Make It Rain is a song by the Northern Irish musician Foy Vance. It was made famous by Ed Sheeran in 2014 when it was used in the television series Sons of Anarchy in 2014.

Ed Sheeran versionEdit

The Ed Sheeran song was used in an episode in season 7 of the television series Sons of Anarchy. Sheeran was an avid fan of the series and mentioned it on his Twitter account. When the creator read it, he proposed that Sheeran records a song for one of the episodes. As Sheeran was touring with Foy Vance at the time, and as one of Vance's songs (Make It Rain) started with the lyrics "When the sins of my father / Weigh down in my soul", Sheeran thought it was appropriate for the series and with Vance's approval, Sheeran recorded the song to be used in the episode "Red Rose" braodast on December 2, 2014.

LyricsEdit

When the sins of my father
Weigh down in my soul
And the pain of my mother
Will not let me go
Well, I know there can come fire from the sky
To refine the purest of canes
Even though
I know this fire brings me pain
Even so
And just the same

Make it rain
Make it rain down, Lord
Make it rain
Oh, make it rain
Make it rain
Make it rain down, Lord
Make it rain
Make it rain

And the seed needs the water
Before it grows out of the ground
But it just keeps on getting hotter
And the hunger more profound
Well, I know there can come tears from the eyes
But they may as well be in vain
Even though
I know these tears come with pain
Even so
And just the same

Make it rain
Make it rain down, Lord
Make it rain
Make it rain
Make it rain
Make it rain down, Lord
Make it rain
Make it rain

Make it rain [8x]

And the seas are full of water
That stops by the shore
Just like the riches of grandeur
That never reach the port

So let the claps fill with thunderous applause
And let lightning be the veins
And fill the sky
With all that they can drop
When it's time
To make a change

Make it rain
Make it rain down, Lord
Make it rain
Make it rain
Make it rain
Make it rain down, Lord
