Now play the intro again strum more notes of each chord. 
This is how you play it during the rest of the song.

Verse 1: (C*= Play C like in the intro with bass run)

Dm                        C* 
We went out on the road today
Dm                        C*
And the sky was full of tears
Dm                             C*
And each small town looked so blue to me
               Dm               C*
And seemed to ache for better years

Dm                             Am
Then my cell phone started ringing wild
Dm                      C*
Like a fire alarm from hell
Dm                                   Am
And When I picked it up a sad voice said 
Dm                             C*
It’s time to ring that golden bell

Chorus:
             Bb            Am
And I was talkin’ to the Buddha
Dm                     C*
And I made the Buddha cry
             Bb            Am
And I was talkin’ to the Buddha
Dm                  C
And I realized that I-
                           Em
I’ve been causing all this rain

Play intro

Dm                        C*
He said meet me at Joe’s Diner
Dm                   C*
Where route 6 meets 88
Dm                               C*
Well I arrived at the appointed time
Dm                                  C*
But the Buddha said you’re running late

Dm                      Am 
So we both ordered an espresso
Dm                      C*
From the owner’s new machine
Dm                          Am
And as the jukebox played Nirvana
Dm                            C*
The Buddha said ignorance is mean

Play Chorus
 

Play Intro 


Play Solo over intro chords

Dm                                         C
The Buddha said the twelve gates wait for you
Dm                    C
And creation’s in travail
Dm                             C
Waiting for us all to see the light
Dm                          C
And restore what we have failed

Dm                            Am
The Waitress said you want a refill
Dm                          C
The Buddha said there’s no time
Dm                            Am
There’s three seconds left to zero
Dm                                  C
And then that white light stole my mind

Play Chorus

Play a crazy sweet solo over the Intro chords(during Am say “help me stop the rain”)

End on Dm after playing Am

-Adam B.
