The Storms Come (Capo 7) © Lightning Lucas, 2014

Intro: C, Dslid, smallG, smallF#, C, D, G

C, Dslid, smallG, smallF#, C, G x2
The Wise man built his house upon the rock,
and the rains they came down.
He built his house there because he knew he'd found solid ground,
and the storms come.

C, Dslid, smallG, smallF#, C, G
Yes the storms come, oh the storms come,
whether you built your house on the rock or the sand.
C, G, Dslid
You should've had a better plan if you built it on the sand,
C, G, C, G, C, G, Dslid
cuz the storms come.

Foolish man, he built his house, too.
What else was he gonna do, live in a shoe?
So what the only plot of land he could find,
was a piece of sand. Shouldn't have bought that one, cuz

The storms come, yes the storms come,
whether you built your house on the sand or the rock.
You're gonna be in for quite a shock if you didn't build it on the rock,
Cuz the storms come.

C, G, D
Store up your treasure somewhere, (so that it's not)/ (or it'll be) stored up somewhere else. x3

First Storms chorus, 'storms come' for awhile, then first chorus again!
Fade chord progression, end with Dslid

Thanks to Carmen Schrock-Hurst for the line 'Store up your treasure somewhere, so that it's not stored up somewhere else.'
