Rainmaker Lyrics

Artist: Hank Williams, Jr.
Album: Ballads Of The Hills And Plains

1. The fields were parched like cinders; rivers all dried up-
When a stranger appeared in a little town they called Dry Gulch.
When he said, "I'm a rainmaker.", most of the folks just stood in doubt;
But could he be the miracle sent Lord, to end this awful drought?

Things in old Dry Gulch haven't been the same
Since the old rainmaker came to make it rain.

2. Without a moment's hesitation they all agreed to pay his fee,
When he said for a thousand dollars boys, "I'll moisten your sandy sea!"
They gathered every penny; from far and wide they came
To have a big celebration, for tonight it was gonna rain.

3.As he was preparin' his potion the hearts were filled with love
And every eye was fixed on those cloudless skies above.
Hour after hour- but no rain came down
And they caught the old rainmaker- just as he was leavin' town.
Yeah, they hung the rainmaker beneath the dead oak tree;
As he cried and he pleaded, "Just wait! Wait- and you're gonna see!"

Ending Chorus:
Things in old Dry Gulch haven't been the same.
When they hung the rainmaker, they walked home in the rain.
When they hung the rainmaker, they walked home in the rain
