Subject: RE: Lyr Req: It Ain't Gonna Rain No More
My mom taught me this song when I was a kid in the 40's. We lived in Arkansas and then moved to Texas.
I woke up one Sunday morning, and looked upon the wall,
the spiders and the bedbugs were havin' a game of ball,
the score was 19 to 20, the bedbugs were ahead,
the spiders knocked a homerun, and knocked me out of bed.
O how in the heck can I wash my neck, if it aint gonna rain no more,
O how in the heck can I wash my neck, if it aint gonna rain no more.
I went downstairs to breakfast, the toast was very hard,
the coffee taste like tobacco juice, and the butter taste like lard.
Never knew where it came from and I always wanted to know the full version.
