Duke Ellington

Edward Kennedy "Duke" Ellington (April 29, 1899 – May 24, 1974) was an American composer, pianist, and leader of a jazz orchestra, which he led from 1923 until his death over a career spanning more than fifty years.Born in Washington, D.C., Ellington was based in New York City from the mid-1920s onward and gained a national profile through his orchestra's appearances at the Cotton Club in Harlem.

Don't know why there's no sun up in the sky, stormy weather
Since my gal and I ain't together, keeps raining all the time
Life is bare, gloom and misery everywhere, stormy weather
Just can't get my poor old self together
I'm weary all the time, the time
So weary all the time

When she went away the blues walked in and they met me
If she stays away, that old rocking chair's gonna get me
All I do is pray the Lord above will let me
Walk in the sun once more

Can't go on, everything I had is gone, stormy weather
Since my gal and I ain't together
Keeps raining all the time
Keeps raining all the time

(When she went away the blues walked in and they met me
If she stays away, that old rocking chair's will get me
All I do is pray the Lord above will let me
Walk in the sun once more)

Can't go on, everything I had is gone, stormy weather
Since my gal and I ain't together
Keeps raining all the time, the time
Keeps raining all the time
