Lightnin' Hopkins – California Showers lyrics

Just take a look at the weather
It keep rainin' all the time
Just take a look at the weather
It keep rainin' all the time
You know it be rainin' this minute and the next minute
You look up and you'll see sunshine
Tell me why there's rain
Why it storm in California all the time
Tell me why do it rain
Why it storm in California all the time
I don't want the rain
But you still have plenty sunshine
You know it keeps on rainin'
You know this poor man can't make no time
You know if it keeps on rainin'
You know this poor man can't make no time
You know if I can't go to my job
How I'm gonna feed this family of mine?
You know the poor children are runnin' "I'm hungry"
When I don't have a lousy dime
Poor children runnin', cryin' "Daddy I'm hungry"
And I don't have a lousy dime
That's the reason I was singin' when it started rainin' in California
Why do it keep rainin' all the time?
You know it was dark and cloudy
Raindrops settled on my window pane
You know it was dark it was cloudy
The raindrops settled on my window pane
You know my children didn't have nothin' to eat
Now peoples ain't that a cryin' shame
My poor wife walkin'
Tellin' the children this is a cryin' shame
My poor wife walkin'
Tellin' the children this is a cryin' shame
Yeah we all goin' down starvation I do believe
But your daddy ain't to blame
That's all right, that's all right
You don't have to worry no more
That's all right, that's all right
Children you don't have to worry no more
You know the sun is shinin
