JAMEY JOHNSON lyrics - The Guitar Song

Thankful For The Rain

Original and similar lyrics
You say hello like a long lost friend And play me like an old violin And in a day or two you're gone again And I wonder why I keep playing I sit and watch the clouds each day Wondering when they will turn to gray And you come and go Like a storm across the coast And expect me to be thankful for the rain Well I guess I should be thankful for All the nights of straight downpours And soaking up every drop I get 'Cause who knows how long I'll have to wait 'Til you come blowing back my way I'm learning to be thankful for the rain I know when the morning comes The truth will rise up like the sun As I'm cleaning up the damage done There's everything I prayed for You come and go Like a storm across the coast And expect me to be thankful for the rain

No Fear

FISHBONE "Give A Monkey A Brain"
There's a storm coming But there will be no rain Bringing clouds of anger From a thousand years of pain For some of us there is no shelter From the change in the weather It will find you wherever you run So if you're down for what's right There's no reason to hide For you there is no fear People dying and crying The sound of shattered dreams Drowning the voice of the future With negativity For some of us there is no answer To the change in the weather Cloud's will cover the sun So if you're down for what's right There is no reason to run For you there is no fear Run Run Run Run... But you can't hide... From the storm Lightning from the sky Will strike you down I have no fear (X2) There's a hurt coming But who will feel the pain And the tears of sadness Falling down like rain Run Run Run Run... But you can't hide... From the storm Lightning from the sky Will strike you down I have no fear (X2) There's a storm coming But there will be no rain

Protocol

GORDON LIGHTFOOT "Summertime Dream"
Who are these ones who would lead us now To the sound of a thousand guns Who'd storm the gates of hell itself To the tune of a single drum Where are the girls of the neighborhood bars Whose loves were lost at sea In the hills of France and on German soil From Saigon to Wounded Knee Who come from long lines of soldiers Whose duty was fulfilled In the words of a warriors will And protocol Where are the boys in their coats of blue Who flew when their eyes were blind Was God in town for the Roman games Was he there when the deals were signed Who are the kings in their coats of mail Who rode by the cross to die Did they all go down into worthiness Is it wrong for a king to cry And who are these ones who would have us now Whose presence in concealed Whose nature is revealed In a time bomb Last of all you old seadogs Who travel after whale You'd storm the gates of hell itself For the taste of a mermaid's tail Who come from long lines of skippers Whose duty was fulfilled In the words of a warrior's will And protocol

Keep Us

PETER BRADLEY ADAMS "Leavetaking"
When the rain set in we had nowhere left to go so we just stayed in bed while the thunder rolled there's a comfort in the rain, one that lovers only know so we lay hand in hand while the water rose ... Every season will turn til the world is upside down rivers overflow then go underground but in the eye of the storm, in the safety of this house we lay hand in hand while the world turns wrong. So keep us and keep us, keep us from the storm. There's a lesson in the rain that change will always come let us ride this wave and then greet the sun and though the ground may shake and we'll think we've had enough we must raise our flags for the ones we love. So keep us and keep us, keep us from the storm. Keep us and keep us and keep us from the storm.

Storm

GRACE JONES
Strange weather I'm having inside my head, This crazy atmosphere puts my mind to bed, But the storm in my skin is the fire where you've been, My waking eyes watch this life begin. Here comes the storm again, love is a hurricane, And every day that I live I will live for the rain, Electrify me, magnify me, feel the thunder rolling through me, Oh so mysterious, the shape of my dreams, Love is the sky falling in. Here comes the storm again, here comes the hurricane, And this life that I live, I will give to the rain, Here comes the storm again! Light patterns to a field of light, they move and live for the rain. Here comes the storm again, here comes the hurricane, And this life that I live, I will give to the rain, Here comes the storm again! Again! Here comes the storm again, bring on the clouds again, Love is a hurricane, and I live for the rain, I live for the rain!
