Subject: Lyr Add: CRYING IN THE RAIN (Everly Brothers)
Since someone mentioned 'Let it Be me'.. how about one that is infinitely more poignant and a great opportunity for a well-matched pair of voices:
Dave Edmunds and Nick Loew have a live recording of this that will break your heart - it's that lovely.


CRYING IN THE RAIN
Written By Carole King, Howard Greenfield
As recorded by the Everly Brothers, 1962.
I'll never let you see
The way my broken heart is hurting me.
I've got my pride and I know how to hide
All my sorrow and pain.
I'll do my cryin' in the rain.

If I wait for cloudy skies,
You won't know the rain from the tears in my eyes.
You'll never know that I still love you so
Though the heartaches remain.
I'll do my cryin' in the rain.

Raindrops fallin' from heaven
Could never wash away my misery,
But since we're not together,
I look for stormy weather
To hide these tears I hope you'll never see.

Someday when my crying's done,
I'm gonna wear a smile and walk in the sun.
I may be a fool, but till then, darling, you'll
Never see me complaining.
I'll do my cryin' in the rain.
I'll do my cryin' in the rain.
I'll do my cryin' in the rain.


Or.. in another thread, I recently mentioned a Waylon Jennings/Jesse Colter song called 'Storms Never Last'. This one is in a similar vein to 'A Kiss At The End Of The Rainbow' - it's wistful.

Storms Never Last
Bosse Andersson and Jesse Colter

Storms never last do they, baby?
Bad times will pass with the winds.
Your hand in mine steals the thunder.
You make the sun want to shine.

Oh, I followed you down so many roads, baby;
I picked wild flowers and sung you soft sad songs.
And every road we took, God knows, our search was for the truth.
And the storms brewing now won't be the last.

Female Singer:
Storms never last do they, fill-in-the -name of one-of-the-singers
Together:
Bad times will pass with the winds.
Your hand in mine steals the thunder.
You make the sun want to shine.

Male Singer:
Storms never last do they, fill-in-the-name-of-the-other-singer
Together:
Bad times will pass with the winds.
Your hand in mine steals the thunder.
You make the sun want to shine.

Repeat together:
Storms never last do they, baby?
Bad times will pass with the winds.
Your hand in mine steals the thunder.
You make the sun want to shine.
