"And On A Rainy Night" as written by and Shawn Mullins....
February rain smoky mountain fire
Like a hummingbird to cane
Just following desire
Watch the firelight

Throw shadows across the room
Many miles away
Not far from cannery row
He beats on his guitar

And does his little show
And all the people say
You got balls to play the game this way
It's one in a million

So he fills all the holes
With good wine from mussel sholes
And the cencemillian
These streets were bound to cross

Maybe lifetimes ago
Whenever innocence is lost
We got a long way to go
We got a long way

Watch the firelight throw
Shadows across the room
And on a rainy night
Two lovers held each other tight

In the moonlight (he felt so good in her arms)
In the moonlight (he felt so good in her arms)
In the moonlight (he felt so good in her arms)

    TranslationIs the lyric "And the cencemillian" correct? I thought the line was, "And the SENSIMILLIA." "Sensimillia" (a type of marijuana) seems, to me, to follow "good wine from Mussel Shoals," as both could be understood to be intoxicants he's using in order to cope.
    However, if "And the cencemillian" IS correct, (and every other lyric site that I'VE checked has the lyric as, "And the cencemillian" as well, so I may be completely off base,) then WHAT is cencemillian? I've tried to look it up, but I haven't found an answer, yet.
