[Verse]

G                          Cadd9
The old man loaded up everything that he owned
G                          D   Dsus4 D
On a wagon and headed out west
G                          Cadd9
The old woman fearlessly faced the unknown
G                                    D  Dsus4 D
'Cause she figured he knew what was best
Cadd9                                  G
And they settled down hard on a government grant
Cadd9                                G       D
With six mouths to feed and forty acres to plant

[Chorus]

                   Em  Em7  Cadd9  D
And the rain came down
           Em               Cadd9
Like an angel come down from above
                   Em  Em7  Cadd9  D
And the rain came down 
       Em                             Cadd9    D  G
It'll wash you away and there ain't never enough


[Verse]

G                             Cadd9
Fall turned to winter another year gone
G                D  Dsus4 D
Over and over again
G                               Cadd9
Some took their lives from their land and moved on
G                                  D  Dsus4 D
And some stayed on to plow it back in
C                                   G
And the good Lord he giveth and he taketh away
Cadd9                                G           D
And the restless shall go and the faithful shall stay


[Chorus]
                  Em  Em7  C  D
And the rain came down
           Em               C
Like an angel come down from above
                   Em  Em7  C  D
And the rain came down  
       Em                             C      D    G
It'll wash you away and there ain't never enough

[Bridge]
      
D
Now my grandaddy died in the room he was born in
Cadd9                 G
Twenty-three summers ago
D                                      Cadd9
But I could have sworn he was beside me this morning
                                   G
When the sheriff showed up at my door

[Verse]

Cadd9                                         G                      
So don't you come around here with your auctioneer man
Cadd9                                         G             D                                     D
'Cause you can have the machines but you ain't taking my land


[Chorus]

                  Em  Em7  Cadd9  D
And the rain came down
           Em               Cadd9
Like an angel come down from above
                   Em  Em7  Cadd9  D
And the rain came down  
       Em                             Cadd9   D   G
It'll wash you away and there ain't never enough


[Outro]

   Cadd9    G/B    Cadd9   G/B     Cadd9   G/B     G
