October Rain

The geese fly south
In a V formation
They never leave any doubt
They know their destination
Year after year
Their mission is clear
Keep on moving
Go far from here

October rain
Washes away the strain
October rain
Ahead of the game
October Rain
In California
An omen for the future
And our patience rewarded

Fire season hangs
On the edge of disaster
The dry summer heat
Burns ever faster
Early water from the sky
Is a welcome blessing
Autumn winks at winter
Without second guessing

October rain
Washes away the strain
October rain
Life to sustain
October rain
In California
An omen for the future
And our patience rewarded

Reservoirs are low
And the stakes are high
So say a little prayer
For a cloudy sky
The sun won't shine
Forever in silence
It takes a lot of rain
To bring about the balance

October rain
Washes away the strain
October rain
Life to sustain
October rain
In California
An omen for the future
And our patience rewarded
