Kentucky Rain (1970)
(wm) Eddie Rabbit and Dick Heard. (P) Elvis Presley.
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 and my love’s too strong
To let you go, never knowing what went wrong

Chorus: Kentucky rain keeps pouring down
And up ahead’s another town that I’ll go walking thru
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 man
Sitting on a bench outside a gen’ral store
They said “Yes, she’s been here”
But their memory wasn’t clear was it yesterday
No, wait the day before

I fin’ly got a ride with a preacher man who asked
“Where you bound on such a cold, dark afternoon?”
As we drove on thru the rain as he listened I explained
And he left me with a prayer that I’d find you [Chourus]
