Will you comfort me in my time of need?
Can you take away the pain of a hurtful deed?
'Cause when we need it most, there's no rain at all
And dust just settles right there on the feed

Will you say to me a little rain's gonna come?
When the sky can't offer none to me
I will come for you when my days are through
And I'll let your smile just off and carry me

'Cause when the calm comes down
I'll take the truck on into town
And buy whatever we can't seem to grow
I work these hands till they bleed
'Cause I got mouths to feed
I got fifteen dollars hid above the stove

Will you say to me a little rain's gonna come?
When the sky can't offer none to me
And I will come for you when my days are through
I'll let your smile just off and carry me

'Cause it ain't like it was on back in those days
When everyone would offer up their hand
These old bones are worn, I've grown tiresome
And I know my time is surely gonna come

Will you comfort me in my time of need?
Can you take away the pain and hurtful deeds?
I will come for you when my days are through
And I'll let your smile just off and carry me

Lord, we married young and stayed where we came from
And gave those children everything we had
Will you stay with me in my time of need?
It seems we had such little time for us

Will you say to me a little rain's gonna come?
When the sky can't offer none to me
And I will come for you when my days are through
And I'll let your smile just off and carry me
