Capo 5th fret

[INTRO]
 3/4                                 4/4
| Cmaj7 | % | Gmaj7 | % | Cmaj7 | % | Dsus4 |


[VERSE]
G            D7sus4/G   G            D7sus4/G
Seven lonely days and a dozen towns ago
  G               D7sus4/G           G     G7
I reached out one night and you were gone
C                    D                G             Em
Don't know why you'd run, what you're running to or from
A7sus4     A7   A7sus4  A7        | Dsus4 Dsus2 | D |
All I know is I want to bring you home


[VERSE]
       G              D7sus4/G  G              D7sus4/G
So I'm walking in the rain,     thumbin' for a ride
        G       G7sus4    G        G7
On this lonely   Kentucky backroad
     C                  D     G              Em
I've loved you much too long;  my love's too strong
   A7sus4     A7     A7sus4  A7          Dsus4 D   Cmaj7   Cmaj7/B
To let you go, never knowing   what went wrong.


[CHORUS]
A                           G  D/F#
Kentucky rain keeps pouring down
Bm                      Em   D    C    Bm Cmaj7
 And up ahead's another town that I'll go walking through
         Gmaj7             Em
With the rain in my shoes (rain in my shoes)
Em  Em    D     C     Dsus4
Searching for   you----
       D             G       Bm     C           
In the cold Kentucky rai-y-ai-ai-ai-ain, 
                                3/4         4/4
       D             | G Gmaj7 | Cmaj7 | % | Dsus4 D |
In the cold Kentucky rain


[VERSE]
G                D7sus4/G      G                D7sus4/G
Showed your photograph to some old gray bearded men
        G              D7sus4/G      G    
Sitting on a bench outside a general store
           C               D        
They said "Yes, she's been here"
          G             Em 
But their memory wasn't clear.
       A7sus4     A7     A7sus4   A7  | Dsus4 | Dsus4 D Dsus2 D |
Was it yesterday?    No, wait the day before


[VERSE]
G             Dm7/G       G                Dm7/G
Finally got a ride, with a preacher man who asked,
           G               Dm7/G        G    
"Where you bound on such a cold, dark afternoon?"
      C                    D           G            Em
As we drove on through the rain, as he listened I explained
        A7sus4      A7   A7sus4      A7       Dsus4 D   Cmaj7
And he left me with    a prayer that I'd find you


[CHORUS] (+ outro)
A                           G  D/F#
Kentucky rain keeps pouring down
Bm                      Em   D    C    Bm Cmaj7
 And up ahead's another town that I'll go walking through
         Gmaj7             Em
With the rain in my shoes (rain in my shoes) 
Em  Em    D     C     Dsus4
Searching for   you----
       D             G       Bm     C           
In the cold Kentucky rai-y-ai-ai-ai-ain 
       D             G       Bm     C           
In the cold Kentucky rai-y-ai-ai-ai-ain 
       D             G    Bm          C           
In the cold Kentucky rain, yeah yeah, yeah
       D             G       Bm     C           
In the cold Kentucky rai-y-ai-ai-ai-ain 

(repeat and fade)
