"Rain Song" as written by and John Darnielle....
*Spoken Word*
The Mountain Goats, on the uh, well, the 20, 4th of January, a Monday... at about ten.
And uh this is called uh, this is called... well I dunno what it's called, by the time i write down the titles on the tape then I'll know what it's called.


The rain came down,
Soaked the old Hibachi.
And I wish I could sing,
Like Allen Calachi. (?)

Then you would know,
How sad it was,
When the rain came down.

Drop by drop, gallon by gallon.
Brother If I could sing, if I could sing like Allen.

Then you would know,
And understand,
How sad it was,
When the rain came down.
