Don't you know what time it is? It's early.
I know you find it hard to sleep but
Surely you will, surely you will
Lay down.

I'm an evil man I don't mind sayin'
I've been drinkin' all this day.
Keep your tongue still and your eyes wide open,
These words are all I've got to say.

Never truck with a lie.
Turn around and leave it lie
Turn around and leave it
Turn around and leave it lie
When it rains, it pours.
When it rains, lay down.

My roof has got a leak but only when it's raining.
It's a shifty lookin' beater.
Naked arms and legs and buckets dripping.
The water's sweet, the woman sweeter.
I'm goin' over Jordan, I'm goin' over Jordan.
I'm goin' way back home to meet her.

When it rains, it pours.
When it rains,
Lay down lay down lay down lay down.

My name is forgettable,
So I invite you to remember this tale.
My days have been miserable.
But don't you get the wrong idea.
The rhythm of her cool northern voice,
Drew me in and I didn't have a choice.
The rhythm of her cool northern smile,
Drew me in and I've been there for a while.
The rhythm of her cool northern ways,
Drew me in and now I spend my days

Remembering

Remembering the rain.

Drink from the vessel I drink from. Eat from my plate.
This poor dry meal my supper, bathe in the taste of my fate.

Never truck with a lie. Oh no.
Turn around and leave it lie
Turn around and leave it
Turn around and leave it
Turn around and leave it lie
When it rains, it pours.
When it rains,
Lay down lay down lay down lay down.

This conversation began a hundred years ago.
A book of days within that year,
Body's severed from it's soul.
Dead ground turning, dead ground turning.
My mind's a tomb within my skull.

When it rains, it pours.
When it rains,
Lay down lay down lay down lay down.

When it rains, it pours.
When it rains,
Lay down lay down lay down lay down.
Lay down, lay down, lay down, lay down
