Sally Jane
How did it end up this way
With our boxes packed
And not one word to say
The children play
As your car pulled away
I didn't realize 'til then
It was really goodbye
With your wheels on the gravel
I felt my heart strings unravel
As it started to rain
It started to rain
It started to rain
Forty days
It started to rain
The neighbors came
And they bought what remained
Of the life we built
With lovin', with laughter
Then my heart started sinking
'Cause I couldn't help thinking
Their fate would be the same
It started to rain
It started to rain
Forty days
It started to rain
It started to rain
