A Thing Called Rain(Chords)

Jackie Greene

Key: D
Capo on 2nd fret

I think I'll quit my job today 
Spend the money that I saved 
I think I'll build a boat for me 
And sail myself across the sea 

'Cause every night the sun goes down 
The morning helps me come around 
The coffee likes to chase the booze 
The booze, it likes to chase the blues 

I kept your picture in a frame 
I kept your heart out on a chain 
But hearts don't belong on chains 
And pictures don't belong in frames 

People come and people go 
Foe to friend and friend to foe 
And you do just what you're supposed to do 
'Cause the clock don't ever stop for you 

And she thinks she knows me, oh so well 
For six nights in a cheap motel 
She gave her heart away for free 
She gave it all away to me 

But I'm needle dancin' on a pin 
Match under my heels again 
Not every bird will sing for you 
Don't matter how you ask her to 

I can't believe the way she acts 
She doesn't even know the facts 
But ain't that just the way it goes 
You're telling truth in liars clothes 

Born and raised and born again 
I can't tell you why or when 
But everything will happen twice 
Sure as fire, plain as ice 

So it's broken hearts and dusty roads 
And somewhere there, my soul explodes 
With every piece of everyday 
And everything I meant to say 

And where I'll be, no one can tell 
I'm fishing in a wishing well 
I'm doing the best I can 
I hope you'll understand 

Now I seen the lights that shine 
Countless colors in my mind 
They climb and swim and spark and glow 
And ask me what it is I know 

I know a thing called love 
A thing called thunder in the sky above 
And I know a thing called pain 
I know a thing called rain
