RAINMAKER, THE (Mack Vickery / Carl Friend / Lance Roberts) Hank Williams Jr. - 1965 The fields were parched like cinders, rivers all dried up When a stranger appeared in a little town they called Dry Gulch 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 ol' Dry Gulch haven't been the same Since the old rainmaker came to make it rain Without a moment's hesitation they all agreed to pay his fee When he said, "For a thousand dollars, boys, I'll moisten your sandy sea" They gathered ev'ry penny, from far and wide they came To have a big celebration, for tonight it was gonna rain As he was preparin' his potion, their hearts were filled with love And ev'ry eye was fixed on those cloudless 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 ol' Dry Gulch haven't been the same When they hung the rainmaker, they walked home in the rain When they hung the rainmaker, they walked home in the rain (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - August 2012)
