"Montgomery in the Rain" as written by and Steve Young....
You don't have to hide your baby, you don't have to go get no gun.
Oh how can you blame me for things I ain't never done.
I used to live here and now I've come back again.
Just to stop for awhile and think how things might of been.
I had to come back to remeber the joy
And the pain and if it's alright with you before I get back on the train.
I just want to see Montgomery in the rain.

Around these streets and old houses,
A whole lot of changes I've been through.
From the top of the town to feelin' down washing cars and shining shoes.
I once met a woman here with ways like I've never see
And we used to ramble from here to ol' New Orleans.

I had to come back to remember the joy and the pain.
But it won't be long till I'll be gone 'cause it ain't the same.
But I did want to see Montgomery in the rain.

I've just come back here to stare and ol' window pane.
For one last look before you tear it all down with your crane.

You don't have to hide your baby, you don't have go get no gun.
Don't you stare like I'm crazy just 'cause I'm Hank's only son.

I had to come back to remember the joy and the pain.
But it won't be long till I'm gone cause it ain't the same.

So if it's alright with you before I get back the train.
I'm a go out to Hank's tombstone and cry up a thunderstorm

I got to see Montgomery in the rain.
