One day you'll look to see I've gone
For tomorrow may rain, so I'll follow the sun
Some day you'll know I was the one
But tomorrow may rain, so I'll follow the sun
(the Beatles "I'll follow the sun")
Does the marked phrase mean "Because it may rain tomorrow" ?
If so, is it grammatically correct to say so?
"For tomorrow it may rain" would be the correct way using those words.
"Because it might rain tomorrow" would probably be a more common way of saying this.
If we insisted that all song lyrics be grammatically correct, we'd be left with very few. (That is, if we insisted that they must be grammatical).
If we insisted that all song lyrics were grammatically correct, that would broaden the possibilities of grammar. (That is, if we insisted that they were grammatical - as written).
It's not impossible that you'll catch me in an 'if I was you' if I live long enough.
