Horn Of The Unicorn

Words and Music by Raccoon

as recorded on Road Kill

 

The chord progression to this song is:

        G, A, C, D

 

On a boat out in the sea

Stood a laughing unicorn with gossamer wings

On the shore about a mile or two away

The white knight rode is magic stallion away

He was bearing no gift for the lady in red

So the white knight took his silver sword to his head

 

I donít like the games that the kings in the castles play

When I work a day I want my dayís pay

Out on the highway I ainít got too many cares

When I feel like movin' I stick my thumb in the air

 

Rain, rain - For the pleasure or the pain - Rain, rain, rain, rain

Rain, rain - Am I ever gonna feel this way again?

Am I ever gonna feel this way again?

 

Iím just a melancholy man

Livin' with a guitar in my hand

It really doesnít matter how I feel

Iíll probably never taste another home cooked meal

Probably never taste another home cooked meal

 

Ainít that a shame? - Never really learned how to play that game

Ainít that a shame?

Ainít that a shame? - I bet you wish you could say the same

I bet you wish that you could say the same

 

Rain, rain - and the storm winds wail rain, rain, rain, rain

Rain, rain - you make it hard to find the trail

You make it kinda hard to find the trail

 

On a boat out in the sea stood a laughing unicorn

He was laughin' at me

On the shore about a mile or two away

A sad man hung his head as he began to pray

 

With the horn of the unicorn you hold your fate in your hand

So the horn of the unicorn

It was meant for God and not for man

It was meant for God and not for man

 

Rain, rain, rain - And the storm winds wail rain, rain, rain, rain

Rain, rain - You make it hard to find the trail

You make it kinda hard to find the trail

 

Rain, rain, rain - Thunder come and chase my pain away

Lightning make me see the light of day

Rain, rain - Thunder come and chase my pain away

Lightning make me see the light of day

Rain, rain - Thunder come and chase my pain away

Rain, rain - Thunder come and chase my pain away
