Thoughts of You in the Rain (song lyrics)

Verse:
The clouds have banked the sky with gray,
The wind is blowing strong.
A summer day upon the way,
The dust is rolled along.
But let the storm clouds frown upon
The lonely country lane,
Let the rains draw nigh,
Just as long as I
Have my thoughts of you in the rain.

Refrain:
Wind and rain bring thoughts of you
Closer again to me.
Tears from the sky bring thoughts of you
Waking a memory.
The storm clouds beat on window panes
Like tread of feet in country lanes.
You’re in my heart when rain drops start,
For they bring to me memories of you.
Rain from above brings thoughts of you
Closer again to me.

Verse:
The tears are falling from the sky,
And yet outside today,
From way up high where white clouds cry,
The sunbeams thread the way.
Oh, do not grieve because I weep,
I can be happy too,
But the storm clouds bring
With a rush and sting
My thoughts of you.

Refrain:
Wind and rain bring thoughts of you
Closer again to me.
Tears from the sky bring thoughts of you
Waking a memory.
The storm clouds beat on window panes
Like tread of feet in country Lanes.
You’re in my heart when rain drops start,
For they bring to me memories of you.
Rain from above brings thoughts of you
Closer again to me.

– Circa 1932
