“Someday The Rains Will Fall”

John Mellencamp

 

 

Someday the rains will fall

When you expect it least

Someday the rains will fall

 

When I first come down here from the country

Came to the fork in the road

One way went nowhere

And the other, it carried a heavy load

 

Someday the rains will fall

When you expect it least

Someday the rains will fall

 

Your eyes and mind are always looking for trouble

What if it permeates the brain

Try to take a shortcut home

And you end up back where you started, again

 

Someday the rains will fall

When you expect it least

Someday the rains will fall

 

Hurry down the alley with another man’s woman

You don’t care nothing about the ring on her hand

You think surely you can get away

And sometimes maybe you can

 

Someday the rains will fall

When you expect it least

Someday the rains will fall

 

You’re all just a bunch of lousy liars

Never seen a hypocrite before

Then you would love to judge each other

But hypocrites we are forever more

 

Someday the rains will fall

When you expect it least

Someday the rains will fall

 

So we jiggle up the horserace

Oh man, that desire to win

Keeps our bellies so hungry

And we all want to repent in the end

 

Someday the rains will fall

When you expect it least

Someday the rains will fall
