EARLY MORNING RAIN as recorded by Eva Cassidy
From the album Imagine, released in 2002
Written by Gordon Lightfoot
Transcribed by T-rev www.t-rev.net

Capoed at the 5th fret

INTRO:  G     C/G   D/F#  C2    G

             /B  /C   D    D/A              C2           G  C/G  G5
 In the early morning rain . . . . . With a dollar in my hand
                     Am      C/B  C         C2              G  C/G  G5
 And an achin' in my heart . . . . . And my pockets full of sand
                     Am      C/B  C        C2                 G  C/G  G5
 I'm a long way from home . . . . .  And I miss my loved ones so
             /B  /C   D    D/A            C2          G  C/G  G5
 In the early morning rain . . . . . With no place to go

 Out on runway number nine . . . . . Big seven-o-seven set to go
 But I'm out here on the ground . .  Where the cold winds blow
 You can't jump a jet plane . . . .  Like you can a freight train
 So I'd best be on my way . . . . .  In the early morning rain

INTERLUDE:  D/F#  %     C2    %     G     C/G   G5    %
            Am    C/B   C*    %     G     C/G   G5    %
            Am    C/B   C*    %     G     C/G   G5    % /B /C
            D      D/A  C2    %     G     C/G   G5    %

 Hear the mighty engines roar . . .  See the silver bird on high
 She's away and westward bound . . . Far above my home she'll fly
 Where the mornin' rain don't fall . And the sun always shines
 She'll be flyin' past my home . . . In about three hours' time

 In the early morning rain . . . . . With a dollar in my hand
 And an achin' in my heart . . . . . And my pockets full of sand
 I'm a long way from home . . . . .  And I miss my loved ones so
 In the early morning rain . . . . . With no place to go

 In the early morning rain . . . . . With no place to go

OUTRO:  G     C/G   D/F#  C2
        G     Am    D/F#  C2    G5*

Capoed at the 3rd fret

INTRO:  G         Bm        Am  D7/F# G   Gsus4 G

                      Bm        Am          D7/F#        G   Gsus4 G
 In the early morning rain . . . . . With a dollar in my hand
                     Am         D7/F#                       G   Gsus4 G
 And an achin' in my heart . . . . . And my pockets full of sand
                     Am         D7/F#                         G   Gsus4 G
 I'm a long way from home . . . . .  And I miss my loved ones so
                      Bm        Am        D7/F#       G   Gsus4 G
 In the early morning rain . . . . . With no place to go

 Out on runway number nine . . . . . Big seven-o-seven set to go
 But I'm out here on the grass . . . Where the pavement never grows
 Well the liquor tasted good . . . . And the women all were fast
 There she goes my friend . . . . .  She's rollin' down at last

 Hear the mighty engine roar . . . . See the silver wing on high
 She's away and westward bound . . . Far above the clouds she'll fly
 Where the mornin' rain don't fall . And the sun always shines
 She'll be flyin' o'er my home . . . In about three hours' time

 This old airport's got me down . .  It's no earthly good to me
'Cause I'm stuck here on the ground  As cold and drunk as I might be
 You can't jump a jet plane . . . .  Like you can a freight train
 So I'd best be on my way . . . . .  In the early morning rain

                      Am         D7/F#                    G   Gsus4 G
 So I'd best be on my way . . . . .  In the early morning rain

 And I'm stuck here on the ground . As cold and drunk as I can be
 You can't jump a jet plane . . . . Like you can a freight train
 So I best be on my way . . . . . . In the early morning rain

REPEAT SHORT INTERLUDE

 You can't jump a jet plane . . . . Like you can a freight train
 So I best be on my way . . . . . . In the early morning rain

REPEAT INTRO
