Transcriber:

Rainy day, rainy day

Ya oughta hear my baby sing the blues

Rainy day, some rainy day

You oughta hear my baby sing the blues now

Now an she said she just walkin' around

Just to tell these strange people the news

Now what's the use of loving?

Peoples, said I don't see why I should

What's the use of love?

Peoples, said I don't see why I should now

Now, an you know this little woman that I'm lovin'

Lord, an she don't mean me no good

Now but that would be alright, now

My bad luck ain't going to last always

Now but that would be alright

My bad luck ain't going to last always

Now just because I'm down an out now

I'm gonna see some ol' lucky day

Take care of my wife an my baby

Tell 'em that I'll be back home someday now

Take care of my wife and my baby

Tell 'em I'll be back home someday now

Now tell 'er that she ain't actin' nothin' but a fool

Doggin' me 'round this way

Lord, sometime I go out walkin'

People, go out walkin' to myself

Lord, sometime I go out walkin', now

Go out walkin', talkin' to myself, now

Now because my baby be's on my mind

An I don't be's thinkin' about nobody else

Now I'm-a just as sure

Just as sure as one an one is two now

Now am I just as sure

Just as sure as one an one is two now

Now, when I give you my money

Babe, I'm gon' be up 'n dead like you, now.
