Hands Like Rain

	  		
Intro A D A G 

Verse 

Dm     D 
Slowly crawling 'cross the floor 
        Bm         
Comes a shadow through the window 
         A                       D 
From the house next door and the dust specks dancing 
       Bm                D                A 
In the last of the light one more evening passing 
    Dbm       D 
She walked on tiptoes on a gravel bar 
Bm                           A 
Wet skin pale as the evening star 
    D                           A          Bm 
The North Platte winding like a silver eel 
  G        D 
Hands like rain on August fields 

tabchorus
D A Bm G D A Hands like rain falling soft to ease the drought inside G D A Bm G D G D As memory fades not much remains but hands like rain

Verse Bm D G D Now I stand on stiff legs and I clutch the cane Bm A And I search the sky for a sign of rain D A Bm D As if it matters as if it makes a damn A just an old man's habit D G D Down the street the schoolboys play Bm A Dime novel heroes from another day G D Who now are nothing more than faceless names G D A And a nameless face with hands like rain
tabchorus
D A Bm G D A Hands like rain falling soft to ease the drought inside G D A Bm G D G D As memory fades not much remains but hands like rain Db D G D Bm We'd run by night and we'd hide by day A so the papers used to say D A G D A On stolen horses and borrowed time dancing girls and brandy wine

Bridge A I can hear them calling they're calling me D A I can here them calling but I still can't see (no I can?t see it)
tabchorus
D A Bm G D A Hands like rain falling soft to ease the drought inside G D A Bm G D G D As memory fades not much remains but hands like rain
tab
Bridge A G D G D Life and legend are an awkward pair Bm Em A And there ain't much magic anywhere D G Except in moments we can't often steal D A D Hands like rain on August fields
tabchorus
D A Bm G D A Hands like rain falling soft to ease the drought inside G D A Bm G D G D As memory fades not much remains but hands like rain
