  The seventy sevens
  'the Rain kept falling in love'
  from 'brainstorm' (or as it was supposed to be called ' pray naked')
   
  There are two guitars on the track one plays the rhythm bits 
  and another plays the 'riffs' or mini solos 
  The second guitar seems to be a clean strat but I can't 
  figure out what the first is . 
 
  Verse chords :(very syncopated listen to cd to get it right)
  | Am | F | C | G | (play it round and round)
  They're too syncopated for me to put them along with the text. Sorry!
  
 
  
  VERSE 1
     
  I curse the sun in the summer burns me up till I'm dry 
  I curse the cold in the winter but I don't really mind 
  If they asked any money I would give any money 
  To the sun and the wind and the rain to be kind 
   
  VERSE 2
  Prayed the rain to keep up but it kept falling down ( play riff A)
  Washed my hands of it all but its all over town (play riff B then riff B')
  I would give any money to see the sky get sunny ( end of riff B')
  But let the rain really pour salt my tears let me drown (play riff C)
  
  Riff A :
  e|----RB--------------------------|
  B|----6\5---------H-P-P------H-P--|
  G|---------7-5---4-5-4-0----2-4-2-|

  CHORUS
  
  Raaain onnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnn
         C                F
  Raaain onnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnn
         G                Am
  Raaain onnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnn
         C                F
  Raaain on  oh the rain kept falling in love
         G            F                  Am
 
  Now play this riff over verse chords
        Am  F       C    G
  e|--------------------------|
  B|----5---6-------5----3----|
  G|----5---5-------5----4----|
  D|--------------------------|
  
  play three times (I think)
 
  VERSE 3
  Can the dirt in the ground sprout a seed all alone ?
  Can the dirt in my heart go away on its own ? (riff B' but silence bar 2 or 4)
  If you ask me for money I would give you the money
  To make the rain wash the stain take my shame and go home 
  
  CHORUS AD LIB
  
  
  this transcription was done by Mark Morrison B. 
  I think this is one of my favorite cuts of the 'Pray naked' cd
  (with 'phony eyes' 'woody' and 'self made trap')
  If you want to add something correct the lyrics just e mail me
  and I'll try to get it out 
  also check out the other 77s transcription on the ccm page
  Is there any 77s fan out there who is going to start an unofficial
  (or officaial ) 77 s Home Page ? Is there one that exists already?
  Please let me know if you can 
  Thanks
