When It Rains It Pours

Album: This One's for You (2017)
Charted: 33
  • Sunday morning, man, she woke up fighting mad
    Bitching and moaning on and on 'bout the time I had
    And by Tuesday, you could say that girl was good as gone
    And then when Thursday came around, I was all alone

    So I went for a drive to clear my mind, ended up at a Shell on I-65

    Then I won a hundred bucks on a scratch off ticket
    Bought two twelve packs and a tank of gas with it
    She swore they were a waist of time, oh, but she was wrong
    I was caller number five on a radio station, won a four-day, three-night, beach vacation
    Deep sea, senorita, fishing down in Panama
    And I ain't gotta see my ex future mother-in-law anymore
    Oh lord, when it rains it pours

    Now she was sure real quick to up and apologize
    When she heard about my new found luck on that FM dial
    And it's crazy how, lately now, it just seems to come in waves
    What I thought was gonna be the death of me was my saving grace

    It's got me thinking that her leaving is the only logical reason

    That I got the last spot in the Hooter's parking lot
    And the waitress left her number on my check with a heart
    She picked up on the first ring when I gave her a call
    And I only spent five bucks at the Moose Club Raffle
    Won a used four-wheeler and three free passes
    For me and two of my buddies to play a round of golf
    And I ain't gotta see my ex future mother-in-law anymore
    Oh lord, when it rains it pours
    When it rains it pours

    And I've been on a hell of a redneck road for three weeks now
    And it all started on the day that she walked out

    Then I won a hundred bucks on a scratch off ticket
    Bought two twelve packs and a tank of gas with it
    She swore they were a waist of time, oh, but she was wrong
    I was caller number five on a radio station, won a four-day, three-night, beach vacation
    Deep sea, senorita, fishing down in Panama
    And I ain't gotta see my ex future mother-in-law anymore
    Oh lord, when it rains it pours
