(Intro)
Gm7 x4
         Gm7           Eb
have you ever seen the far side
     BbM7                 EbM7
of a mountain swallow the sky
       Gm7                Eb
as you travel through the valley
            BbM7                EbM7          
and as your speedin still far behind
            BbM7               EbM7
through the valley where lovers climb
EbM7

have you ever seen the locust
lean his wings right after the blade
like ascendin of a dark cloud
in the sunlight to end the day
to kill the sunlight, to kill the day

EbM7                     Gm7    Gm7
cause it will follow the rain

have you ever seen the quiet
indecision of a man
when it's standing by the fire
with an eager friend in his hand
will he ever quite understand

EbM7                    Gm7   Gm7
that he will follow the rain
BbM7
I said oh my friend
EbM7               Gm7   Gm7
it will follow the rain

have you ever seen your baby
getting caught by the lonesome wind
and the whistling round the corners
telling you they have let her in
separation can now begin

Yes, it will follow now the rain.
I said oh my friend.
it will follow the rain
I said oh my friend
it will follow the rain

(strum chords)
have you ever seen the far side
of a mountain swallow the sky, oh
through the valley as your speeding
through the valley still far behind

(pick again)
            BbM7               EbM7
through the valley where lovers climb
            BbM7                   EbM7
where the children will blink and sigh
          BbM7               EbM7
they have caught a lightning strike
        BbM7                EbM7
in the jar just to watch it die
       BbM7               EbM7
in the valley where lovers climb
EbM7                      Gm7   Gm7
cause it will follow the rain
(final chords)
I said oh my friend
it will follow the rain
