about

People in this country always go on about the bloody weather – love makes the world a sunnier place - there should be more of it about!

lyrics

G
On the weather forecast there’s an isobar chart
C
Yellow storm warning with the rain about to start
G D
And we’d all run for cover if we were even half smart
G
I’ll spare thought for those in peril on the sea
F A7
Biscay, Rockall, Digger & Cromarty
G Am D G
But there’s still 1000 millibars & a high above my heart

Chorus
G
Let the rain fall down on this old hick town,
C
Till the rats down the bottom of the drain get drowned
G D
And the puddles and the floods swallow up the sodden ground
G
Let the water wash the top of my head till it shines
C A7
Steaming up my shades till I’m nearly blind
G Am D G
Cos when I’m with you I got sunshine on my mind

V2
Outside the temperatures minus fifteen
I’m chipping at the ice inside the windscreen
But the wild winter weather just don’t bother me
Though in February’s chill everything looks dead
As long as we’re together, I got August in my head
I just need your loving & it’s 25 degrees

Chorus

Instrumental


Break
C G
There’s a big fat high & deep blue skies sitting over the Azores
C A7 D
But back here at home in more temperate zone the rain just pours & pours
C G
Your love everyday just takes me away to those tropical Atlantic shores
C Am C D
So let the gutters over run, I’ll just bask in the sun of love of the one I adore

Chorus
