                RIDER IN THE RAIN - RANDY NEWMAN

        ( lyrics partly from ftp.uwp.edu, beware of errors )


        Slow, relaxed, like if yer riding a horse, kinda.


C/G             F         C/G              F                C/G
        Got a gun in my holster, got a horse between my knees

                F        C/G      G                    C/G
        and I'm goin' to Arizona, pardon me boys if ya please

(same chords)
I have been a desperado, raped and pillages 'cross the plain
Now, I'm goin' to Arizona, just a rider in the rain

Chorus:
               Am          C/G
        He's a rider in the rain 

               F            C/G
        He's a rider in the rain

                F        C/G
        and I'm goin' to Arizona

               G            C/G
        He's a rider in the rain


Oh, my mother's in St. Louis, and my bride's in Tennessee
So, I'm goin' to Arizona, with a banjo on my knee

Chorus

Used to work in Uncle's feed store, while he was fightin' in the war
Now I'm goin' to Arizona, ain't gonna work for him no more

I'm the son of the prairie, and the wind that sweeps the plain
So, I'm goin' to Arizona, just a rider in the rain

Chorus 2 times but last line is:  just a rider in the rain

Voice:  "Take it boys..."

Bass riff:  G A B 

(chords as in verses) Oooooo ooohoooo ooohoooo Oooooo ooohoooo ooohoooo
Ooohoo hooooooo ooohoooo oohooo hooo Ooooho hooooooo ooohoooo oohooo

Hope I got that allright heh heh heh :-)

        You can also play it with an alternate bassline
        like this - instead of playing the whole chords.

                C/G             F               G       
        e --------------   --------------   --------------   
        B -----1-----1--   -----1-----1--   -----0-----0--   
        G -----0-----0--   -----2-----2--   -----0-----0--   
        D -----2-----2--   -----3-----3--   -----0-----0--   
        A --3-----------   --3-----------   --2-----------   
        E --------3-----   --------1-----   --------3-----   

Enjoy,
        Bo.

On the chorus, if you insert a D7 between the F and the C in "goin to Arizona," it resolves very nicely and adds dimension. Give it a try!
