C
Just before the rain came down,
F
I took a trip to your home town.
C
I never should’ave tempted fate,
  G7
I reached your door a day to late, when
C
The greatest storm I’ve ever seen,
F
Tried to wash the whole world clean,
C
Knocked me to my knees to pray,
       G7
That it would wash my sins away.

CHORUS
F                          G7            C      / Em / Am
I never should’ave gone to California,
F                            G7                    C          / Em / Am
My friends said, You know we tried to warn ya.
F                     G7
But I was blind, I could not see,
C                                 Am
Sometimes you have to set things free,
F                                                  G7
Sometimes you have to let them fly away.

The neighbour said you went away,
Maybe you’ll be back one day.
Heard you had a lover’s fight,
Hoped that you would be alright.
I never said you fought with me, but,
It wasn’t very hard to see.
I turned away when the neighbour sighed,
And something deep inside me died.

CHORUS 

BRIDGE
                 F
And when I hit the road again that night,
C
I knew that we would be alright.
   Dm
Tomorrow is a brand new day
      G7
And who knows what will come our way?
      F
The more we live, the more we change,
      C
And love is never out of range
    Dm
So love be gentle. Love be kind.
               G7
I’m gonna leave my worries far behind.

INSTRUMENTAL BREAK & REPEAT CHORUS x2

CODA:
      F                           G7                   C    / Em / Am
And maybe they’ll come back one sunny day,
       F                           G7                   C    / Em / Am
Yes, maybe they’ll come back one sunny day.
