8-beat intro.  Play 4-beats for each cell, reading from left to right.
It was raining, dear, when I met you,
You smiled, the sun shone through,
Then it rained again and I lost you,
Just why I never knew.
Now ev'ry time the storm clouds gather way up in the sky,
I see them all and I recall those happy days gone by:
I get the blues when it rains,
The blues I can't lose when it rains,
Each little drop that falls on my window pane,
Always reminds me of the trears I've shed in vain.
I sit and wait for the sun,
To shine down on me once again,
It rained when I found you, It rained when I lost you,
That's why I'm so blue when it rains.
