Lyrics

ALL SHE KNOWS IS RAIN

(Lisa Carver/Cheley Tackett/Robert K. Wolf)

 

 Six years old watchin’ cartoons in a trailer reeks of cigarettes

Mama’s long gone and Daddy’s out cold on his cloud of barbiturates

And she’s right at home all alone

Ain’t no use to cry

 

When all you’ve ever known

Is broken glass & dust

You learn to say hello

But goodbye’s all you trust

How’s she s’posed to know not to run away

When all she knows is rain

 

Seventeen she learned fast slingin’ hash ain’t no ticket out

She rented smiles and slept her way right out of East Youngstown

But she pulls a storm

And makes it pour everywhere she goes

 

(Repeat Chorus)

 

I held the girl behind the smile we were sunshine for awhile

But she ain’t wired that way

 

Oooooohhhh

Ohhhhhhhhh

All She Knows Is Rain

(Carver/Tackett/Wolf 3/18/14)

 

Six years old watchin’ cartoons in a trailer reeks of cigarettes

Mama’s long gone and Daddy’s out cold on his cloud of barbiturates

And she’s right at home all alone

Ain’t no use to cry

 

When all you’ve ever known

Is broken glass & dust

You learn to say hello

But goodbye’s all you trust

How’s she s’posed to know not to run away

When all she knows is rain

 

Seventeen she learned fast slingin’ hash ain’t no ticket out

She rented smiles and slept her way right out of East Youngstown

But she pulls a storm

And makes it pour everywhere she goes

 

When all you’ve ever known

Is broken glass & dust

You learn to say hello

But goodbye’s all you trust

How’s she s’posed to know not to run away

When all she knows is rain

 

I held the girl behind the smile we were sunshine for awhile

But she ain’t wired that way

 

Oooooohhhh

Ohhhhhhhhh

(Repeat Chorus)
