Heard this on The Highway on Sirius XM. Great remake of the original Bruce Hornsby song.

Tuning: Standard
Capo 4

Intro: Dm, C, Am, G
       Dm, C, F, C (2x)

    C 
The song came and went
           G             Dm
 Like the times that we spent
        F             G              C
 Hiding out from the rain under the carnival tent
    C
 I laughed and she'd smile
           G        Dm
 It would last for awhile
            F               G                     C
 You don't know what you've got till you lose it all again

[CHORUS]
                Dm         C
 Listen to the mandolin rain
                Am             G
 Listen to the music on the lake
                   Dm       C
 Oh listen to my heart break 
                F       C
 Every time she runs away
                Dm      C
 Listen to the banjo wind
             Am        G
 A sad song drifting low
                 Dm     C
 Listen to the tears roll
                      F         C
 Down my face as she turns to go

   C
 A cool evening dance
  G                         Dm                F
 Listenin to the bluegrass band takes the chill
          G              C
 From the air until they play the last song
 C
 I'll do my time
     G                  Dm                F
 Oh keeping you off my mind but there's moments
          G           C
 That I find I'm not feeling so strong

[CHORUS]
                Dm         C
 Listen to the mandolin rain
                Am             G
 Listen to the music on the lake
                 Dm        C
 Oh listen to my heart break 
                 F      C
 Every time she runs away
               Dm       C
 Listen to the banjo wind
             Am        G
 A sad song drifting low
                Dm      C
 Listen to the tears roll
                      F        C
 Down my face as she turns to go

 A#          Am
 Runnin down by the lakeshore
          C              F
 She did love the sound of a summer storm
    A#                 Am
 It played on the lake like a mandolin
          C             F       G                Dm, C, Am, G
 Now it's washing her away once again...whoa, again
 
Dm, C, F, C

      C
 The boat's steaming in
    G                  Dm
 I watch the sidewheel spin
        F              G                 C
 And I think about her when I hear that whistle blow
 C           
 I can't change my mind
     G              Dm              F
 Oh I knew all the time that she'd go
               G            C
 But that's a choice I made long ago

[CHORUS]
                Dm         C
 Listen to the mandolin rain
                Am             G
 Listen to the music on the lake
                 Dm        C
 Oh listen to my heart break
                 F      C 
 Every time she runs away
                Dm      C
 Listen to the banjo wind
             Am        G
 A sad song drifting low
                Dm      C
 Listen to the tears roll
                      F        C
 Down my face as she turns to go
                  Dm, C, Am, G, 
 As she turns to go
                Dm       C
Oh listen to my heart break
                F      C
Every time she runs away
              Dm       C
Listen to the banjo wind
          Am        G
Sad song drifting low
               Dm      C
Listen to the tears roll
                     F        C
Down my face as she turns to go

This is just my opinion, but in the verses when the chord progression goes F, G, C...I feel it should be F, G, F, C. It sounds like there is an F played after the G for about 2 beats, then switches to a C. Ex:

3rd Line, 1st Verse

F G F C
Hiding out from the rain under the carnival tent

That is just what my ear is picking up. It is subtle.

I agree but it is pretty subtle so I guess that's why I left it out idk. But you are right.
