Not A Drop Of Rain

	  		C                         C 
Streets are almost empty, shops are closed down 
        Em                            Em 
There?s not a soul left in the bar to tell my troubles to 
           Am                          Am 
Think I?ll walk down to the river that runs just south of town 
  F                               F 
I hate like hell when there ain't nothin? left to do 
    C                 G                Am             F 
But stand beneath the river bridge and listen for the train 
     C                       G             C 
It's been a long hot summer, not a drop of rain 


  C                                      C 
I broke down in December and headed for the coast 
  Em                               Em 
I thought the wind and water would elevate my mind 
  Am                         Am 
I surfaced in the springtime feelin? like a ghost 
F                          F  
Missin? more than ever the things I left behind 
        C                G             Am              F 
Now I'm standin? on this riverbank and still cannot ex plain 
     C                       G             C 
It's been a long hot summer, not a drop of rain 

   C                        C 
My bag is full of letters unopened and unread 
    Em                            Em 
I'm sure they?d tell the story of worry and of form 
   Am                          Am 
My heart is beating heavy with all we left unsaid 
  F                    F 
I swear to you I never meant you any harm 
    C             G                Am                  F 
But sacrifice and compromise could never stand the str ain 
     C                       G             C 
It's been a long hot summer, not a drop of rain 

C                                    C 
Tonight I?ll close my eyes again and try to see your face 
    Em                               Em 
And listen for your voice to tell me it's alright to sleep 
Am                                       Am 
Convince myself I?ll wake up in another time and place 
F 
Knowin? all the while that it's a promise I can't keep 
    C                  G                    Am          F 
A string of broken promises, another link of chain 
       C                     G             C 
It's been a long hot summer, not a drop of rain 


    C                               C 
The children on the playground, the lovers in the shade 
  Em                              Em 
Remind me of a life and time that feels more like a dream 
         Am                                 Am 
When the sound of love and laughter was the music that we played 
      F                          F 
As we lay beside the waters of a never ending stream 
        C                  G           Am                 F 
Now the stream has gone to hiding, the dream lives on in vain 
     C                       G             C 
It's been a long hot summer, not a drop of rain 

    C                                 C 
The clouds are building slowly on the skyline to the east 
    Em                                 Em 
The wind and dust are dancing like the devil across the lake 
        Am                      Am 
I could try to find a bottle or try to find a priest 
   F                         F 
Salvation won?t be traveling either road I take 
     C              G                Am            F 
So I turn my collar to the wind that echoes this refrain 
     C                       G             C 
It's been a long hot summer, not a drop of rain 
     C                       G             Am   C 
It's been a long hot summer, not a drop of rain 
     C                       G             C 
It's been a long hot summer, not a drop of rain
