City Rain

 

Ev'ry child's a favorite face

Ev'ry eye's for turnin' love

A piece o' heart is left to trace

For all her cryin' not in vain

 

Reckon best as best I know

I should do as I am told

In my lazy head to able

All her cryin' not in vain

 

            In the city rain

            Things are better now I swear

            She brought you here she'll take you out

            Of the city rain

 

There's a sweet old widow flirtin'

'tween two babies feedin' pigeons

Them ol younguns noddin' reasons

For all her cryin' not in vain

           

            In the city rain

            Things are better now I swear

            She brought you here she'll take you out

            Of the city rain

 

Tough as nails right thru a wall

A woman's day is never done

A favorite child is one of all

And ev'ry eye's for turnin' love

 

(Chorus)

(Chorus)

 

A favorite child is one of all...
