lyrics

WE HAVE GATHERED HERE
TO WATCH THE RAIN CLOUDS
CROSS THE RIVER
SOON WE ALL SHALL
BE DELIVERED
FROM THESE MONTHS OF DROUGHT

ONCE UPON A TIME
WE MADE OUR FORTUNE
FROM THE SOIL
MORE THAN GOLD
AND MORE THAN OIL
IT’S WHAT WE WERE ABOUT

IF WE’RE GONNA LIVE
WE NEED TO GIVE ALL WE CAN GIVE
SO PRAY FOR RAIN
WE JUST WANT THE CHANCE
TO GROW OUR KIDS AND GROW OUR PLANTS
SO PRAY FOR RAIN
HERE IT COMES
HERE IT COMES
HERE IT COMES

I BEEN WATCHING ALL
MY COTTON TURN TO
DUST AND CRUMBLE
NOW I STAND HERE
STRAIGHT AND HUMBLE
JUST BEGGING FOR RELIEF

MY THREE HORSES DIED
MY FIELDS ARE BROWN
AND BARE IN PATCHES
DRIER THAN A BOX
OF MATCHES
FAR BEYOND BELIEF

WHY HAVE WE BEEN CURSED
TO WATCH OUR PEOPLE DIE OF THIRST
JUST PRAY FOR RAIN
THIS USED TO BE THE INDIANS’ LAND
WE CUT THEIR HAIR AND CUT THEIR HANDS
FOR RAIN
HERE IT COMES
HERE IT COMES
HERE IT COMES

EVERYTHING'S GONNA BE ALRIGHT
BE ALRIGHT
BE ALRIGHT JUST LIKE WHEN WE WERE YOUNG
ALL IT TAKES IS A LITTLE FAITH
A LITTLE FAITH
AND JUST A DROP OF WATER ON MY TONGUE

SEE THE CLOUDS’ ARRIVAL
HOLDING WATER AND SURVIVAL
PRAY FOR RAIN
IF IT THUNDERS, IF IT HAILS
JUST GIVE ENOUGH TO FILL OUR PAILS UP
PRAY FOR RAIN
HERE IT COMES
HERE IT COMES
HERE IT COMES


HERE IT COMES
THERE IT GOES
HERE IT COMES
THERE IT GOES
ONE MORE DAY WITHOUT A DROP
WE HAVE A WAY TO MAKE THIS STOP

HERE IT COMES (HERE IT COMES)
THERE IS GOES (THERE IT GOES)
HERE IT COMES (HERE IT COMES)
THERE IS GOES (THERE IT GOES)
A MOTHER SENDS A SON OR SENDS A DAUGHTER
THAT’S THE WAY THAT BLOOD TURNS INTO WATER
