1800's, the West. .. ...

It was on the fourth of July
Or maybe it was the fifth
A stranger came into town
Said he could make it rain

We just looked at each other
Calling him a fool, for there
Were others that claimed
The same thing too. ..

This here stranger
Had a ton of dynamite
Drove his
To the highest clift                              

Blew up the dynamite         
All at once. ..
Waking up the Gods and the  
People who called him a fool

It started to rain
An hour or two later
People were dancing
In the streets. ..

The stranger disappeared
Left as fast as he came
Never asked for payment
Just said, he could make it rain

Good story. There just ain't much a ton of dynamite won't do!
