Kentucky Rain Lyrics - Elvis Presley

Review The Song (4)



(words & music by Eddie Rabbit - Dick Heard)

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, thumbin' for a ride
On this lonely Kentucky backroad
I've loved you much too long; my love's too strong
To let you go, never knowing what went wrong.

Kentucky rain keeps pouring down,
And up ahead's another town that I'll go walking through
With the rain in my shoes, searchin for you
In the cold Kentucky rain, in the cold Kentucky rain.

Showed your photograph to some old gray bearded men
Sitting on a bench outside a general store
They said "Yes, she's been here"
sponsored links
But their memory wasn't clear.
Was it yesterday? No, wait the day before.

Finally got a ride, with a preacher man who asked,
"Where you bound on such a cold, dark afternoon?"
As we drove on through the rain, as he listened I explained
And he left me with a prayer that I'd find you.

Kentucky rain keeps pouring down,
And up ahead's another town that I'll go walking through
With the rain in my shoes, searchin for you
In the cold Kentucky rain, in the cold Kentucky rain.

This song was above but with the many he did in later life. You can close your eyes and see what he was expressing through heart felt song. Heck, I put several ahead of him but damn! I visited Graceland. They just don't make 'em like him anymore.

A gem | Reviewer: Nevada56 | 8/26/13

Some songs can stir memories of the past, and "Kentucky Rain" does just that for me. Came out in the dark, dreary months of early 1970, always on the car radio. It was Elvis at his finest, before his sad slide began. Truly a song to sing along to.

"The Real Deal" | Reviewer: chris | 6/22/12

I love this song. To me, it shows the true depth and quality of Elvis' vocal ability. He was cool with the rock n roll but as he got older, he really got better; especially with this song as well as In the Ghetto. I'm normally a Motown fan but I still think that Elvis was literally 'The King'. Peace to all.

A great song, sung powerfully in Elvis style. When his music was more mature.
