"The roof of the Armadillo didn't leak,
only a little," said John,
leaning up against a tree.
"And if the band on stage was cooking
and I'd been doing some hot-footing,
getting wet sure never bothered me."
Standing in the Texas rain
you could almost feel your heart change.
It'll give you a little relief
from that hot hot Texas heat
and when you feel it coming down
you don't need to wonder why
you want to thank the sky for the Texas rain.
Traveling dusty and dirty
through the hills so hot and thirsty,
I felt a few drops and that was all.
And though I've done some things I shouldn't,
don't you think I wouldn't know enough
to come in when it starts to fall?
Because standing in the Texas rain...
A woman with a southern accent
leaning over and laughing,
giving me a taste of that Texas style.
We heard the rain fall together
from underneath a lean-to shelter.
I remember a cool breeze making us smile.
Standing in the Texas rain...
