CRANKY YANKEE Lyr Req: It's Raining Here This Morning (Jones) (6) RE: Lyr Req: It's rainin' here this morning 24 Apr 03


Inukshuk.

Yup, that's the one. Now that you mention it, I remember that it is, "The rain is still a fallin' on the mountain.". It was recorded by Marshal (Grandpa)Jones. Incidentlly, Merle Travis played the lead guitar on this, as he did on other sGrandpa Jones records. 'Y'Know why? Because Merle Tavis was Grandpa Jones' brother in law.    If we put what you remember and what I remember together and use some imagination, we've got a song. Like...... The Title could be, "A SONG THAT BEARS A REMARKABLE RESEMBLANCE TO 'THE RAIN IS STILL A-FALLIN ON THE MOUNTAIN'" by Inkshuk and Jody Gibson

             I
The rain is still a-fallin on the mountain
But my darlin' doesn't love me any more
I just got out of jail this very morning
And she wasn't there to greet me at the door

(middle 8)
If I started countin' teardrops, a fallin one by one
I would have a million before the day is done

The rain is still a-fallin on the mountain.
And I wish I was back behind those prison walls.
                II
It's raining raining raining here this morning
As I'm sitting here waitin' for my bride.
I'm watchin' how the river is a- risin'
As the rain keeps on a-fallin' from the sky

If I started countin' teardrops a- fallin one by one
I would have a million before the day is done
The rain is still a-fallin on the mountain
And I wish I was back behind those prison walls.



Howzat?? Maybe it will do until someone comes up with the original lyrics.

Dear Sorcha: Thanks, that's a good one. I'll learn that as well.

Love and kisses


Jody Gibson
