about

Anything Goes is Roger Len Smith's sixth album, going back to 1997's National Boulevard. Ten new songs recorded at Charkansas Ranch Studios in Wimberley, Texas, half of the album addresses the chaos and division that's been gripping America. Songs both personal and universal played with abandon and skill, Anything Goes features Smith's songwriting at its best.

Beautiful guest appearances by Rami Jaffee (Foo Fighters, Wallflowers), Noelle Hampton and Andre Moran (The Belle Sounds) and Kim Deschamps. Jimmy Spencer plays brilliant drums on each song. Aj Downing played some banjo and woodblocks.

Track Name: Raining On A Sunny Day (ft. Rami Jaffee)
Raining On A Sunny Day
(Roger Len Smith)

All the clouds have gone away
Yet it’s still raining
Such a beautiful day
And the world has seen the sun
Yet it’s all fading
Into a lonely one

And it’s raining on a sunny day CHORUS 1
Yes it’s raining on a sunny day
Yes it’s been raining

And the rain makes a rainbow
With the sun it’s light aglow
All this night, will it ever go away
Will it fade or is it here to stay

And it’s raining on a sunny day CHORUS 2
All the clouds make them go away
Your hands are still raining, on a sunny day

It’s gonna take, take some time BRIDGE
Turning back from these tides
What it all is now
Storms are raging and how

SOLO (x2)

Sweet sweet life, sweet mother of life
Save us all from this strife
Let sweet rain, let it come on down
From on high and from all around

But it’s raining on a sunny day CHORUS 3
All the clouds make them go away
Yes it’s been raining, on a sunny day

Turning back from the tides that come
Holding at bay the changes undone
Always running, always moving ahead
And if you don’t change, you’re gonna wind up dead

And it’s raining on a sunny day CHORUS 4 & 5
All the clouds chase them all away
Yes it’s still raining on a sunny day…
And it’s raining on a sunny day
Yes it’s raining on a sunny day
Yes it’s been raining on a sunny day
Yes it’s been raining on such a beautiful day
