Not A Drop Of Rain

             [Intro]
C

[Verse]
C
Streets are almost empty, the shops are all closed down
        Em
There's not a soul left in the bar to tell my troubles to
           Am
Think I'll walk down to the river, then head just south of town
      F
But I hate like Hell when there's nothing left to do
C                 G                Am             F      G  F
Stand beneath the river bridge and listen for the train
     Am               Em      G          F  C
It's been a long, hot summer, not a drop of rain

[Verse]
C
I broke down in December, headed for the coast
  Em
I thought the wind and water would elevate my mind
  Am
I surfaced in the springtime feeling like a ghost
F
Missing more than ever the things I left behind
        C                G             Am             F      G  F
Now I'm standing on this riverbank and still cannot explain
     Am               Em      G          F  C
It's been a long, hot summer, not a drop of rain

[Verse]
C
My bag is full of letters, unopened and unread
    Em
I'm sure they tell the story of worry and of farm
   Am
My heart is beating heavy with all we left unsaid
  F
I swear to you, I never meant you any harm
    C             G                Am              F       G  F
But sacrifice and compromise could never stand the strain
     Am               Em      G          F  C
It's been a long, hot summer, not a drop of rain

[Verse]
C
And tonight I'll close my eyes again, try to see your face
    Em
And listen for your voice to tell me it's all right to sleep
   Am
Convince myself I'll wake up in another time and place
F
Knowing all the while, it's a promise I can't keep
  C                G          Am             F      G  F
A string of broken promises, another link of chain
     Am               Em      G          F  C
It's been a long, hot summer, not a drop of rain

[Verse]
C
Children on the playground, the lovers in the shade
  Em
Remind me of a life and time that feels more like a dream
         Am
When the sound of love and laughter was the music that we played
   F
As we lay beside the waters of a never-ending stream
        C                    G           Am                F     G  F
Now the stream has gone into hiding, the dream lives on in vain
     Am               Em      G          F  C    F  C  F
It's been a long, hot summer, not a drop of rain

[Verse]
    C
The clouds are building slowly on the skyline to the east
    Em
The wind and dust are dancing like the Devil across the lake
        Am
I could try to find a bottle or try to find a priest
   F
Salvation won't be travelling either road I take
     C              G                Am            F      G  F
So I turn my collar to the wind that echoes this refrain
     Am               Em      G          F  C
It's been a long, hot summer, not a drop of rain
