Song of the Day – “More Than Rain” – Tom Waits

Tom Waits has appeared a number of times on both the NBC and CBS shows. I always felt like Dave “got” Tom, and allowed him free rein in what song to perform.

This video is both an interview and a song, with “More Than Rain” starting about four minutes in with the wheezing, broken-down organ.

It’s more than rain that falls on our parade tonight
it’s more than thunder it’s more than thunder
it’s more than a swindle this crooked card game
it’s more than sad times it’s more than sad times
none of our pockets are filled with gold
nobody’s caught the bouquet
there are no dead presidents we can fold
nothing is going our way
and it’s more than goodbye I have to say to you
it’s more than woe-be-gotten grey skies now
