Oh, I wish it would rain, it's gonna wash my face clean
I wanna find some dark cloud to hide in here
Oh, love and a memory sparkle like diamonds
When the diamonds fall they burn like tears
When the diamonds fall they burn like tears

Once I had a love from the Georgia Pans who only cared for me
I want to find that love of twenty-two here at thirty-three
I've got a heart on my right and one on my left, it neither suits my needs
No, the one I love is way out West and he never will need me

So I wish it would rain and gonna wash my face clean
I want to find some dark cloud to hide in here
Oh, love and a memory sparkle like diamonds
When the diamonds fall they burn like tears
When the diamonds fall they burn like tears

Gonna pack up my two-step shoes
And head for the Gulf Coast plains
I wanna walk the streets of my own home town
Where everybody knows my name

I want to ride a ways down to Galveston
When the hurricanes blow in
'Cause that Gulf Coast water tastes sweet as wine
When your heart's rolling home in the wind

And I wish it would rain and gonna wash my face clean
I wanna find some dark cloud to hide in here
Oh, love and a memory sparkle like diamonds

When the diamonds fall they burn like tears
When the diamonds fall they burn like tears
When the diamonds fall they burn like a tear
