Rainmaker Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
First day of August
Last rain was in May
When the rainmaker came to Kansas
In the middle of a dusty day
Verse 2
The rainmaker said to the people
"Tell me what you are prepared to pay"
And the rainmaker said to the people
"Now I'll conjure up a rain today."
Verse 3
Ninety degrees 'neath the trees where it's shady
A hundred and ten in the hot sun
Heat from the street burned the feet of the ladies
See how they run.
Verse 4
Ah ah ah ah, ah ah ah ah
Called down the lightnin'
By a mystical name
And the rainmaker called on the thunder
And then it suddenly began to rain.
Verse 5
Then the rainmaker passed his hat to the people
But the people all turned away
And the rainmaker's eyes and the Kansas skies
Well they both became a darker gray.
Verse 6
First day in August
Last rain was in May
When the rainmaker came to Kansas
In the middle of a dusty day.
Verse 7
The rainmaker smiled as he hitched up his wagon
And without a word he rode away
And the people of the town heard the sound of his laughter
And they knew the rain had come to stay.
Verse 8
Rain, rain, go away
Come again another day
Rain, rain, go away
Come again another day
Rain, rain, go away
Come again another day
Rain, rain, go away
Come again another day.
