Purple Rain
Dwight Yoakam Lyrics


I never meant 2 cause u any sorrow
I never meant 2 cause u any pain
I only wanted 2 one time see u laughing
I only wanted 2 see u laughing in the purple rain

Purple rain purple rain
Purple rain purple rain
Purple rain purple rain
I only wanted 2 see u bathing in the purple rain
I never wanted 2 be your weekend lover
I only wanted 2 be some kind of friend
Baby I could never steal u from another
And it's such a shame our friendship forever had 2 end

Purple rain purple rain
Purple rain purple rain
Purple rain purple rain
I only wanted 2 see u underneath the purple rain

Honey I know, I know, I know times are changing
It's time we all reach out 4 something new and that means u 2

And u say u want a leader but u can't make up your mind
I think u better close it
And let me guide u 2 the purple rain

Purple rain purple rain
Purple rain purple rain
Purple rain purple rain

I only want 2 see u laughing in the purple rain

Purple rain purple rain
Purple rain purple rain
Purple rain purple rain

I only want 2 see u laughing in the purple rain

Purple rain purple rain
Purple rain purple rain
Purple rain purple rain

Purple Rain (bluegrass version)
Dwight Yoakam

Verse 1:]
I never meant to cause you any sorrow
I never meant to cause you any pain
I only wanted to one time to see you laughing
I only wanted to see you
Laughing in the purple rain

[Chorus:]
Purple rain, purple rain
Purple rain, purple rain
Purple rain, purple rain
I only wanted to see you
Bathing in the purple reign

[Verse 2:]
I never wanted to be your weekend lover
I only wanted to be some kind of friend
Baby, I could never steal you from another
It's such a shame our friendship had to end

[Chorus:]
Purple rain, purple rain
Purple rain, purple rain
Purple rain, purple rain
I only wanted to see you
Bathing in the purple reign

[Verse 3:]
Honey, I know, I know
I know times are changing
It's time we all reach out
For something new, that means you too
You say you want a leader
But you can't seem to make up your mind
I think you better close it
And let me guide you to the purple rain

[Chorus:]
Purple rain, purple rain
Purple rain, purple rain
Purple rain, purple rain
I only wanted to see you
Bathing in the purple reign

Dwight makes a habit of doing covers just perfect.

Donald Fewox

Every since I heard his tribute at Buck Owens funeral I have gained so much respect for this man.

John Betker

I did before but that just etched it in stone.

Arlene Ogles

He had a hard time trying not to cry.. I thought he did Buck Owens proud..

jauxdheni

ditto

Vicki Vestal

Buck was his mentor and the Bakersfield sound. Dwight never does a "bad" song. One of a kind and still sexy even though he's older now!

Dan Chak

That's how you do a cover song. Bring your own into it but keep the heart of the original.

Satisfaction Lawn Care

Bluegrass rendition. Dwight nailed it. RIP Prince.

Brenda McClain

Alter Stassfurter
