Lyrics
Singin' in the Rain

 


There are no rides that leave today out of Pine Ridge, South Dakota
What cars there are rust in the fields, they lie there down and broken
The depot's closed, boarded up, and the conductor's gone away
And at any rate, the only line to Pine Ridge went one way

Most days and nights, there's little to do except walk to the corner store
Bum a few dollars from a passerby, buy a bottle or maybe more
To dampen age-old visions that roll easy through my mind
And memories of promises, a broken dream so unkind

When all the hope is gone and there's nowhere left to turn
All that's been forgotten must now be relearned
When looking to horizons only brings around the tears and the pain,
Gotta keep on dancing, and oh, singin' in the rain

The last connection around these parts got severed in the night
When the big ole trucks came rolling in, and there was no one left to fight
They worked till dawn and when the town awoke and took a look around
They saw that while they slept it off, they tore the old drive-in down

So we hang around the gambling halls and the corner store and we think
About summertime now come and gone and where to get another drink
As the clouds roll in and the wind blows cold, I dream as if I might
Take a walk around in the evening rain, maybe leave by the morning light

When all the hope is gone and there's nowhere left to turn
All that's been forgotten must now be relearned
When looking to horizons only brings around the tears and the pain,
Gotta keep on dancing, and oh, singin' in the rain

There are no rides that leave today out of Pine Ridge, South Dakota
What cars there are rust in the fields, they lie there down and broken
The depot's closed, boarded up, and the conductor's gone away
And at any rate, the only line to Pine Ridge went one way

When all the hope is gone and there's nowhere left to turn
All that's been forgotten must now be relearned
When looking to horizons only brings around the tears and the pain,
Gotta keep on dancing, and oh, singin' in the rain
