Lyrics I'M PRAYING FOR RAIN IN CALIFORNIA
SO THE GRAPES CAN GROW
AND THEY CAN MAKE MORE WINE,
AN' I'M SITTING IN A HONKY
IN CHICAGO,
WITH A BROKEN HEART
AND A WOMAN ON MY MIND.

I MATCH THE MAN BEHIND THE BAR
FOR THE JUKEBOX
AND THE MUSIC TAKES ME BACK
TO TENNESSEE,
WHEN THEY ASK:
WHO'S THE FOOL
IN THE CORNER CRYING?
I SAY LITTLE OLE WINE DRINKER, ME.

I CAME HERE LAST WEEK
FROM DOWN IN NASHVILLE,
'CAUSE MY BABY LEFT
FOR FLORIDA ON A TRAIN,
I THOUGHT I'D GET A JOB
AND JUST FORGET HER,
BUT IN CHICAGO
A BROKEN HEART IS STILL THE SAME.

I MATCH THE MAN BEHIND THE BAR
FOR THE JUKEBOX
AND THE MUSIC TAKES ME BACK
TO TENNESSEE,
WHEN THEY ASK:
WHO'S THE FOOL
IN THE CORNER CRYING?
I SAY LITTLE OLE WINE DRINKER, ME.
