Stormy Weather

Album: Stormy Weather: The Legendary Lena (1941-1958) (1943)
  • 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 Writer/s: Harold Arlen, Ted Koehler
