Woke up during the night to heavy rain, which continues this morning. I took a few pictures, with Gordon Lightfoot’s “Rainy Day People” playing in my head. I saw him in concert at Clowes Hall in Indy a lifetime ago. He gave a great performance and I have enjoyed listening to his music ever since. That song got me started for the morning. I love rainy days, especially if I don’t have to venture out in them. Today I do. If I don’t come back, I’ve melted.
“Rainy Day People” — Gordon Lightfoot
“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 ‘ya 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 a piece 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 feeling 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”
Rainy day lovers, don’t hide inside — go out there pass it on.
If you’re not a rainy day lover, you may now go sulk. 😛
