Subject: RE: Lyr Req: It Ain't Gonna Rain No More
What a co-ink-ee-dink, I've been trying to decipher various Fiddlin' John songs, this among them. Lots of guesses - perhaps the answers are listed above.
It Ain't Gonna Rain No More
Fiddlin' John Carson:
But it ain't gonna rain no more, no more,
It ain't gonna rain no more,
How in the world can the old folks tell, that it ain't gonna rain no more?
I asked that gal to marry me, ????????????/
Laid my arms around, called her Little Liza Jane
I wouldn't marry a yellow gal, here's the reason why:
She's too black and greasy for 1845
I asked that gal to marry me, she said we'll see ya later
????, great big eyes potater?
Junebug comes in the month of June, Lightin' bug in May
Bedbug comes any old time, says "I've come to stay!"
White gal smells like powder and cane, other gal smells the same,
Black gal don't use powder and cane, marry her jes the same!
