Waiting On the Rain

06:01

Lyrics

I've travelled most of this country

Through cities and towns

And everywhere I've found

People putting other people down 

 

When I packed up my guitar

And headed south down for Austin

I didn't know just where I was going

Or how long I'd be gone

 

But something hit me that day

I knew I was right where I belonged

When I heard that radio playing

One of your favorite songs

 

It takes a certain kind of lover

It takes a certain kind of friend

To always be there for each other

To have a helping hand to lend

 

They're gonna keep on changing

The rules of the game

And I'm tired of just sitting here

Waiting on the rain

 

I kept mostly to myself

And studied my trade

I tried to make some sense of 

The bad choices I've made

 

From street corners to the big show

They try to take it all away

But don't pretend to be what you ain't

And understand what I say

 

They're gonna keep on changing

The rules of the game

Now I'm just sitting here singing

Waiting on the rain

 

If you take to drinking

You better steady your aim

Be careful of what you do

And don't shit on your name

 

If you're feeling like leaving

Go on and walk out the door

Just remember if you slip

And you come back for more

 

That a whole lot of lovin'

Is just a big waste of time

If I can't be in your dreams

And you can't live with mine

 

They're gonna keep on changing

The rules of the game

But I'll just keep on singing

Waiting on the rain

 

Yeah, I'll just be here singing

Waiting on the rain
