Subject: Nanci Griffith, Wish it would Rain...
From: GUEST,Wavestar

Does anyone know or have access to the complete lyrics of Nanci Griffith's song, I wish it would rain? ( I think that's the title..) I have these wonderful memories of sitting out under the cottonwoods in the Colorado night, in the middle of the foothills outside Buena Vista, listening to this song and watching friends of mine dancing... I've song the chorus to myself for years, but I'm getting impatient, and want all of it!

Lyrics I know:

And I wish it would rain, wash my face clean, gonna find some dark clouds to hide in, Oh love and memory sparkle like diamonds, When the diamonds fall, there's tears like rain.

Those may be somewhat changed by my head and the time... Any help much appreciated!

Cheers, -Jessica

Here you go:

I WISH IT WOULD RAIN
(Nanci Griffith)

Oh I wish it would rain
And wash my face clean
I want to find some dark cloud to hide in here
Oh love in a memory
Sparkled like diamonds
When the diamonds fall, they burn like tears
When the diamonds fall, they burn like tears

Once I had a love from the Georgia pines
Who only cared for me
I want to find that love of twenty two
Here at thirty three
I've got a heart on my right
And one on my left - neither suits my needs
No the one I love lives a-way out west
And he never will need me

Oh I wish it would rain
Wash my face clean
I want to find some dark cloud to hide in here
Oh love in a memory
Sparkled like diamonds
When the diamonds fall, they burn like tears
When the diamonds fall, they burn like tears

I'm gonna pack up my two step shoes
And head for the Gulf Coast plains
I wanna walk the streets of my own hometown
Where everybody knows my name
I wanna ride the waves down in Galveston
When the hurricanes blow in
'Cos the Gulf Coast water tastes sweet as wine
When your heart's rollin' home in the wind

Oh I wish it would rain
And wash my face clean
I want to find some dark cloud to hide in here
Oh love in a memory
Sparkled like diamonds
When the diamonds fall, they burn like tears
When the diamonds fall, they burn like tears
When the diamonds fall, darlin', they burn like tears

Correction:

I WISH IT WOULD RAIN
(Nanci Griffith)

Oh I wish it would rain
And wash my face clean
I want to find some dark cloud to hide in here
Oh love in a memory
Sparkles like diamonds
When the diamonds fall, they burn like tears
When the diamonds fall, they burn like tears

Once I had a love from the Georgia pines
Who only cared for me
I want to find that love of twenty two
Here at thirty three
I've got a heart on my right
And one on my left - neither suits my needs
No the one I love lives a-way out west
And he never will need me

Oh I wish it would rain
Wash my face clean
I want to find some dark cloud to hide in here
Oh love in a memory
Sparkles like diamonds
When the diamonds fall, they burn like tears
When the diamonds fall, they burn like tears

I'm gonna pack up my two steppin' shoes
And head for the Gulf Coast plains
I wanna walk the streets of my own hometown
Where everybody knows my name
I wanna ride the waves down in Galveston
When the hurricanes blow in
'Cos the Gulf Coast water tastes sweet as wine
When your heart's rollin' home in the wind

Oh I wish it would rain
And wash my face clean
I want to find some dark cloud to hide in here
Oh love in a memory
Sparkles like diamonds
When the diamonds fall, they burn like tears
When the diamonds fall, they burn like tears
When the diamonds fall, darlin', they burn like tears

(Not many corrections. Chorus is ALL in the present tense, and it's "two-steppin' shoes because the two-step is a dance.)
