Mission In The Rain
Jerry Garcia and Robert Hunter

F#M               C#            Em                 G
I turn and walk away, then I come around again,
D                          A             C#                   F#m
It looks as though tomorrow I'll do pretty much the same.
F#m                C#               Em
I must turn down your offer, but I'd like to ask a break,
D                                  A                C#           Fm-F#-B-C#-D-A
You know I'm ready to give everything for anything I take.

E                                             D     A                 D   A
Someone called my name, you know I turned around to see
E                                                     D                    E
It was midnight in the mission, but the bells were not for me
(use above chord pattern in all the rest except for refrain)

E          D-E          F#                D      E         A      G     D
Come again, walking along in the mission in the rain, come again
E          F#m          D                 A
Walking along in the mission in the rain!..

Ten years ago I walked this street,my dreams were riding tall,
Tonight I would be thankful, Lord, for any dream at all!

Some folks would be happy just to have one dream come true,
But everything you gather is just one more you can lose.

All the things I planned to do, I only did halfway,
Tomorrow will be Sunday, born of Saturday.

There's some satisfaction in the San Francisco rain,
No matter what comes down, the mission always looks the same.
