  1. Down On Me

From the album KEEPIN IT REAL

Lyrics

It was an indian summer, back in 1976,
me and my brother got our cane poles down to fish,
we took off down that dusty road, round about dawn,
when we got to the fishin hole all the water was gone,

I saw my daddy through the window on his knees,
in the middle of that corn field,
praying for relief,
hands clutched together, praying out loud,
lord please help us, open up these clouds,
(chorus)
and let it,
Down in the city, there 's violence in the streets,
you can see the heatwaves comin off of the concrete,
fire and brimstone, lifes living hell,rain, rain, rain,
rain down on me, just let it
rain, rain, rain,
rinse my body clean, let it
rain, rain, rain,
fill the rivers and the streams, just let it
rain, rain, rain, down on me,


thieves tricks and politics,
drying up the wells, just let it
(chorus)
rain, rain, rain,
rain down on me, just let it
rain, rain, rain,
rinse my soul and body clean, let it
rain, rain, rain,
fill the rivers and the streams, just let it
rain, rain, rain, down on me,

Rain, rain, rain, rain in the desert,
let it rain, rain in the streets,
let it rain, rain on the ground grows the grass beneath your feet,
Down on me,
rain on the mountain top, let it rain,
flows in to the sea, let it rain,
lord it feels so good when its raining down on me,
down n me, just let it rain, rain on me
