Song Description

Thank God for the Rain was originally written about the terrible droughts which affected most of the country last year. However, it has a much greater reach than just a simple Midwest message. It is about being grateful no matter what the circumstance.

Lyrics

Verse 1:
They say down by Austin got the worst of it,
I guess they didn't see my place.
My fields ain't seen a drop of rain in 74 days
And I'm still counting waiting on the winds to change
Everybody's talking like they're ready to give up,
But I'm not ready to give in just yet.

Chorus:
And I know that He must have His reasons
So I just thank Him for another sunny day
Keep holding on to faith and just believing
And praying that soon my prayers will say,
Goodnight Lord, and thank God for the rain.

Verse 2:
I can smell the smoke from thirty miles away
Blowing in headed for my land.
Waited all my life to get a place of my own
And grow a family, just like my father had.
All the dreams I had are close to going up in flames,
But if I'm lucky close is all it's gonna get.

Repeat Chorus:
And I know that He must have His reasons
So I just thank Him for another sunny day
Keep holding on to faith and just believing
And praying that soon my prayers will say,
Goodnight Lord, and thank God for the rain.

Bridge:
I can hear the thunder rolling in across the field
It sounded like it's coming from the west...

Repeat Chorus:
And I know that He must have His reasons
So I just thank Him for another sunny day
Keep holding on to faith and just believing
And praying that soon my prayers will say,
Goodnight Lord, and thank God for the rain.

Goodnight Lord, and thank God for the rain.
