Brought in a Fender amp with vibrato, a set of blues harps my wife got me for Christmas, an old Epiphone 335 with a slide, and this song pretty much assembled itself..

Written by M. Brewer...all voices and instuments by M. Brewer

I look behind...what do I see?
There's a dark cloud, and it's following me
I try to run...try to stay ahead
But these boots I'm wearing, they feel like lead

This road I'm taking, it goes nowhere
My body's aching, but no one cares
No use crying these tears in vain
One day of sunshine, seven days of rain..

The nights are cold...and the days run long
My redemption has come and gone
I close my eyes...and I say a prayer
I hear footsteps, but no one's there

You take your chances, and you take your turn
I looked for answers, and I tried to learn
I drove that white line, and I rode that train
One day of sunshine, seven days of rain

Someday you'll see...that promised land
Your day of glory is close at hand
When you arrive...speak up for me
Say "God have mercy", set me free

This road I've chosen, it goes nowhere
I give up hoping, but no one cares
No use crying these tears in vain
One day of sunshine, seven days of rain x

Songs with RAIN in the Title
There's nothing like a 7x24 committment to precipitation. Forget the tears, get down and muddy with this southern slowbeat rocker haunted by echoes of Little Feat, Lynyrd Skynyrd, and the Allman Brothers. -- J. Strell
