my lyricsbox
Seven lonely days
And a dozen towns ago
I reached out one night
And you were gone
Don't know why you'd run
What you're running to or from
All I know is I want to bring you home

So I'm walking in the rain
Thumbing for a ride
On this lonely Kentucky backroad
I've loved you much too long
My love's too strong
To let you go, never knowing
What went wrong

Kentucky rain keeps pouring down
And up ahead's another town
That I'll go walking through
With the rain in my shoes
Searching for you
In the cold Kentucky rain
In the cold Kentucky rain

Showed your photograph
To some old gray-bearded men
Sitting on a bench
Outside a general store
They said, "Yes, she's been here"
But their memory wasn't clear
Was it yesterday?
No wait, the day before

Finally got a ride
With a preacher man who asked
"Where're you bound on such a cold dark afternoon?"
As we drove on through the rain
And he listened, I explained
And he left me with a prayer
That I'd find you

Kentucky rain keeps pouring down
And up ahead's another town
That I'll be walking through
With the rain in my shoes
Searching for you
In the cold Kentucky rain
In the cold Kentucky rain [6x]
