Well here I am again down in montgomery alabam
My luck ain't never been up but I'm used to it down
So all you people don't look at me and frown
I don't want to stay here and I'm just passing through your town
And I just came back here to see an old stained window pane
Before you tear it all down and bring out your crane
I did want to see montgomery I the rain...
Around these streets and old houses
Alot of changes I been through,
From the top of the town to washing cars ,
Being down out and blue,
And I once met a woman here with ways like I never had seen
We used to rambel between here and old new orleans
So I've just come back here to remember a joy and a pain
To look back to a year through a tear in an old window pane
And I did want to see montgomery in the rain...
So you don't have to hide your baby
You don't have to go get no gun
I know I look funny to you all honey but I'm just one
Who was once from here and now whose come back again
And I'm not asking for nothing but my song a cemetary wind
And if its all right with you before I get back on y train
I want to go out by hank's tombstone and cry up a thunder storm
'Cause I did want to see montgomery in the rain...
