Christmas In The Rain

by The Ragged Flags

1.
Hang out the lights and put up the tree We’ve waited and planned so expectantly But everyone sometime Spends Christmas in the rain You know it’s a season that’s hard for some The skies may be grey but our hearts are warm So hold onto each other This Christmas in the rain It’s gonna rain my love But Christmas Day has come We’re heading home It’s gonna rain my dear But I will hold you near ‘Til winter’s gone Think of the faces you don’t see there At everyone’s table stand empty chairs But they’ll live in our memories Each Christmas in the rain These are the thoughts that are bittersweet The young ones that they had no chance to meet But we sing out their stories At Christmas in the rain These are the days of our Christmas cheer To lay down the burdens we’ve borne all year As we gather together This Christmas in the rain Each day’s a gift that you give in kind Together the weather we’ll pay no mind ‘Cause everyone sometime Spends Christmas in the rain Yes everyone sometime Spends Christmas in the rain Yes everyone sometime Spends Christmas in the rain

about

This is it! The big One-Oh! The tenth Ragged Flags Christmas original in a row. A full decade! That's the fully completed set. Thanks for everyone who's been listening along for the last ten years as we conducted this ridiculous experiment. It's been a ride.

We're *definitely* taking next year - and all the subsequent ones - off!

The full collection of this and all previous Ragged Flags Christmas songs can be found on the RAGGED CHRISTMAS CRACKERS compilation! Also includes a brand new *eleventh* Christmas song 'Blue Baubles' as a bonus track.
