Dancing In The Rain (GSB)


Get Flash to see this player.

Description
I posted a solo version of this song here but was always intending to get the "Great South Band" together to wrap an arrangement round it.

It came together seamlessly, as expected. Working with Neil and Philip is an absolute pleasure.

Peter Bowen - music and lyrics, lead vocal, harmony vocals, PRS acoustic guitar, mix advice.
Philip Gardner (Philip18) - electric guitar and mandolin.
Neil Porter (jiguma) - Logic Pro Drummer, bass, B3, mix and master.

Thanks, guys.

Regards,

Peter.

Lyrics
Dancing In The Rain - Peter Bowen (March 2017) CAPO 2

[D] [A] [G] [A]

[D] The storm clouds of [A] history
[G] Steal out of the [A] night
[D] They cry early-[A]warning
[G] Of a drift to the [A] right
[G] For whom the bell [A] tolls?
[Bm] We’re all feeling the [C] strain
[D] I’d rather go [A] dancing in the [G] rain [D]

[D] All the king’s [A] horses
[G] And twelve angry [A] men
[D] Can’t put all the [A] false facts
[G] Together [A] again
[G] A threepenny [A] opera
[Bm] Is sung in re[C]frain
[D] I’d rather be [A] dancing in the [G] rain [D]

[Em7] Beggar-man, [A7] thief
[F#7] Can’t get no re[Bm]lief
[C] They fell by the [G] wayside
Throughout the [A] campaign
[Em7] The rich without [A7] wisdom,
[F#7] Drown in their cham[Bm]pagne
[C] Why don’t they try [G] dancing in the [A] rain?

[D] The ghost ship of [A] state
[G] Adrift in the [A] night
[D] Needs to chart a new [A] course
[G] Step into the [A] light
[G] It doesn’t [A] matter
[Bm] If it spoils their pa[C]rade
[D] Let’s all try [A] dancing in the [G] rain [D]

[Em7] No wall can [A7] divide us
[F#7] We’re all one and the [Bm] same
[C] Why don't we go [G] dancing in the [A] rain…

Dancing in the rain seems a much better option than anything else on the table.

Really nice Peter and a fine production with Phil and Neil.

Cheers

If we dance in the rain it'll be easier to hide our tears from out totalitarian masters of both the right and the extreme left.

Beautiful song gents. Simply beautiful.

Be well!

Ha ha...
"WWR"---an expression I still use now and again. But only with my wife...the reference is lost on my sons and grandchildren, as well as not a few of my wider (and invariably younger)acquaintances! Sigh...

Nice one Peter
This was a really nice song to play around with. Solid performances by Peter and Philip, and a memorable melody - the fact that the lyrics really resonated with me didn't hurt either.
Thanks for the invite Peter.

Thanks, Vic. Seeing three grown men all try to lead is a real sight :-) And I agree with you, Neil and Philip did serve the song wonderfully. Take care.

Dancing Through the Years
Very subtle lyrics here Peter but I think I got the drift and couldn't agree more. It makes far more sense to go dancing in the rain than to try and make sense of what is happening out there. It almost feels to me like history is recycling into the 60's again. This could be a more melodic, softer, gentler version of Dylan's "When The Ship Comes In".
Strangely enough I have been working on writing a song called Playing With the Rain but mine is just about hearing the rain and being inspired to play guitar along with it.

Musical synergy
Thanks, Dean. It is great to be able to call on Philip and Neil to take my songs to another level. And, yes, we seem to have a musical synergy that can produce the goods. Take care.
