain that falls like tears from on high

[repeat chorus]

F#     F#sus4/Ab
On the dry and dusty road
F#            F#sus4/Ab
The nights we spent apart alone
F#        F#sus4/Ab      
I need to get back home
   Eb         Ab/Eb       Bb/Eb     Ab/Eb
To cool, cool rain

I can't sleep and I lay and I think, the night is hot and black as ink
Oh, god, I need a drink of cool, cool rain

[repeat chorus]

Bb  | Bb7 Bbsus4 | Bb | Bb7           | Ebm
