"Rainmaker" as written by Jim Capaldi and Steve Winwood....
The fields were perched like cinders rivers all dried up
When a stranger appeared in a little town they called Dried Gulge
When he said I'm a rainmaker most of the folks just stood in doubt
But could he be the miracle sent Lord to end this awful drought
Things in old Dried Gulge happened then the same
Since the old rainmaker came to make it rain
Without a moments hesitation they all agreed the pay is fee
When he said for a thousand dollars boys I'll moss in your sandy sea
They gathered every penny from far and wide they came
To have a big celebration for tonight it was gonna rain

As he was preparin' his potion the hearts were filled with love
And every eye was fixed on those cloudly skies above
Hour after hour but no rain came down
And they caught the old rainmaker just as he was leavin' town
Yeah they hung the rainmaker beneath the dead oak tree
As he cried and he pleaded just wait wait and you're gonna see
Things in old Dried Gulge happened then the same
When they hung the rainmaker they walked on in the rain
When they hung the rainmaker they walked on in the rain
