Box of Rain


by Grateful Dead


I:	( A - - - / Bm7/A - - A / - - - Asus4 / - - - - / x4 //)

Look out of any window, any morning, any evening, any day.
Maybe the sun is shining, birds are winging, no rain is fallin' from a heavy sky.

D - - - / Am - - - / Em - - - / C - - - / G - - - /    /
D - - - / Am - - - / Em - - - / G - - - / A - - - /    //

  C1a:	What do you want me to do, to do for you to see you through?
For this is all a dream we dreamed one afternoon long ago.

D - - - / G - - - / Am - - - / Em - / D - - - /     /
[a]
C - - - / D - - - / Am - - - / G - - - /      //

Walk out of any doorway, feel your way, feel your way like the day before.
Maybe you'll find direction, around some corner where it's been waitin' to meet you.

  C1b:	What do you want me to do, to watch for you while you're sleepin'?
Then please don't be surprised when you find me dreamin' too.
[b]
Am - - - / C - - - / G - - - / D - - - /      //

(Solo over Bridge and Intro)

Look into any eyes you find by you, you can see clear to another day.
Maybe been seen before, through other eyes on other days while goin' home.

 C1c:	What do you want me to do, to do for you to see you through?
It's all a dream we dreamed one afternoon long ago.
[c]
C - - - / Em - - - / D - - - / G - - - /    //

Walk into splintered sunlight, inch your way through dead dreams to another land.
Maybe you're tired and broken,
your tongue is twisted with words half spoken and thoughts unclear.

 C1b:	What do you want me to do, to do for you to see you through?
A box of rain will ease the pain and love will see you through.

 B:	Just a box of rain, wind and water, believe it if you need it, if you don't just pass it on.
Sun and shower, wind and rain, in and out the window like a moth before a flame.

G - - - /    / Am - - - / Em - - - / C - - - / A - - - / D - - - /     /
G - - - /    / Am - - - / Em - - - / C - - - / D - - - / Em - - - / A - - - /     /    /     //

 T:	And it's just a box of rain; I don't know who put it there;
Believe it if you need it or leave it if you dare.
And it's just a box of rain or a ribbon for your hair;
Such a long, long time to be gone and a short time to be there.
