Early Morning Rain
capo on 4nd fret
With Gordon Lightfoot's permission, I have made slight changes in the lyrics.


        (Introduction)
 Dm       C       Dm       C

C                           Em  Dm          G               C
In the early mornin' rain,   with a dollar in my hand.
                                Dm    G                                     C
With an aching in my heart,    and my pockets full of sand.
                              Dm     G                                        C
I'm a long way from home,    and I miss my loved ones so.
C                         Em  Dm      G               C
In the early mornin' rain,   with no place to go.

Out on runway number nine, big seven-o-seven set to go.
But I'm stuck here in the grass where the cold wind blows.
No the weather wasn’t good, still the time went fast.
Well now there she goes my friend, well she's rolling down at last.

Hear the mighty engines roar, see the silver wing on high.
She's away and westward bound, far above the clouds she'll fly.
Where the mornin' rain don't fall and the sun always shining.
She'll be flying o'er my home in about three hours time.

         (Bridge)
C     Em     Dm    G    C       C    Dm    G     C

C                                   Em   Dm                  G                  C
This old airport's got me down, she ain’t no earthly good to me.
Cause I'm stuck here on the ground, as cold and bumbed as I can be.
You can't jump a jet plane like you can a freight train.
So I'd best be on my way in the early mornin' rain.
C                                 Dm    G                                C
No you can't jump a jet plane, like you can a freight train.
C                           Em  Dm       G                  C
So I'd best be on my way in the early mornin' rain
C                            Dm  G                            C      C    C    C
 So I'd best be on my way in the early mornin' rain
