D 
In the early morning rain  
A 
with a  
G 
dollar in my  
D-G-D 
hand
 
With an  
G 
aching in my heart and my pockets full of  
D-G-D 
sand
 
I’m a long way from  
G 
home and I  
A 
miss my loved ones  
D-G-D 
so
 
In the early morning  
A 
rain with  
G 
no place to  
D-G-D 
go

Out on runway number nine a big seven-o-seven set to go
But I’m stuck here in the grass where the cold wind blows
Now the liquor tasted good and the women all were fast
Well there she goes, my friend, she’s rolling now at last

Hear the mighty engines roar, see the silver bird on high
She’s away and westward bound far above the clouds she’ll fly
Where the morning rain don’t fall and the sun always shines
She’ll be flying over my home in about three hours time

This old airport’s got me down it’s no earthly good to me
‘Cause I’m stuck here on the ground as cold and drunk as I can be
You can’t jump a jet plane like you can a freight train
So, I’d best be on my way in the early morning rain
