Chuck Berry – Rain Eyes lyrics

Rain eyes that blur the rays of sunshine
When all you see is seen through tears
The whole world seems as though it's crying
Rain eyes, that's how my world appears
One sunny day in Lou'siana
The clouds began to hover low
And darkness came in early evening
And brought a rain that would not go

I's just a child when mother told me
It seems your father's gone away
It's not his fault, my child, forgive him
I should have known he would not stay
You're so much like him and he loves you
But now his love's for only you
Although he forced himself to leave you
Forgiving me he could not do

Rain eyes that cloud the hope of sunshine
When everything is seen through tears
The whole world seems as though it's crying
Rain eyes, that's how my world appears
It rains all evening into nighttime
Then rains all night and through the day
My mother's eyes are weak from crying
Forgive her, she just lost her way

Since you've been gone her eyes have clouded
And darkness reigns her weary view
She'd see again from your returning
That God knows she's in love with you
One rainy day in Louisiana
The trade winds blew the clouds away
A mother heard her boy shout, "Father"
My God, 'tis him, he's come to stay
