about

When I was a kid...way back, we used to watch cowboy films in black and white on the TV...On hot summer day's my grandfather would use a water sprinkler on the lawn to keep the grass from burning, me and my friends would play cowboy's and indian's and jump with our imaginary horses through the millions of tiny droplets of water......The sprinkler was made of brass and stamped on the side in big letters was..."THE RAIN KING" looking back now, to better times when we where young....

lyrics

The Rain King....

Standing by the river watching the water
Thinking of you baby
Waiting on a boat to take me to the pool of life
Running through my mind are the pictures from summer of 67
The time I felt most alive.


I was young then
I was just a kid
Dodging bullets on the high plain
With songs to sing and dreams to live.

Today the whole worlds closed it's eyes I shout but I can't wake it
That's just the way things are and baby I can't change it
Let's fire up the rain king be kids again dodging bullets on the high plain
Oh my, oh my I want those times again..


I was young then
I was just a kid
Dodging bullets on the high plain
With songs to sing and dreams to live.

My god and me don't care for no religion that takes away peoples will
My god and me have no time for hurting my god and me have got no time for sin
My god and me have been waiting for so long
Just to fit in


I was young then
I was just a kid
Dodging bullets on the high plain
With songs to sing and dreams to live.
