Rain In New Orleans by me

Rain, rain, don't go away.

The concert outside the Howlin' Wolf
Left my eardrums all a mess.
The hearing loss may not be permanent,
But the effects are, more or less.

The music, how it touched my soul -
Seaped through my open skin.
And now the rain is pouring down,
Letting it all soak in.

I'm walking in the rain
In New Orleans,
I'm walking
In the rain in New Orleans.
I'm walking
In the
Rain in New Orleans.
Rain, rain,
Don't go away.

I must admit lately my life
Has been void of inspiration.
It's work and home, and that's all right,
But I needed this vacation.

The weather sometimes ruins things,
But on this day I saw
Through those all-knowing drops of rain
My soul down at Lundi Gras.

I'm walking in the rain
In New Orleans,
I'm walking
In the rain in New Orleans.
I'm walking
In the
Rain in New Orleans.
Rain, rain,
Don't go away.

Between the band I'd come eleven hours to see
And the rain blinding me,
As I wandered down South Peters Street,
I'd believe I was in Heaven,
If that's what you told me.
The music lifted my spirit,
And the rain set it free.

I'm walking in the rain
In New Orleans,
I'm walking
In the rain in New Orleans.
I'm walking
In the
Rain in New Orleans.
Rain, rain,
Don't go away.
