It's Raining Here This Morning

Lyrics Shared By: Jennifer

It’s a raining, raining rain here this morning
As I sit in jail and I hang my head in shame
With a smile, I try to greet an early dawning
But they’ve given me a number for my name

Many little raindrops are falling close to me
They make the streams and rivers just as muddy as can be
It’s a raining, raining rain here this morning
As the Mississippi flows into the sea

How I wish that I could see my little darling
And hold her in my arms just as before
She used to tell me everyday she loved me
But now she doesn’t love me anymore

She knew that I was guiltless of this one crime
And she said that she’d be waiting there for me
But she’s found some else to wonder
Where the Mississippi flows into the sea

It’s a raining, raining rain here this morning
And I’m just as weary as can be
I wish that I could fall on a raindrop
Down the Mississippi toward the silver sea

But there’s no way to prove that I’m not guilty
So I guess I’ll have to suffer all the shame
Go and tell her for me, little raindrop
That they’ve given me a number for my name
