      About "Not A Drop Of Rain"

      Lyrics for Robert Earl Keen - "Not A Drop Of Rain"

      Streets are almost empty, shops are closed down
      There's not a soul left in the bar to tell my troubles to
      Think I'll walk down to the river that runs just south of town
      I hate like hell when there ain't nothin' left to do
      But stand beneath the river bridge and listen for the train
      It's been a long hot summer, not a drop of rain

      I broke down in December
      I headed for the coast
      I thought the wind and water would elevate my mind
      I surfaced in the springtime feelin' like a ghost
      Missin' more than ever the things I left behind
      Now I'm standin' on this riverbank and still cannot explain
      It's been a long hot summer, not a drop of rain
      My bag is full of letters unopened and unread
      I'm sure they'd tell the story of worry and of form
      My heart is beating heavy with all we left unsaid
      I swear to you I never meant you any harm
      But sacrifice and compromise could never stand the strain
      It's been a long hot summer, not a drop of rain

      Tonight I'll close my eyes again and try to see your face
      And listen for your voice to tell me it's alright to sleep
      Convince myself I'll wake up in another time and place
      Knowin' all the while that it's a promise I can't keep
      A string of broken promises, another link of chain
      It's been a long hot summer, not a drop of rain

      The children on the playground, the lovers in the shade
      Remind me of a life and time that feels more like a dream
      When the sound of love and laughter was the music that we played
      As we lay beside the waters of a never ending stream
      Now the stream has gone to hiding, the dream lives on in vain
      It's been a long hot summer, not a drop of rain

      The clouds are building slowly on the skyline to the east
      The wind and dust are dancing like the devil across the lake
      I could try to find a bottle or try to find a priest
      Salvation won't be traveling either road I take
      So I turn my collar to the wind that echoes this refrain
      It's been a long hot summer, not a drop of rain
