Lena Horne sings Stormy Weather

 

Lena Horne from the 1943 movie.

Don’t know why there’s no sun up in the sky
Stormy weather since my man and I ain’t together
Keeps raining all the time, the time
Life is bare, gloom and misery everywhere
Stormy weather, just can’t get my poor self together
It’s raining all the time, the time

When you went, you went away, the blues walked in and met me
If he stays away, ol’ 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, everything I had is gone
Stormy weather since my man and I ain’t together
It’s raining all the time

I walk around, heavy-hearted and sad
Night comes around and I’m still feeling bad
Rain’s pouring down, blinding every hope I had
This pitterin pattering, beating and spattering drives Me Mad
Love, Love, Love, this misery’s just too much for me

Can’t go on, everything I have is gone
Stormy weather since my man and I ain’t together
It’s raining all the time, keeps raining all the time
