  • Rainy day people always seem to know when it's time to call
    Rainy day people don't talk
    They just listen till they've heard it all
    Rainy day lovers don't lie when they tell you
    They've been down like you
    Rainy day people don't mind if you're cryin' a tear or two

    If you get lonely, all you really need is that rainy day love
    Rainy day people all know there's no sorrow
    They can't rise above
    Rainy day lovers don't love any others
    That would not be kind
    Rainy day people all know how it hangs
    On their peace of mind

    Rainy day lovers don't lie when they tell you
    They've been down there, too
    Rainy day people don't mind if you're cryin' a tear or two

    Rainy day people always seem to know
    When you're feelin' blue
    High stepping strutters who land in the gutters
    Sometimes need one, too
    Take it or leave it or try to believe it,
    If you've been down too long,
    Rainy day lovers don't hide love inside, they just pass it on

    Rainy day lovers don't hide love inside, they just pass it on Writer/s: GORDON LIGHTFOOT
