Rushlow — Sweet Summer Rain lyrics

Three or four miles down a red dirt road
Lived a green-eyed girl and I used to go to see her
I'd pull up the drive and she'd jump in
And we'd head off down around the bend to the river
Find a perfect spot and throw a blanket down on the ground
Sit there talkin' till the sun went down about nothing
Then one hot day in June, the clouds rolled in right out of the blue
As we ran for cover, I could smell her perfume and that
[Chorus:]
Sweet (I still remember)
Sweet summer rain (sweet rain fallin' down on us)
Oh, that sweet (I still remember)
Sweet summer rain (sweet rain fallin' down on us)
We were jumpin' and runnin' and laughin' out loud
The sky opened up like the bottom fell out of heaven, yeah
We dove in the car, turned the radio on
Sat there soakin', singing along with Elton, "Bennie And The Jets"
She turned and looked my way
Those raindrops slowly runnin' down on her face
I reached out and kissed her
Well, I remember that taste of that
Sweet (I still remember)
Sweet summer rain (sweet rain fallin' down on us)
Oh, that sweet (I still remember)
Sweet summer rain (sweet rain fallin' down on us)
That sweet summer rain
It keeps blowin' through my mind
Even after all this time
I can't forget that moment we were falling
Just like that
Sweet (I still remember)
Sweet summer rain (sweet rain fallin' down on us)
Oh, that sweet (I still remember)
Sweet summer rain (sweet rain fallin' down on us)
Sweet (I still remember)
Sweet summer rain (sweet rain fallin' down on us)
Oh, that sweet (I still remember)
Sweet summer rain (sweet rain fallin' down on us)
I still remember
Sweet rain fallin' down on us
(Fade)
