Lyrics

Praying For Rain

Praying for rain to fall from the sky
Praying for rain to cover the dry
Parched earth to which he'd given his blood
Praying to see the hills turn green and the rivers flood

Old man Buck had a Hawke's Bay farm not far from Bay View town
In the family for eighty-odd years, handed down
From father to father, to eldest son to make a living on the land
But it had never been like this before, on his knees in the bottom-land

Praying for rain to fall from the sky
Praying for rain to cover the dry
Parched earth to which he'd given his blood
Praying to see the hills turn green and the rivers flood

The weatherman had a fancy word, Buck just called it drought
And the government sent a minister's aide to take a look around
The bills kept coming, the money didn't, the stock still had no feed
And in the house that his grandad built, Buck was on his knees

Praying for rain to fall from the sky
Praying for rain to cover the dry
Parched earth to which he'd given his blood
Praying to see the hills turn green and the rivers flood

Well, Buck had a meeting with the bank man
But that day the old man wasn't around
They found him hanging from the woolshed
And that night the heavens soaked the ground

Praying for rain to fall from the sky
Praying for rain to cover the dry
Parched earth to which he'd given his blood
Praying to see the hills turn green and the rivers flood

Praying for rain to fall from the sky
