ruthy go get your brother, go and get some wood
gotta build up a fire, get some warmth, god if only we could
find a place to settle, a place that's warm and dry
or maybe we get a chance, children don't you cry

pa' and the boys are just restless, they'd do any work they could
but there's 50 to do the work of 10, and my money it ain't no good
twenty cents an hour, won't buy a loaf o'bread
if the winds of fortune don't change, in a week we'll all be dead

here comes, here comes the rain
it's everything, that we don't need, oh no, no, no, nooo
here comes, here comes the rain
take away our hunger, take away our need

it was sharon and she was in labor, there's no milk to keep her strong
still the water's rising, we know it won't be long
before the river brakes the banks, mud and water owerflow
carry away, stillborn child,does no one wants to know?

here comes, here comes the rain
it's everything, that we don't need, oh no, no, no, nooo
here comes, here comes the rain
take away our hunger, take away our greed

farmers in church on sunday, they chant their holy grief
they burn their crops on monday, as crops aren't asked for need
and the cops with their rifles, they got their stocks of grain
the side of democracy, of profit and of gain

and there is no god to hear us, just the thundering of the rain
the only messiah, who can save us now, has a handful of grain
tomorrow when you find us, we're washed up on the floor
bury us in a hole and fill it full of mud

so here comes, here comes the rain
it's everything, that we don't need, oh no, no, no, nooo
here comes, here comes the rain
don't take away our hunger, take away our greed
