Buckets of Rain Lyrics

Buckets of rain

Buckets of tears

Got all them buckets coming out of my ears

Buckets of moonbeams in my hand

You got all the love honey baby

I can stand.



I been meek

And hard like and oak

I seen pretty people disappear...

    I dated a girl who hated Bob Dylan. She made fun of this song in particular. Ironically, that whole album, Blood on the Tracks, was about our relationship(s).

    I think this song is about buckets of rain. Not metaphorical buckets but literal buckets like the 5 gallon orange Homer paint buckets you get at Home Depot for $5 + $1 extra for the lid. Imagine several of these filled with water and slowly dumped on your head from 20 feet above. The sore neck and headaches you would endure would inspire you to write lyrics comparing the experience to a true love leaving you suddenly on a cold rainy night and your feeling of agony and helplessness to prevent it.
