Rain can be a fine source of inspiration for a song. Think of the great ones, like Singin' In the Rain, and Buckets of Rain, Rainy Days and Mondays, and A Rainy Night in Georgia, and I Can't Stand the Rain- you get the idea, there are hundreds (possibly thousands) of rain songs. Therefore, it is with a great deal of humility that I drop this one on yins.

Many thanks to Stokers Doug Riley and Dave Bronson for mandolin and guitar!

Drivin' Rain

Long grey Cadillac Coupé de Ville
400 horses behind the grill
I'm plowing fast through the passin' lane
The weather's fine, it's a drivin' rain

I got maps from Maine to Mexico
A credit card from Texaco
I got the interstate and the old back lane
To take me through this drivin' rain

A drivin' rain that'll make you feel
Like only the rain and the road's for real
The singin' tires will ease my pain
I'm gonna get lost in a drivin' rain

I got power steering and cruise control
Nothin' to upset my soul
A millionaire in a Lear jet plane
's got nothin' on me in a drivin' rain

A drivin' rain that'll make you feel
Like only the rain and the road's for real

Well, it ain't no Cadillac anyway
's only my knocked-out Chevrolet
But I got my wheels and I won't complain
The weather's fine, it's a drivin' rain
Yeah I got my wheels and I won't complain
The weather's fine, it's a drivin' rain

The weather's fine, it's a drivin' rain
The weather's fine, it's a drivin' rain
The weather's fine...
