Cruel Wind And Rain

Lyrics: Robert Hunter
Music: Jim Lauderdale

Don't try to keep a good man down
In favour of some perfect clown
Don't try to knock a good man to his knees

Don't try to keep a good man down
For someone from the lost and found
Who knows just who to kiss and who to please

Oh, that cruel wind and rain
Puts fever in my brain
It leaves my heart in pain
Oh, that cruel wind
And oh, that driving rain
And oh, my love, God knows who's to blame

Don't go to sleep on angry words
Heard that message from the birds
You wake up with the devil in your ear

Tell them just how right you are
Like you always been so far
The kind of message we all love to hear

Oh, that cruel wind and rain
Puts fever in my brain
It leaves my heart in pain
Oh, that cruel wind
And oh, that driving rain
And oh, my love, God knows who's to blame

Oh, that cruel wind and rain
Puts fever in my brain
It leaves my heart in pain
Oh, that cruel wind
And oh, that driving rain
And oh, my love, God knows who's to blame

Oh, that cruel wind
And oh, that driving rain
And oh, my love, God knows who's to blame
