lyrics

Before The Autumn Rains (Abe Loomis)

Before the autumn rains, I want to buy you a ring
I want to holler your name, in every song I sing
I want to be your man, sure as red wine stains
Before the autumn rains

Before the winter snows, I want to build you a home
Four solid walls – a roof to keep you warm
I want to sit by a fire, when the daylight goes
Before the winter snows

inst break

Before the springtime flowers, I want to buy you a goat
I’ll leave him out in the yard on a line like a hillbilly love note
We’ll bring him sweet clover, and sit and talk for hours
Before the springtime flowers

inst break

Before the summer heat, I want to make you my wife
I want to take your hand, and hold it for the rest of my life
I want to go out walking, and flatten the early wheat
Before the summer heat

inst break

Before the autumn rains, I want to buy you a ring
I want to holler your name, in every song I sing
I want to be your man, sure as red wine stains
Before the autumn rains
