Rain Took The Rhubarb

Drew James © 2001

 

I thought the worst was over

Now the ache’s back in my heart

There’s no way to replay this game

We can’t go back to start

 

All the words that you can say

Have all been said before

They’re worn out like the dreams that lay

Scattered on our floor

 

Now the rain took the rhubarb Elmo

A storm washed away all the years

The rain took the rhubarb Elmo

Just as spring came smiling down

A tempest fell like tears

And all our hopes for harvest disappeared

 

A cold wind blew all winter

And chilled us to the bone

Our credit at the general store

Ran out months ago

 

All we had at Christmas time

Was salty pork and beans

On New Years we sang Auld Lang Syne

Then we mortgaged everything

 

Chorus

 

You said this time would be different

You said that things had changed

You promised me and I believed

It all wouldn’t be in vain

 

Then the rain took the rhubarb Elmo

A storm washed away all the years

The rain took the rhubarb Elmo

Just as spring came smiling down

A tempest fell like tears

And all our hopes for harvest disappeared
