Charted: 6 6
  • I'll never let you see
    The way my broken heart is hurting me
    I've got my pride and I know how to hide
    All the sorrow and pain
    I'll do my crying in the rain

    If I wait for cloudy skies
    You won't know the rain from the tears in my eyes
    You'll never know that I still love you
    So though the heartaches remain
    I'll do my crying in the rain

    Raindrops falling from heaven
    Could never wash away my misery
    But since we're not together
    I'll look for stormy weather
    To hide these tears I hope you'll never see

    Someday when my crying's done
    I'm gonna wear a smile and walk in the sun
    I may be a fool
    But till then, darling, you'll never see me complain
    I'll do my crying in the rain
    I'll do my crying in the rain
    I'll do my crying in the rain Writer/s: Carole King, Howard Greenfield
