Lyrics verse:
I WALK AROUND
I AM HEAVY HEARTED
SOMETIMES
AND I'M SAD.
AND THE NIGHT
COMES AROUND,
AND SOMETIMES
I AM STILL FEELING BAD.
AND THE RAIN
IS POURING DOWN:
IT IS BLINDING
EV'RY HOPE
I EVER HAD,
AND ITS PITTERING
AND ITS PATTERING
AND ITS BEATING
AND ITS SPLATTERING
DRIVES ME MAD.
I AM THINKING
ABOUT LOVE:
WHEN IT'S GONE
AND IT AIN'T
COMING BACK
THIS MISERY
IS JUST TOO MUCH
FOR ME.

Chorus:
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.
LIFE IS BARE
GLOOM AND MIS'RY
EV'RYWHERE,
STORMY WEATHER,
JUST CAN'T GET
MY POOR SELF
TOGETHER,
I'M WEARY ALL THE TIME.

WHEN HE WENT AWAY
THE BLUES WALKED IN
AND MET ME.
IF HE STAYS AWAY
OLD ROCKIN' 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,
EV'RYTHING I HAD
IS GONE,
STORMY WEATHER,
SINCE MY MAN AND I
AIN'T TOGETHER,
KEEPS RAININ'
ALL THE TIME,
KEEPS RAININ'
ALL THE TIME.
