"Green Grass Rainwater"

GREEN GRASS RAINWATER Lyrics by Robben Ford
Mexico a disaster
It's time I disappear
Spent my fortune on breakfast
Scrambled eggs and beer
Broke but glad to be breathing
And leaving here at last
Point myself at my future
Forget about the past

[Chorus:]
I wish you green grass, rain water
And a window taking light from the east
Providence your umbrella be
Now let your dog run free

Shook my head at the mirror
Said "save yourself while you can"
I tried harder to please you baby
Than any self-respecting man
Shake the dust off my jacket
I've fought the final fight
Can't blame fools for trying
We just didn't get it right

[Chorus]

Our labors made at love were lost
I've paid the cost for my mistakes
The tower fell but I wish you well
Don't bother about me any more
Don't bother 'bout me anymore
Hit San Diego at sundown
Another hot summer night
Made my way down to the water to see
The reflection of the harbor lights

A shining sea of illusion
The original sin
Me I've taken a good long look
I've reviewed the shape I'm in

[Chorus]
