Waylon Jennings – Rainy Day Woman Lyrics

Oh rainy day woman
I’ve never seem to see you for the good times or the sunshine
You have been a friend of mine,rainy day woman

That woman of mine she ain’t happy
Unless she finds something wrong and has someone to blame
If it ain’t one thing it’s another one on the way

Oh rainy day woman
I’ve never seem to see you for the good times or the sunshine
You have been a friend of mine,rainy day woman

I woke up this morning to the sunshine
It sure as hell looks just like rain
I know where to go on a cloudy day

[Chorus x2]
