Sweet Rainy-day Friend

There's something southern about you

that speaks an easy-going style

of Spanish Moss in bloom, lazy afternoons,

milk and honey running wild.

Let your hospitality shine through,

I ask you, honey child.

Be my sweet rainy-day friend.

Stay with me until I don't know when

the sun comes back again.

When I first saw you I got lost

in deep reflections in your eyes.

I saw the light was a starry Southern Cross

and your arms opened wide.

Now the sky can cry alone

because I'm going to come inside.

Be my sweet rainy-day friend...

For as long as I've been standing in the rain

it still hasn't washed my loneliness away.

Be my sweet rainy-day friend...
