Lord, it rained, it rained as far as I could see;
Lord, it rained, it rained as far as I could see;
And when the water seeps up, keeps on crowding up on poor me.

Like a fool, I give everything I had for you to use,
Like a fool, I give everything to you I had to use,
Now you've gone and left me, seems like the world is falling right on through.

People talk, I can hear them whisper everywhere I go;
People talk, I can hear them whisper everywhere I go;
All my friends come to me and say, "Boy, I told you so."

What did I ever do that made you leave me so all alone?
What did I ever do that made you leave me so all alone?
Since you've gone and left me, I do nothing but weep and moan.

Every night I pray for you to walk across my door;
Every night I pray for you to walk across my door;
And I won't be worried about these Stormy Weather Blues no more.
