More songs by Burt Bacharach

This file is part of a collection that (moreso than the rest of the site) are not meant to be detailed or accurate transcriptions of the original recordings. They're just some simple chord charts that I made for my own use, some of them my own arrangements.

Transposed from original key of F to D

D                           Dmaj7
Raindrops are fallin' on my head
    D7                               Gmaj7
And just like the guy whose feet are too big for his
F#m7 B7               F#m7 B7
bed, Nothin' seems to fit, Those
Em7                         %                       A4
raindrops are fallin' on my head, they keep fallin'

   A4  A    D                          Dmaj7
So I   just did me some talkin' to the sun
And I said I didn't like the way he got things done
Sleepin' on the job
Those raindrops are fallin' on my head, they keep fallin'

        A4      A   D       A
    But there's one thing I know
   (G#) G                 A               F#m7
    The blues they send to meet me won't defeat me
       %                  B7              Em7
    It won't be long 'til happiness steps up to greet me
       G/A  A             G/A  A

Raindrops keep fallin' on my head
But that doesn't mean my eyes will soon be turnin' red
Crying's not for me
'Cause I'm never gonna stop the rain by complainin'

  A4    A   D  Dmaj7  Em
Because I'm free-------
          A        Dmaj7  Cmaj7
Nothing's worryin' me
