Inükshük Lyr Req: It's Raining Here This Morning (Jones) (6) Lyr Add: RAIN IS STILL A-FALLING ON THE MOUNTAIN 25 Apr 03


It's been an awful long time, but here are the words that drift through the fog. The verses may not be in the right order, and some of the lines may be in the wrong places. It's fairly close though.

THE RAIN IS STILL A-FALLING ON THE MOUNTAIN

First Verse
The rain is still a-falling on the mountain
And my darling doesn't love me anymore
I just got out of jail this very morning
And she wasn't there to meet me at the door

First Chorus
If I counted raindrops falling one by one
There would be a million before the day is done
The rain is still a-falling on the mountain
And my darling doesn't love me anymore.

Second Verse
The rain is still a-falling on the mountain.
I'm sitting here a-waiting for my love,
Watching the river slowly rising,
While the raindrops keep on falling from above.

Second Chorus – same as the first?

Third Verse
When I got home I found the saddest letter
Written by the only one I love
I'm standing in the rain and getting wetter
As the raindrops keep on faling from above

Third Chorus,
I'm weary, sad, and lonesome. Why must this be my fate?
My darling always promised that she would wait.
The rain is still a-falling on the mountain
I wish I was back behind those prison walls
