I was born one rainy morn
Just before my mama died
Five years daddy left me
The rain was falling down outside

   Rain oh rain leave me alone
   You’re icy fingers chill my bones
   Seems trouble always comes around
   Each time the rain starts falling down

It seems the years pass by so quickly
I grew up fast I grew apart
Next thing I knew the rain was falling
Out across the prison yard

Now when I die make me this promise
To bury me in the darkest cave
So I may know while I am resting
No rain will fall upon my grave
