Lizzy and the Rainman
He came riding in on a sunrise
A hot west Texas day
A fancy man in a painted wagon
Some fancy things to say

Looks like you folks'll need some water
Well water is my game
For the small price of a hundred dollars
I bet you I can make it rain

So get away all non-believers or the rain'll never come
Someone start a fire burning, somebody beat the drum
Some may think I'm crazy for making all these claims
But I swear before the day is over your folks'll see some rain

They all just stood a staring trying to believe
But there was one named Lizzy Cooper said he was a lying cheat
She said you call yourself a rainman, well you oughta be ashamed
For starting all these people dreaming thinking you can make it rain

So get away all non-believers or the rain'll never come
Someone keep the fire burning, somebody beat the drum
Some may think I'm crazy for making all these claims
But I swear before the day is over your folks'll see some rain

Oh Lizzy, a man's gotta have a dream
And if you can walk on the inside with me
I'll meet you in between
Come with me Lizzy
And the stars'll write your name
And if you still think I'm lying to you
Look yonder here comes the rain

So get away all non-believers or the rain'll never come
Someone keep the fire burning, somebody beat the drum
Some may think I'm crazy for making all these claims
But I swear before the day is over your folks'll see some rain

So get away all non-believers or the rain'll never come
Someone keep the fire burning, somebody beat the drum
Some may think I'm crazy for making all these claims
But I swear before the day is over your folks'll see some rain
