D G D
D A D
 
VERSE
D
When I was five years old
        G                  D
Lookin' through the window pane,
D
There was debt growin' in the fields,
       A               D
Every year it was the same,
D
There was burnt up corn,
        G       D
Livin' in a dusty haze,
D                           A
And daddy'd say good night son, I love you,
              D
And pray for rain.
 
VERSE 2
D                                 G            D
Well, it was about mid-July when daddy's pride sank,
D                         A            D
He told my momma, he was going to the bank,
D                                    G              D
He put on his Sunday's best, but it didn't hide his pain,
D
The banker said take the money son,
         A               D
But you better, pray for rain.
 
VERSE 3
D
Well there's no clouds to hide the sun,
                G             D
And there's no waters in the creeks,
D
And there's a fear in the congregation,
       A             D
Every Sunday when we meet,
D
That the devil's found West Texas
     G            D
And he may never leave,
D
The preacher gives his sermon,
     A                             D
Says pay your tithes and pray for rain.
 
VERSE 4
D
Now my daddy's land is mine,
    G                    D
And times sure ain't the same,
D
The blacktop's taken over,
           A                 D
There's no room to grow the grain,
D
And now the man down at the bank
            G               D
Well he don't understand my pain,
D                                                A
Cause he don't have to lay his head down every night,
                D
And pray for rain.
 
VERSE 5
D
When I was five years old
        G                  D
Lookin' through the window pane,
D
There was debt growin' in the fields,
       A               D
Every year it was the same,
D
There was burnt up corn,
        G       D
Livin' in a dusty haze,
D                           A
And daddy'd say good night son, I love you,
              D
And pray for rain.
