How To Play

INTRO
G   D   Am   G   D   Am
 
VERSE
G                     D
Times were rough when times were lean,
C                               G      D   Am  C
Most of the time nobody seemed to care.
G                  D
No more peace in a southern breeze,
C
Whistlin' through the willow trees
      G      D         Am   G/B
And I see you standin' there.
C           G/B               Am   G/B
And I reach out to touch your face,
C                 G/B           Am           D
But the cold hard facts of life put me in my place.
 
C        D     G               G7
Southern rain, fallin' down on me.
C                 D                 G                  G7
Think I'm back to yesterday and the way things used to be.
C                 D          G         F#m     Em
Sweet Home on the radio, why do things have to change?
C               D                 C         D        G
Oh Lord, what I would not give to feel that southern rain.
 
G D Am C
 
G                  D            C
Watermelon growin' on the vine, the sweet taste of homemade wine,
        G         D              Am   C
And the soft touch of your fingertips.
G                  D
Layin' down by the riverside,
C
Do you recall how we used to hide,
   G      D          Am    G/B
So I could taste your lips?
C                   G/B                 Am   G/B
Though the winds of change took me from home,
C                  G/B             Am           D
So many years just pass me by, and now I'm all alone.
 
C        D     G               G7
Southern rain, fallin' down on me.
C                 D                 G                  G7
Think I'm back to yesterday and the way things used to be.
C                 D          G         F#m     Em
Sweet Home on the radio, why do things have to change?
C               D                 C         D        G    G7
Oh Lord, what I would not give to feel that southern rain.
F             C                G     F G
You said that we could last forever,
F            C                G    F G
But I had my wild oats yet to sow.
F         C                Em
For every storm and each endeavour,
C                G/B                Am              D
The past and the love we found just will not let me go.
 
C        D     G               G7
Southern rain, fallin' down on me.
C                 D                 G                  G7
Think I'm back to yesterday and the way things used to be.
C                 D          G         F#m     Em
Sweet Home on the radio, why do things have to change?
C               D                 C         D        Em  G
Oh Lord, what I would not give to feel that southern rain.
C               D                 C         D                  G
Oh Lord, what I would not give to feel that southern, southern rain.
 
D  Am   C                        G   D   Am  C  G
        Oh to feel that southern rain. (repeat to finish)
