365 Days of Poetry: Day One-Hundred and Ninety-Nine

Because poems are songs, and vice versa. My first attempt at christian type music.

Stop the Rain
Lyrics/Chords-Jennifer Fiddes
Lead/Inspiration-Jack Cohoon

V-[Em G D (Am C)]
Dreaming doesn’t come so much
and Lord I know you’re hard to touch
but it’s been a long hard year.
Take the pain, and take the fear.

Counting sheep but nothing works.
Think of Noah and his perks.
It must have been so hard to see
the rain wash away the trees.

C-[G D/F# Cadd9 (Am C)]
Come to me and show the way.
I often cannot face these days.
I know you are too real to touch
but Lord I never ask for much.
And if you can take hold of me
a guiding light, eternity.
I’ll face the pain and make the change,
just show me how to stop the rain.

V-[Em G D (Am C)]
Bless me with the strength to grieve
and be what you meant for me.
The sun will rise, I know your face
and in the light I find your grace.

Bring the sunlight back, the dreams.
I am a child, I need your seams.
And I will wander through this life
praising you throughout the night.

C-[G D/F# Cadd9 (Am C)]
Come to me and show the way.
I often cannot face these days.
I know you are too real to touch
but Lord I never ask for much.
And if you can take hold of me
a guiding light, eternity.
I’ll face the pain and make the change,
just show me how to stop the rain.

V-[Em G D (Am C)]
Lead Break

C-[G D/F# Cadd9 (Am C)]
Come to me and show the way.
I often cannot face these days.
I know you are too real to touch
but Lord I never ask for much.
And if you can take hold of me
a guiding light, eternity.
I’ll face the pain and make the change,
just show me how to stop the rain.

O-[Em G D (Am C)]
Jam on Verse progression till end.
