Standing in the Rain

Album: Lay It Down (2008)

Songfacts®:

  • This final track on the album conveys the sort of message that the Reverend Al would like to leave all of us with. Green explained on the EMI press release: "'Standing in the Rain'- that don't mean good times. I've got afflictions, I've got trials, I've experienced all the things that can hold you back. But I refuse to be held back."
