  1. January Rain

From the recording January Rain

Lyrics

He left tonight
He’s driving south
Into that January rain
Too many years
Of hand-to-mouth
An emptiness he can’t explain

He’s gone, gone, gone, gone away
He’s gone away

He took the dog
His old guitar
And sixteen dollars from the drawer
That beat up Ford
It can’t get far
But there’s nobody keeping score

He’s gone, gone, gone, gone away
He’s gone away

After too long
You just give in
When all your efforts are in vain
You mourn the life
That might have been
And all that January rain

He’s gone, gone, gone, gone away
He’s gone away

And in awhile
He’ll settle down
Somewhere the winter brings the sun
Another chance
A different town
Just hoping for a better run

He’s gone, gone, gone, gone away
He’s gone away
He’s gone, gone, gone, gone
He’s gone away
