          Em                   C
There's a man in my town named Howard McBane
D                             C               Em
Twenty years ago he said he'd come to make it rain
      Em                                C
(The) crops they all were dying back in eighteen ninety three
D                                 C                 Em
Howard came to town and told them put your faith in me
   Em                      C
He rode in on a train from east of the big river
       D                                C                 Em
It was so damn hot that morning still I couldn't help but shiver
Em                              C
Daddy told me he wa'n't nothing but a snake oil dealer
D                                 C                   Em
to these desperate farmers Howard seemed like a faith healer


Em                             C
Howard told the people if they wanted to have water
D                                     C              Em
sign the dotted line, bring him their money wine and daughters
Em                                     C
common folk get desperate when there's nowhere left to turn
     D                            C               Em
last summer was a scorcher, their fields were sun burned
   Em                                C
so they gave him what he wanted what else could they do
   D                                      C               Em
he winked and laughed and told them, I'll make it rain on you
     Em                             C
then Howard climbed the hill on the southern edge of town
       D                             C                 Em
and he ranted and he chanted and the rain came pouring down


Em                            C
Howard McBane rode in on that train
                D
come to make it rain
                            Em
this town will never be the same

Em                            C
Howard McBane rode in on that train
                D
come to make it rain
         Em
Howard McBane

Em                             C
There's a man in my town named Howard McBane
D                             C               Em
Twenty years ago he said he'd come to make it rain
    Em                                C
Now there ain't no woman in this town Howard ain't defiled
      D                             C                  Em
Ain't nothing that he don't own for two hundred square miles
     Em                              C
(We) thought he was a miracle, (but) he was no messiah
D                       C                Em
no amount of holy water can put out this fire
Em                                    C
train that came up straight from hell twenty years ago
   D                            C             Em
is heading back to Hades with a cargo of lost souls


Em                       C
Howard he is heading to another dried up town
              D                              C                   Em
where they'll sign his dotted line and he'll make that rain come down
         C         D             C          D
Howard McBane is a demon, an archangel from hell
           C          D               C             Em
drain your soul for a couple drops of water in your well
         C             D            C                 D
now your seeds are all dying in the ground where they fell
         C                                 D
and he's off to find more suckers who need rain
         Em
Howard McBane
