"Saddle In The Rain" as written by and John Prine....
I wish, I hope, I wonder
Where you're at sometimes
Is your back against the wall?
Or just across the line
Have you been standing in the rain
Reciting nursery rhymes?
Trying to recall
Some long lost kind of peace of mind
Peace of mind
Try spending the night sometime
All alone in a frozen room
Afterneath you've lain
Your Saddle in the rain

I dreamed they locked God up
Down in my basement
And he waited there for me
To have this accident
So he could drink my wine
And eat me like a sacrament
And I just stood there like I do
Then I came and went
I came and went
Like a bird in a foreign sky
Couldn't even say good bye
Or come and share the pain
My Saddle's in the rain

I saw a friend who doesn't know
If I'm his friend just yet
His eyes and mouth were widely open
And his jaw was set
Like he'd fell off a cliff
And hadn't hit the bottom yet
I wish he wouldn't pull those things on me
Without a net
Without a net
I had him up to the house one time
And we was having a real good time
Then he went and lain
His Saddle in the rain

In a laundromat not too far
From the Alamo
Sits a girl who stole my records
Very long ago
And she wishes, wants and washes
Out those dirty clothes
As she shuts her eyes and dreams
About her one eyed Joe
One eyed Joe
Car parked on a dirty road
Heaven knows the load she pulled
Couldn't take the strain
A Saddle in the rain

    General CommentJohn does another verse to this song...... and it goes something like..... "" These sothern storms blo locals dark blu in height, Black clouds ,twisting oars as it goes flashing by....like some deep religious painting hanging in the sky.....that u just touch by faith and break down and cry, break down and cry...if they should ever come down your way, want u grab em by the throat and say......won't u please explain.....this saddle in the rain........,,I would like to know if there is anyone out there who knows what the real lyrics actually say??? This is just what it sounds like they are saying. I really love the song, and I am a John Prine Fan with much respect for the man and his lyrics. For that reason alone.....I'd like to be sure of the lyrics......and I'd like to know if anyone knows why the lyrics are not included
