  • Seven lonely days
    And a dozen towns ago
    I reached out one night and you were gone
    Don't know why you'd run
    What you're running to or from
    All I know is I want to bring you home

    So I'm walking in the rain
    Thumbing for a ride
    On this lonely Kentucky back road
    I've loved you much too long
    My love's too strong
    To let you go, never knowing
    What went wrong
    Kentucky rain keeps pouring down
    And up ahead's another town that I'll go walking through

    With the rain in my shoes (rain in my shoes)
    Searchin' for you
    In the cold Kentucky rain
    In the cold Kentucky rain
    Showed your photograph
    To some old gray-bearded men
    Sitting on a bench outside a gen'ral store
    They said "yes, she's been here"
    But their memory wasn't clear
    Was it yesterday?
    No, wait, the day before?

    Finally got a ride
    With a preacher man who asked
    "Where you bound on such a cold dark afternoon?"
    As we drove on through the rain
    As he listened, I explained
    And he left me with a prayer
    That I'd find you

    Kentucky rain keeps pouring down
    And up ahead's another town that I'll go walking through
    With the rain in my shoes (rain in my shoes)
    Searchin' for you
    In the cold Kentucky rain
    In the cold Kentucky rain
    In the cold Kentucky rain
    In the cold Kentucky rain Writer/s: Dick Heard, Eddie Rabbitt
