standin’ in the rain blues lyrics – bessie smith

standin’ in the rain and ain’t a drop fell on me
standin’ in the rain and ain’t a drop fell on me
my clothes is all wet but my flesh is as dry as can be
it can rain all day, i ain’t got no place to go
it can rain all day, i ain’t got no place to go
because it’s cold outside in that ice and snow

if it rains five days that won’t give me no blues
if it rains five days that won’t give me no blues
i’ve got my raincoat and hat, umbrella, boots and shoes
rain, rain, rain don’t rain on me all day
rain, rain, rain don’t rain on me all day
’cause if i get too wet, i’ve got to go into the house and stay
