'No Rain' came from when I first moved to California and I was playing songs on Venice Beach for change. I was having to come up with the material during the week after my construction job, and then I would get my guitar and go down to the beach and open up a guitar case. I'd play on the Venice Beach boardwalk for change, for enough money to pay for parking and chicken teriyaki.
Lyrics to "No Rain" song by Blind Melon: All I can say Is that my life is pretty plain I like watchin' the puddles gather rain And all I ca. .
Blind Melon bass player Brad Smith wrote this song before he formed the band. He had moved from Mississippi to Los Angeles, where he fell into a funk. Brad told Songfacts: "The song is about not being able to get out of bed and find excuses to face the day when you have really, in a way, nothing. At the time, Brad was dating a girl who was going through depression (she would sleep through sunny days and complain when it didn't rain), and for a while he told himself that he was writing the song from her perspective. He later realized that he was also writing about it himself

Band: Blind Melon Song: No Rain Album: Blind Melon Tuning: Standard. Well I've had a look at the two other No Rain (well, one was 'No Rains') tabs on this site, and neither really resemble the way I play it. When I first wanted to learn to play it I looked at many tabs for it over the web, but not many seemed right. I think this is more a bunch of them mixed together than my own work.
