She can’t do this, anymore
She bought a ticket west and left me staring down the storm
Now I’m sittin’ here, all alone
In an empty house that used to be a happy home
She said she needed sunshine
She had enough of clouds
I knew it wouldn’t take too long, for her to figure out.

It don’t rain in California
You won’t see a single storm cloud in the sky
It’s always clear, so there won’t be any tears
Leave you standin’ in the downpour trying to hide
It don’t rain in California, like it’s raining here tonight

I can’t do this, anymore
I hopped a plane and I found my way to the California shore
Now we sittin’ here, all alone
You knew that I was comin’, you sounded happy on the phone
I knew you needed sunshine,
It seems I brought the clouds
The thunder and the lightning seem to follow me around

It don’t rain in California
You won’t see a single storm cloud in the sky
It’s always clear, so there won’t be any tears
Leave you standin’ in the downpour trying to hide
It don’t rain in California, like it’s raining here tonight
It don’t rain in California, like it’s raining here tonight

“I went down to Cody’s house in Texas with my buddy Bearcat to spend a few days shooting guns, fishing, and writing songs. When Cody and I got around to actually writing instead of messing around outside, I asked him what the vibe of the new record would be. He told me it was gonna be traditional, 80’s/90’s style country.

He told me it was gonna be traditional, 80’s/90’s style country. I’d had the first verse and chorus for about 2 years, but didn’t know where to go with it. When I played what I had for him he really dug it. We came up with a second verse in a matter of minutes, fixed a few things I didn’t like about the chorus of the song, and that was that. This song, to me, is very Vern Gosdin-ish, with the theme of rain and the melody line and the chord structure. I’m just glad we FINALLY finished it and it’s getting out into the world.”
