    Intro Riff

     

    Cmaj7 (4)                                 G (4)

             Down here the river meets the sea

    Cmaj7 (4)                                 G (4)
             And in the sticky heat I feel you open up to me

    B7 (4)                                           Em    D               Cmaj7 (2, hold 4th beat)
        Love comes out of nowhere baby, just like a hurricane
                            G (2)    Cmaj7 (2)                    G (4)

    And it feels like rain               And it feels like rain

    Cmaj7 (4)                                                 G (4)
             Lying underneath the stars right next to you

    Cmaj7 (4)                                               G (4)
            Wondering who you are, and how do you do? (How do you do baby?)
    B7 (4)                                                Em                D            Cmaj7 (2, hold 4th beat)

         The clouds roll in across the moon,     the wind howls out your name
                            G (2)    Cmaj7 (2)                    G (4)

    And it feels like rain               And it feels like rain

    B7 (4)                                                                  Em       D                  Cmaj7 (2, hold 4th beat)
         We ain’t never gonna make that bridge tonight across Lake Pontchartrain
                            G (2)    Cmaj7 (2)                    G (4)

    And it feels like rain               And it feels like rain

    Cmaj7 (4)                                                                      G (4)

            So batten down the hatches, baby, and leave your heart out on your sleeve
    Cmaj7 (4)                                                    G (4)

            It looks like were in for stormy weather,    that ain’t no cause for us to leave
    B7 (4)                                  Em               D                        Cmaj7 (2, hold 4th beat)
           Just lie here in my arms    and let it wash away the pain
                            G (2)    Cmaj7 (2)                    G (2)    Cmaj7 (2)  

    And it feels like rain               And it feels like rain
