Rain Dance Lyrics

Here are the lyrics..

I remember in those days we really didn't have an internet to look up lyrics.. We guessed and argued all the time about songs.. Carley Simons cool "You're so Vain" was tough on a few lines.
It's funny that after 42...

    I finally heard the song after AGES!

    I remember well in 1971 when it came out.

    It's weird, has a great beat , and makes no real sense at all. I have done a pretty'
    good look online and can't find a single
    comment about this song which I find unusual.
    I'll look further , but I'd thought I'd
    shout out here. I believe I'm the first or so.

    I haven't found the artist's comments on line either.
    yet but I'll have a go at interpretation.
    Very dangerous indeed

    So I think..
    First The song has a great drum.. a little like
    "Cherokee People by Paul and the Raiders..
    And I remember as a kid (13) "digging" the cool
    "John Gun" part..especially the voice.
    It was the 70s, so I recall, things were
    "re examined" in a new critical light"
    Groups like the Beatles, Doors were saying all kinds of "mysterious" "meanings" and
    symbolism all over the place.
    I think sometimes in this kind of
    climate it was easy for
    some groups to make up nonsense lyrics that
    sounded cool and let others "interpret" the way they wish. Some were more complex and mysterious like "American Pie" a bit later.
    So I'm not sure this song has a "real meaning". What do you think?
