Dream last night about Ali Baba
With the forty thieves
Tom, Tom,
Rain falling from the skies
Like lonely tears through misty eyes
Rain streaming down my face
Brings memories my heart cannot erase

Here alone
when de rocks in dis mountain turn to gol'

John Henry said to his shaker
"Nigger, why don' you sing?
I'm throwin' twelve poun's from my hips on down
a second-hand Nova from a Cuban Chinese
And dyed his hair in the bathroom of a Texaco
With a pawnshop radio, quarter past four
He left for Waukegan
let him lie for a very long time,
Till the rains from heaven did fall,
And little Sir John sprung up his head,
And so amazed them all.

They've let
lie for a very long time, 'til the rains from heaven did fall
And little Sir John sprung up his head and so amazed them all
They've let him stand 'til
lie for a very long time, 'til the rains from heaven did fall
And little Sir John sprung up his head and so amazed them all
They've let him stand 'til
him lie for a very long time,
˜Till the rains from heaven did fall,
And little Sir John sprung up his head,
And so amazed them all.

They've let
a second-hand Nova from a Cuban Chinese
And dyed his hair in the bathroom of a Texaco
With a pawnshop radio, quarter past four
He left for Waukegan
And they wandered in 
From the city of St. John 
Without a dime 
Wearing coats that shined 
Both red and green
Colors from their sunny island

Dream last night about Ali Baba
With the forty thieves
Tom, Tom,
Yeah! Wow!
There's so much to learn!

The Sun came from a cave
And it made the clouds go by
(Hi!)
The clouds had a conference
And rain fell from the sky
of thunder, the lightning appeared clear
Was a sign from the Heavens, more rain would soon be near
Uncontrollable thirst, eyes affixed to the sky
As we wait
Rain falling from the skies
Like lonely tears through misty eyes
Rain streaming down my face
Brings memories my heart cannot erase

Here alone
him lie for a very long time,
˜Till the rains from heaven did fall,
And little Sir John sprung up his head,
And so amazed them all.

They've let
rain was teardrops for the angels all cried
If love can be perfect ours must have been
But perfection is always destroyed by men
The rain whispered
rain was teardrops for the angels all cried

If love can be perfect ours must have been
But perfection is always destroyed by men
The rain whispered
I heard the thunder
So I braced for the rain
I tried to get out from under
But all was in vain

There's no way to stop it from pouring
Buckets
the whistle of a long black train
Dance in the pouring rain
I'm alive like a lonely note from John Coltrane
Run like its a getaway
Say those things that you
teetered in a john boat
The town had gathered round the soldier boy carried home

Carried home

The broken window and the pretty blue sky
And cold
feel a long way from the hills of San Salvador
Where the sky is ripped open and the rain pours
Through a gaping wound, pelting the women and children
Only love
Can make it rain
The way the beach is kissed by the sea
Only love
Can make it rain
Like the sweat of lovers
Laying in the fields.
He sat down on the bank and wrote this four line refrain

And I recall that song by John Dillon James


Well, I got my ticket for the ride in the sky
