Don't know why
There's no sun up in the sky,
Stormy weather,
Since my man and I ain't together,
Keeps rainin' all the time.

Life is bare,
Gloom and misery everywhere,
Stormy weather,
Just can't get my poor self together,
I'm weary all the time, the time.
So weary all the time.

When he went away, the blues walked in and met me,
If he stays away, old rocking chair will get me,
All I do is pray the Lord above will let me
Walk in the sun once more.

Can't go on,
All I have in life is gone,
Stormy weather,
Since my man and I ain't together,
Keeps rainin' all the time.
Keeps rainin' all the time.

I walk around, heavy-hearted and sad,
Night comes around, I'm still feelin' bad,
Rain pourin' down, blindin' every hope I had,
This pitterin', patterin', beatin' and spatterin' drives me mad!
Love, love, love, love!
This misery is just too much for me!

Can't go on,
Everything I had is gone,
Stormy weather,
Since my man and I ain't together,
Keeps rainin' all the time,
Keeps rainin' all the time.
