Southern Rains

Song Author Roger Alan Murrah Performer: Mel Tillis Submitted by: Anonymous

[G]Sometimes my soul gets weary and my [C]mind begins to [G]wonder
And like that old train the Hummingbird it goes to [D7]Alabam
[G]They say home is where the heart is and [C]mine is down in [G]Dixie
And when you go down to Dixie you're [D7]heading for higher [G]ground

(Southern rain) blowing from the [C]coast of Missis[G]sippi
(Southern rain) I feel better when those [A7]southern waters hit [D7]me   
[G]I can't dip into Jordan seven [C]times to ease the [A7]pain   
But I can [G]pray for help and [D7]hope from southern [C]ra-in

[G](Southern rain) like the sunshine it's a [C]blessing sent from [G]heaven
(Southern rain) they can wash away your [A7]cares if you let [D7]them   
[G]You may not believe my story and [C]you may say I'm [A7]insane
But they're the [G]closest thing to [D7]home those southern [C]rains

[G]Homesick is a feeling that a [C]body can't get [G]over
There's no such thing as healing and it won't go away with [D7]time   
[G]When we´re young we want to get away when we're [C]old we want to go [G]back
And we spend our lives replacing all the [D7]things we leave [G]behind

[G](Southern rain) like the sunshine it's a [C]blessing sent from [G]heaven
(Southern rain) they can wash away your [A7]cares if you let [D7]them   
[G]You may not believe my story and [C]you may say I'm [A7]insane
But they're the [G]closest thing to [D7]home those southern [C]rains

[G]Homesick is a feeling that a [C]body can't get [G]over
There's no such thing as healing and it won't go away with [D7]time   
[G]When we´re young we want to get away when we're [C]old we want to go [G]back
And we spend our lives replacing all the [D7]things we leave [G]behind


Sometimes my soul gets weary and my mind begins to wonder
And like that old train the Hummingbird it goes to Alabam
They say home is where the heart is and mine is down in Dixie
And when you go down to Dixie you're heading for higher ground

(Southern rain) blowing from the coast of Mississippi
(Southern rain) I feel better when those southern waters hit me
I can't dip into Jordan seven times to ease the pain
But I can pray for help and hope from southern ra-in

(Southern rain) like the sunshine it's a blessing sent from heaven
(Southern rain) they can wash away your cares if you let them
You may not believe my story and you may say I'm insane
But they're the closest thing to home those southern rains

Homesick is a feeling that a body can't get over
There's no such thing as healing and it won't go away with time
When we´re young we want to get away when we're old we want to go back
And we spend our lives replacing all the things we leave behind

(Southern rain) like the sunshine it's a blessing sent from heaven
(Southern rain) they can wash away your cares if you let them
You may not believe my story and you may say I'm insane
But they're the closest thing to home those southern rains

Homesick is a feeling that a body can't get over
There's no such thing as healing and it won't go away with time
When we´re young we want to get away when we're old we want to go back
And we spend our lives replacing all the things we leave behind
