Inspired by the book "The Worst Hard Time" by Timothy Egan
Piano driven story about getting what you ask for


There are no stars out tonight, the crescent moon gives up her fight
Let the clouds declare a victory, maybe darkness will bring relief
The faithful fall on bended knees and beg the sky for mercy

Morning chases the clouds away; an angry sun conquers the day
It's a hard life out on the open plains selling cattle for the price of grain
The desperate cry out where the sky can see and ask for charity
Let it rain, let it pour, let the water flow, let the rivers roar
Let it rain, let it pour, let it rain for forty days once more
A warm wind blows from the east and south, kisses the cold air hard on the mouth
There is no denying the chemistry you can feel electricity
The angry go outside and shake their fists and order the sky to give in
If you ask you shall receive, you can pray or beg or stamp your feet
But Mother Nature is a fickle beast first it's famine then its feast
