Right As Rain

I remember that second grade summer
Storm season in our home town
Sittin' in the cellar, tornado was a comin'
Didn't know where it was gonna touch down
Daddy read the bible by the Coleman gas light
How God sent a rainbow to Noah for a sign
The wind stopped blowing and it got real quiet
Momma turned to me and said

[Chorus]
Don't be afraid when you see dark clouds
Life grows sweeter when heaven pours down
It ain't always gonna be a sunny day
It'll be alright
Right as rain

Years passed like a quick spring shower
Had to find my way in this world
Huggin' mama goodbye took an hour
A grey sky day for her baby girl
Packin' up my dreams in a little red jeep
Her face was wet when she kissed me on the cheek
I heard the thunder and I didn't wanna leave
She squeezed my hand and said...

[Chorus]
Don't be afraid when you see dark clouds
Life grows sweeter when heaven pours down
It ain't always gonna be a sunny day
It'll be alright
Right as rain

Don't be afraid to live your life
Run barefoot laughing beneath the open sky
Life ain't always gonna be a sunny day
It'll be alright
Right as rain
It's gonna be alright
Right as rain

Song facts

"This song really hits home for me, and is probably the most personally narrative song of the bunch. Growing up in Oklahoma, we had lots of tornadoes and spent a lot of time in the cellar. It's about where I'm from, about being raised in a really small town in Oklahoma and being so close to my family and then having to leave home. I love that it mentions the red Jeep I drove when I first moved to Nashville. And it has the bluegrass country feel to it that I really enjoy doing." - Amber
