DonMeixner Lyr Req: It Ain't Gonna Rain No More (42) RE: Lyr Req: It Ain't Gonna Rain No More 23 Aug 11

MY Dad taught me the song when I was a little kid going fishing with him. Some of his verses I learned many years later were actually verses from The Original Talking Blues.

The old maid stood by the sewer,
The sewer where she died
At the courts inquest they did their best,
But ruled it sewer side.

Down In the wild wood sitting on a log
Finger on the trigger, eye on a hog,
Pulled that trigger the gun said Go!
Shot a man over in Mexico.

Down in the hen house on my knees
I thot I heard a chicken sneeze
It was only the rooster saying his prayers
Thankin' the Lord for the hens upstairs.
