INTRO:   G    Em    Bm     (x2)

VERSE 1:
G                    Bm/F#                Em                 G/D
Something's different, something's changed, and I don't know why
Cmaj7                                       G            D
Even the old folks can't recall when it's ever been this hot and dry
G            Bm/F#           Em           G/D
Dust devils whirlin' on the first day of July
        Cmaj7                             Dsus4              D       
It's a hundred degrees at 10 am, and not a cloud up in the sky

VERSE 2:
G              Bm/F#        Em                    G/D
We hardly had a winter, and had about a week of spring
Cmaj7                                         G                     D   
Crops are burned up in the fields, there's a blanket of dust on everything
G                   Bm/F#              Em                G/D
The weather man is sayin' that there ain't no change in sight
Cmaj7                                       Dsus4           D       
Lord, I've never been a prayin' man, but I'm sayin' one tonight

CHORUS:
                 G    Em   Bm                     G    Em   Bm    D
I'm prayin' for rain,            I'm prayin' for rain
     Cmaj7            G                   Em          D        C
Lord, I ain't never asked for much, and I don't mean to complain
                      G    Em   Bm   
But I'm prayin' for rain

VERSE 3:
G          Bm/F#    Em             G/D
I ain't no wise man, but I ain't no fool,
Cmaj7                               G              D    
And I believe that mother nature is taking us to school
G             Bm/F#              Em             G/D
Maybe we just took too much and put too little back
Cmaj7                       Dsus4        D       
It isn't knowledge, it's humility we lack

CHORUS:
                 G    Em   Bm                     G    Em   Bm    D
I'm prayin' for rain,            I'm prayin' for rain
     Cmaj7            G                   Em          D        C
Lord, I ain't never asked for much, and I don't mean to complain
                      G    Em   Bm   
But I'm prayin' for rain

BRIDGE:
Cmaj7                              G
Some people pray for victory, some people pray for peace
Cmaj7                                  G
Some people pray for extra time, some pray for sweet release 
Cmaj7                                      Em                    D
Some pray for health and happiness, for riches un-renowned 
Cmaj7                                        D
But none of this will matter much if the waters don't come down

CHORUS:
                 G    Em   Bm                     G    Em   Bm    D
I'm prayin' for rain,            I'm prayin' for rain
     Cmaj7            G                   Em          D        C
Lord, I ain't never asked for much, and I don't mean to complain
                      G    Em   Bm   
But I'm prayin' for rain

ENDING:   G    Em   Bm   
I'm prayin' for rain (rpt.)
