  • In ev'ry day that passes us by
    I can't help the feelin' that you and I
    We won't get to see another day together.
    Looks like bad weather.

    I can see it all there in your eyes
    And it comes to me as no surprise
    That you don't need me here no more.
    Your feeling tells the score.

    Words, they are getting
    Hard for me to find.
    You take me by my hand
    And you're leading me blind.

    In ev'ry day that passes us by
    I can't help the feelin' that you and I
    We won't get to see another day together.
    Looks like bad weather.

    Yes it does,
    And I believe it's gonna rain. Writer/s: PAUL COTTON

  • Doug from Kansas City, Moyeah i remember back in 1975 i was breakin up with my girlfriend Patti...it looked (and sounded like) Bad Weather. A bittersweet time for us. Still...its better to have loved and lost than to not have loved, eh?
  • Dewey from Ottawa, OnBad Weather was first recorded by Paul Cotton on The Illinois Speed Press's second (and last) LP "Duet." A final farewell while still with the band. Very similar situation to Neil Young's goodbye to the Springfield, "On The Way Home"....
  • Tm from Tucson, AzThis is what country rock is all about!
  • Gene from Hammond, InA new version of "Bad Weather" appears on Paul Cotton's latest CD entitled "Firebird". It's a 1st class acoustic arrangement featuring Dobro and pedal steel guitar work by (who else?) Rusty Young of Poco.
