Mandolin RainóBruce Hornsby

 

The song came and went

Like the times that we spent

Hiding out from the rain under the carnival tent

I laughed and she'd smile

It would last for awhile

You don't know what you got till you lose it all again

 

Listen to the mandolin rain

Listen to the music on the lake

Listen to my heart break every time she runs away

Listen to the banjo wind

A sad song drifting low

Listen to the tears roll

Down my face as she turns to go

 

A cool evening dance

Listening to the bluegrass band takes the chill

>From the air till they play the last song

I'll do my time

Keeping you off my mind but there's moments

That I find, I'm not feeling so strong

 

Listen to the mandolin rain

Listen to the music on the lake

Listen to my heart break every time she runs away

Listen to the banjo wind

A sad song drifting low

Listen to the tears roll

Down my face as she turns to go

 

Running down by the lakeshore

She did love the sound of a summer storm

It played on the lake like a mandolin

Now it's washing her away once again...again

 

Whoa whoa whoa...

Yeah-eah-eah-eah-eah-eah...

Oooooh...

Listen to...

Do, do, do...

 

The boat's steaming in

I watch the sidewheel spin and I

Think about her when I hear that whistle blow

I can't change my mind

I knew all the time that she'd go

But that's a choice I made long ago

 

Listen to the mandolin rain

Listen to the music on the lake

Listen to my heart break every time she runs away

Listen to the banjo wind

A sad song drifting low

Listen to the tears roll

Down my face as she turns to go

 

As she turns to go, oh hoh...

Listen to the mandolin rain...

Whoa whoa whoa whoa oh hoh...

 

Listen to the tears roll

Down my face as she turns to go

Listen to the tears roll

Down my face as she turns to go

 

Ahhh...

Listen to the mandolin rain...
