Lyrics

"Growing up in Scotland gave me a thirst for a good rain and the respect of it's mighty source."

There's an old man sittin' at the edge of the sea
Waiting to sail his boat
Kangaroos came in 2 by 2
And then the rain came down
The rain came down

There's a farmer standing at the edge of his field
Waiting for something to grow
Forty days since he started to pray
And then the rain came down
Waking up that ground
Yeah the rain came down
The rain came down

I dreamt I was walking in the border hills
Trying to find my home
The sky went black
I heard a thunder clap
And the rain came down
On that sacred ground
Yeah the rain came down
The rain came down

Rain, rain, rain wash away these stains
Feed my soul and kiss my face again
Holy rain

There's an old man floatin' in a great big sea
Waitin' to find some land
Forty days since he sailed away
When the rain came down
The rain came down
But behind those clouds
There's a rainbow now
There's a rainbow now
There's a rainbow now
Cause the rain came down
Rain came down
