GUEST,honeydhont Tune Req: Don't Let the Rain Come Down (26) RE: Tune Req: There was a crooked man 09 Nov 05

As early as August 1960, Ersel Hickey & Ed Miller copyrighted a song called 'Crooked Little House', from which The Serendipity Singers in 1963/4 took their cue for their big US-hit 'DON'T LET THE RAIN COME DOWN (Crooked Little Man)'. This earlier version was recorded by Jimmy Rodgers on his album 'At Home With Jimmy Rodgers' on Roulette in 1960, as Hickey was temporarily out of a record deal. It would be very interesting if somebody could come up with this song's lyrics (or a sound sample) for comparison with the hitversion. Thanks.
