A Rainy Day #socs #JusJoJan

I’m breaking all the rules here, but the prompt reminded me of a song.

Rainy day people always seem to know when it’s time to call
Rainy day people don’t talk
They just listen till they’ve heard it all
Rainy day lovers don’t lie when they tell you
They’ve been down like you
Rainy day people don’t mind if you’re cryin’ a tear or two

If you get lonely, all you really need is that rainy day love
Rainy day people all know there’s no sorrow
They can’t rise above
Rainy day lovers don’t love any others
That would not be kind
Rainy day people all know how it hangs
On their peace of mind

Rainy day lovers don’t lie when they tell you
They’ve been down there, too
Rainy day people don’t mind if you’re cryin’ a tear or two

Rainy day people always seem to know
When you’re feelin’ blue
High stepping strutters who land in the gutters
Sometimes need one, too
Take it or leave it or try to believe it,
If you’ve been down too long,
Rainy day lovers don’t hide love inside, they just pass it on

Rainy day lovers don’t hide love inside, they just pass it on

I just used a Gordon Lightfoot song for Song of the Day yesterday, and here I’m using another. As I said yesterday, he has a great voice and writes really great songs. I think he’s quite underrated…

Linda runs both Stream of Consciousness Saturday and Just Jot It January.

Now a word about Totes umbrellas, America’s favorite umbrella brand!

I carried one in my briefcase for years…

  1. I love Gordon Lightfoot. I still have a cassette of Gordy’s Gold, a compilation of his best. Nothing to play it on but oh well.

    1. When “The Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald” came out, I thought it was about something that happened in the distant past, but it had only happened a year or two before the song. It made the song even more poignant.
