​A Little Rain

This song is by Tom Waits and appears on the album Bone Machine (1992).

Where the Iceman's mule is parked outside the bar
Where a man with missing fingers plays a strange guitar
And the German dwarf dances the butcher's son
And tonight a little rain never hurt no one

Where they're dancing on the roof and the ceiling's coming down
And I sleep with my shovel and my leather gloves
And a little trouble makes it worth the going
And a little rain never hurt no one

Oh, the world is round and so I'll go around
You must risk something that matters
Oh, my hands are strong, I'll take any man here
If it's worth the going, it's worth the ride

She was 15 years old and she'd never seen the ocean
She climbed into a van with a vagabond
And the last thing she said was "I love you, mom"
And a little rain never hurt no one

And a little rain never hurt no one
