Black rain, black rain
Don't fall on me
Can't you see I'm doing my best?
Black rain, black rain
Don't fall on me
When I lay to take my rest

And love it don't die
It just goes from girl to girl
Town to town, rose to rose
All around the world
Like a ghost upon a breeze
And a land of elegies

Black rain, black rain
Don't catch me low
And cover the sin of sun
Black rain, black rain
Where can I go
When you leave me nowhere to run?

And love it don't die
It just goes from girl to girl
Town to town, rose to rose
All around the world
Like a ghost upon a breeze
And a land of elegies
