FEELS LIKE RAIN - John Hiatt
----------------------------

Cmaj7   G

Cmaj7                   G
    Down here the river meets the sea
Cmaj7                                 G
    And in the sticky heat I feel you open up to me
B7
    Love comes out of nowhere baby
Em       D           Cmaj7
    Just like a hurricane
                      G     Cmaj7
    And it feels like rain
                      G
    And it feels like rain

Lying underneath the stars right next to you
Wondering who you are and how do you do (how do you do baby?)
The clouds are rolling across the moon - the wind howls out your name
And it feels like rain (x2)
Baby can you feel it?

<Solo>

We ain't ever gonna make that bridge tonight, babe
Across Lake Pontchartrain
And it feels like rain (x2)

So batton down the hatches baby, leave your heart out on your sleeve
It looks like we're in for stormy weather-
And that ain't no cause for us to leave
Just lie here in my arms and let it wash away the pain
And it feels like rain (x2)

Baby can you feel it?....
Gonna let your love wash over me.
----------

The album version of this has  2  electric  guitars, one clean with an
amp tremolo effect,  and  the  other  semi-clean,  both played WITHOUT
picks. The tremolo effect  could  possibly  be  approximated with some
hectic chorus pedal settings.  Although  John  and Sonny probably play
the two parts on the album, it  is  very impractical to play either at
the same time as singing. For practical  purposes, if you want to play
the album parts  with two  guitarists,  one singing, then the handiest
thing to do is to have the  singer  play the clean part, and the other
guitarist the semi-clean, and swap for the choruses.
I hope this isn't too confusing-  the  tab  for  the solo walks a fine
line between being understandable and not  taking up too much space so
that you don't have  to  wade  through  pages  of  tab. ASCII's such a
bummer- all this took up just  over  a single page of manuscript paper
for me. Anyway, corrections and comments always welcome.

Chorus:
This is how the chorus is played  the  first time- the last 2 bars are
played differently each verse. I'm not writing each verse out since it
takes up an awful lot of space-  refer  to  the album to get the other
fills. However, note that the last (outro) chorus consists of, more or
less, the first two bars played 9 times altogether.
