Stormy Weather
Music by Harold Arlen
Words by Johnny Mercer

Don't know why there's no sun up in the sky,
Stormy weather,
Since my gal and I ain't together,
Keeps rainin' all the time.

Life is bare, gloom and mis'ry everywhere,
Stormy weather,
Just can't get my poor self together,
I'm weary all the time, the time,
So weary all the time.

When she went away,
The blues walked in and met me,
If she 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 gal and I ain't together,
Keeps rainin' all the time,
Keeps rainin' all the time.

When she went away,
The blues walked in and met me,
If she 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 gal and I ain't together,
Keeps rainin' all the time,
Keeps rainin' all the time,

Love the countdown and your commentary. However, Stormy Weather was written by: Harold Arlen/Ted Koehler. Besides that, carry on........
