VERSE
G           C/G            G
 I hear the drizzle of the rain 
Am      Asus4/G C   /B /A  Bm/F#   
 Like a memo-   ry  it     falls
G         Bm/F#   G   C
 Soft and warm continuing 
Am       Asus2/G  D      | G C/G | G C/G | G C/G | G C/G |    
 Tapping on my    roof and walls 


VERSE 
G             C/G         | G C/G | G | 
 And from the shelter of my mind
Am           Asus2/G C   /B /A  Bm/F#   
 Through the window  of   my    eyes
  G      Bm/F#    G             C
I gaze beyond the rain drenched streets 
Am         D       | G C/G | G C/G | G C/G | G C/G |    
 To England where my heart lies

VERSE
G             C/G            G
 My mind's distracted and diffused 
Am               Asus2/G  C    /B /A  Bm/F#   
 My thoughts are many     miles a-    way
     G        Bm/F#    G       C
They lie with you when you're asleep 
    Am       Asus2/G     D            | G C/G | G C/G | G C/G | G C/G |    
And kiss you when you-ou-ou start your day  


VERSE
      G          C/G             G
And a song I was writing is left undone 
Am            Asus2/G  C     /B /A  Bm/F#   
 I don't know why  I   spent my     time
G        Bm/F#   G       C
 Writing songs I can't believe 
     Am         Asus2/G  D          | G C/G | G C/G | G C/G | G C/G |    
With words that tear a-a-nd strain to rhyme

VERSE
G           C/G                G
 And so you see I have come to doubt 
Am        Asus2/G C    /B /A Bm/F#   
 All that I once  held as    true
G         Bm/F#    G     C
 I stand alone without beliefs 
    Am   Asus2/G D      | G C/G | G C/G | G C/G | G C/G |    
The only truth I know is you 


VERSE
G         C/G                G
 And as I watch the drops of rain 
Am           Asus2/G  C     /B /A  Bm/F#   
 Weave their weary    paths and    die
G            Bm/F# G        C
 I know that I am  like the rain
Am          Asus2/G         D    | G C/G | G C/G | G C/G | G C/G |    
 There but for the grace of you go I
