  • When it rains, it pours, but you didn't even notice
    It ain't rainin' anymore, it's hard to breathe when all you know is
    The struggle of staying above the rising water line

    Well, the sky is finally open, the rain and wind stopped blowin'
    But you're stuck out in the same ol' storm again
    You hold tight to your umbrella, well, darlin' I'm just tryin' to tell ya
    That there's always been a rainbow hangin' over your head

    If you could see what I see, you'd be blinded by the colors
    Yellow, red, and orange, and green, and at least a million others
    So tie up the boat, take off your coat, and take a look around

    'Cause the sky is finally open, the rain and wind stopped blown'
    But you're stuck out in the same ol' storm again
    You hold tight to your umbrella, well, darlin' I'm just tryin' to tell ya
    That there's always been a rainbow hangin' over your head

    Oh, tie up the boat, take off your coat, and take a look around
    Everything is alright now
    'Cause the sky has finally opened, the rain and wind stopped blowin'
    But you're stuck out in the same ol' storm again
    Let go of your umbrella, 'cause darlin', I'm just tryin' to tell ya
    That there's always been a rainbow hangin' over your head
    Yeah, there's always been a rainbow hangin' over your head

    It'll all be alright Writer/s: Kacey Lee Musgraves, Natalie Hemby, Shane L McAnally

  • D.p. from IndianapolisI heard H.E.R. recently say that (paraphrasing) if you can perform a song with piano or guitar and it holds its own,
    its a hit. This definitely qualifies.
    Beautiful Kacey! Just Beautiful! Thank you
