Rainy city at night

BluesMatters 2019


Rainy city at night and the floods are pouring down

The clouds are lying low over town

Rainy city at night and I’m wondering where to go

Have no idea have no clue I just don’t know


Rainy city at night wading through an empty street

Soaking garments and no shoes on my feet

Rainy city at night bottle is empty in its bag

What a calamity such an appalling drag


Nowhere to stay tonight nothing left to eat

Nowhere to stay tonight except this soaking street


Rainy city at night with no warming kiln in sight

All is murky and hardly any light

Rainy city at night now I’m seriously getting the blues

Realising there’s nothing else to lose


Nowhere to stay tonight nothing left to eat

Nowhere to stay to night except this soaking street


Rainy city at night and the floods are pouring down

The clouds are lying low over town

Rainy city at night and I’m wondering where to go

Have no idea - have no clue - I just don’t know
