Underneath the Maple -J. Rand 8/11

In the Rain
Playing my guitar
Underneath the maple
Raindrops sound
Louder than they are
Underneath the maple
Family either side of me
Hear the raindrops fall
In our tent cocoon and flannel jammies
Underneath the tall tree
   It’s gonna be a sweet night, just you wait and see
   Underneath the maple tree
   20 mile from nowhere, where I want to be
   Underneath the maple tree
Who will go
Venture to the car?
Sandwiches are waiting
Raindrops sound
Louder than they are
Will they be abating?
Draw straws
Ro-sham-bo
Tell me who will go
Peanut-butter
No matter what the weather
   It’s gonna be a sweet night, just you wait and see
   Underneath the maple tree
   20 mile from nowhere, where I want to be
   In your arms beneath the maple tree
All night long I hear the raindrops fall
I know that they are calling me
Safe and warm
Underneath the storm
Sleeping with my family
(repeat)
   It’s gonna be a sweet night, just you wait and see
   Underneath the maple tree
   20 mile from nowhere, where I want to be
   In each other’s arms beneath the maple tree
   20 mile from nowhere, where I want to be
   Holding on beneath the maple tree
