They Were Collaborators #98

The Prisonaires

Just walking in the rain
Getting soaking wet
Torturing my heart by trying to forget

Just walking in the rain
So alone and blue
All because my heart still remembers you

People come to their windows,
They always stare at me
Shaking their heads in sorrow
Saying, Who can that fool be

Just walking in the rain
Thinking how we met
Knowing things have changed
Somehow I can't forget.

Anybody who thinks Johnny Ray's version was definitive hasn't heard the Prisonaires.

I have to confess, I know this song not through Johnny Ray or the Prisonaires but through "Gentleman" Jim Reeves (one of the few albums my Mom owned).
