I Wish It Would Rain

Turnin' tricks on Sunset, twenty bucks a pop
Some out of town old business man or an undercover cop
I'm living with that virus flowing way down in my viens
I wish it would rain

I know you've heard my story, or seen me on the street
Just another cracker jigalo dressed up like trick or treat
Now you may want to judge me or treat me with distain
I wish it would rain

Memphis, Texas, Houston, Tennessee
I'm just so turned around I don't know where I wanna be
This California desert is driving me insane
Oh, I wish it would rain

So I squandered my resistance taking any kind of drug
Oh, I'd smoke or shoot or eat it I'd drink it from a jug
And I offer no excuses for your sympathies to gain
I wish it would rain

And everybody knows me as the kid
I've made it seven years and still I don't know how I did
I come from a long line of living love in vain
Oh, I wish it would rain

So I pray to Mother Mary I've even seen a priest
When the angels come to get me I know I'll be released
I'll leave this mean old desert bound for Memphis on a train
I wish it would rain
Oh, I wish it would rain
