Chords and lyrics for Early Morning Rain by Gordon Lightfoot

D 
 
G 
 
A 
 
G 
 
D 
 
G 
 
D 
 
In the early morning  
A 
rain with a  
G 
dollar in my  
D 
hand
G 
D 
 
With an aching in my  
G 
heart and my pockets full of  
D 
sand
G 
D 
 
I’m a long way from  
G 
home 
 
 
A 
and I miss my loved ones  
D 
so
G 
D 
 
In the early morning  
A 
rain 
 
 
G 
with no place to  
D 
go
G 
D 
 
Out on runway number  
A 
nine, big  
G 
seven-o-seven set to  
D 
go
G 
D 
 
But I’m stuck here in the  
G 
grass with a pain that everg
D 
rows
G 
D 
 
Now the liquor tasted  
G 
good 
 
 
A 
and the women all were  
D 
fast
G 
D 
 
Well now there she goes my  
A 
friend, 
 
 
G 
she’s a-rolling down at  
D 
last
G 
D 
 
Hear the mighty engines  
A 
roar, see the  
G 
silver wing on  
D 
high
G 
D 
 
She’s away and westward  
G 
bound, far above the clouds she’ll  
D 
fly
G 
D 
 
Where the morning rain don’t  
G 
fall and the  
A 
sun always  
D 
shines
G 
D 
 
She’ll be flying over my  
A 
home in  
G 
about three hours  
D 
time
G 
D 
 
This old airport’s got me  
A 
down, it’s no  
G 
earthly good to  
D 
me
G 
D 
 
‘Cause I’m stuck here on the  
G 
ground, as cold and drunk as I can  
D 
be
G 
D 
 
You can’t jump a jet  
G 
plane like you  
A 
can a freight  
D 
train
G 
D 
 
So I’d best be on my  
A 
way in the  
G 
early morning  
D 
rain 
 
 
G 
D
