This is a repost..but there’s a good thunderstorm rolling tonight and made me think of this song.
It’s raining in Southeast Missouri this morning. I’ve always enjoyed the rain ever since I can remember. When I turned about fourteen years old, I worked on a mowing crew and when it rained we had a “shop day”. Basically a day when a group of young men would clean the lawn mowers, weed eaters, etc. Of course, we gave each other plenty of BS as guys are prone to do at any age. We found it much easier to give each other crap without the noise of the equipment drowning out our good-natured insults. I still speak to many of those fellas. I’ve been blessed with maintaining long term friendships in my life. We all look back at those days as “being on a gravy train with biscuit wheels.” This song speak about being “as low and lonely as the rain.” For me personally, I’ve found that when I’m feeling down a good rain helps wash off the funk. I hope you like it.
