    Intro: / Cadd9 - - - / Asus4 - - - / x4

     

    Cadd9                       Asus4

       The sky is crying the streets are full of tears

    Cadd9                  Asus4

       Rain come down and wash away my fears and all this

      Em (2)

    writing on the wall  oh I can read between the

     Am      / C - (G) - /

    lines

     

    C                   Am

     Rain come down forgive this dirty town

    C                    Am

     Rain come down and give this dirty town a drink of

    Em (2)

    water  A drink of

     Am  / - - - C /

    wine

     

    Chorus:

    G (1/2)    (Am) (1/2)   F

     If I been hard on you     I never chose to be

    G (1/2)    (Am) (1/2)   F

     I never wanted no one else

    G (1/2)    (Am) (1/2)       / Em - Am G /

     I tried my best to be somebody you'd be close to

      F (walkdown)      G (2)

    Hand in  hand like lovers are supposed to

     

               Cadd9             Asus4

    As you'd sleep I'd think my heart would break in two

                    Cadd9           Asus4

    I'd kiss your cheek I'd stop myself from waking you

                Em (2)

    But in the dark you'd speak my name  You'd say baby what's

    Am      / C - (G) - /

    wrong

     

         C                  Am

    Oh, here I am baby I'm coming back for more

                C                  Am

    I'm like a wave that's got to roll into the shore

            Em (2)

    Yes and if my love's in vain   How come my love is so

       Am  / - - - C /

    strong

     

    Chorus

     

    / D - - - / Dsus4 - (D) - / x2

     

    Solo:

    / D - - - / - - - - / - - - - / - - C - /

    / F - - - / - - - - / G - - - / - - - - /

    / - - - - / - - - - /

     

         Cadd9                    Asus4

    Now you and me go parallel together and apart

             Cadd9                               Asus4

    And you keep your perfect distance and it's tearing at my heart

             Em (2)

    Did you never feel the distance  Did you never try to cross

         Am    / C - (G) - /

    the line

     

                  C                       Am

    'Cause it's another dirty river and another dirty scar

        C                                     Am

    And I don't know who's kissing you and I don't know where you are

        Em (2)

    So far from home   Don’t you think of

    Am  / - - - C /

    me sometime

     

    Chorus x2  (play / - - F C / as last measure of 1st chorus)

     

    Interlude:

    / G - - - / - - - - / - - - - / - - - - /

    / C - - - / Am - - - / C - - - / Am - - - /

     

            Cadd9                  Asus4

    Well, sky is crying see the streets are full of tears

    Cadd9                Asus4

     Rain come down and wash away my fears   and all this

      Em (2)

    writing on the wall  oh I can read between the

     Am (3)  

    lines

     

    End on Am
