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 misery everywhere

Stormy weather

Just can't get my poor old self together

I'm weary all the time, the time

So weary all the time

 

When she went away, the blues walked in and they met me

If she stays away, that old rockin' chair's gonna get me

All I do is pray the Lord above will let me

Walk in the sun once more

 

Can't go on, everything I had is gone

Stormy weather

Since my gal and I ain't together

Keeps rainin' all the time

Keeps rainin' all the time

<all backups>(When she went away, the blues walked in and met me)

<female backups only> (If he stays away, old rockin' chair will get me)

<all backups> (All I do is pray the Lord above will let me)

<all backups> (Walk in the sun once more)

 

Can't go on, everything I had is gone

Stormy weather

Since my gal and I ain't together

Keeps rainin' all the time, the time

Keeps rainin' all the time
