Lyrics - Rain in Tennessee

Rain in Tennessee
(from 2002's Apocalypso Now)

In the rain in Tennessee
Friday night remembering what used to be
Many miles and years ago
Once there was a place and time I used to know
But do we ever really know
The life before our eyes?

Seems like many lives I've led
Shared with friends and family some good some bad
Memories come visiting
Stirring up emotions deep inside of me
Thinking bout what used to be
And the rain in Tennessee

But if I try I close my eyes
And travel back against the tide
It makes me sad
But still I'm glad for all I've had

Guess I'll never get to see
Everything I ever wished for you and me
But we cannot command the fates
We must just be thankful for what's on our plates
As we wonder what awaits
Our life in Tennessee

In Tennessee In Tennessee
Itís all we've got
Just you and me
Let's make the best
And never rest until we just

Wake up to a sunny morn
When the storm and rainy clouds will all be gone
We will look into our eyes
With the look we see there we will realize
In the rain we've been baptized
Here in Tennessee
