Have You Ever Seen the Rain?

Recommended Posts

My Ben Harper Pandora channel just cued up this tune! :D

 

Someone told me long ago theres a calm before the storm,

I know; its been comin for some time.

When its over, so they say, itll rain a sunny day,

I know; shinin down like water.

 

Chorus:

I want to know, have you ever seen the rain?

I want to know, have you ever seen the rain

Comin down on a sunny day?

 

Yesterday, and days before, sun is cold and rain is hard,

I know; been that way for all my time.

til forever, on it goes through the circle, fast and slow,

I know; it cant stop, I wonder.

 

Chorus

Yeah!

another classic imo. better??? i don't know. i do like you're thinking of digging deeper off their repretoire. i do like his emothion alot in the chorus of seen the rain. just sounds like he's bleeding inside and needs to get it out.

While I'm not going to disagree with anything you've said about "...Rain". As a matter of fact, it's a beautiful song without debate and not necessary to compare it to anything else.

 

"Someday..." has such a resigned anger-turned-to-sadness tone in his vocals. Mad at his father, his mother, his wife, his kids, himself.... it really resonates every time I hear it.

Solid. I like Willie and the Poor Boys because you can't f*cking argue with any album that is closed by "Effigy."
