Kentucky Rain

"The best thing one can do when it's raining is to let it rain."

- Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
(27 Feb 1807 - 24 Mar 1882)


Dear Friends and Schoolmates,
  

   I'm not sure if it's raining in Kentucky today, but I wish we could share some of our abundant rains with poor California.....

From http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kentucky_Rain:

"Kentucky Rain" was a 1970 hit song for Elvis Presley. Featuring then-unknown pianist Ronnie Milsap and written by Eddie Rabbitt and Dick Heard, the single peaked at number 16 on the pop charts.

Released as a single on January 29, 1970, "Kentucky Rain" was not included on an album until the compilation package Worldwide 50 Gold Award Hits Vol. 1 (LPM-6401); while the track does appear on the 2000 re-release of From Elvis in Memphis, it was not included on the original 1969 album. During Elvis' February 1970 engagement he performed this at every show, introducing it as a new song "out about a week". Live versions are available on the box sets Elvis Aaron Presley and Live in Las Vegas.

This song was played exclusively every home game pregame at Cleveland Browns Stadium when University of Kentucky quarterback Tim Couch played for the Browns from 1999-2003.

       From My #5 Son, Nathaniel Harty (Hillsboro HS, IL - '97) of IL - 05/12/16 - "Nice baseball story":

I used to hate David Ortiz as a player. Mostly because the Cardinals lost in 2004 against the Red Sox, but he's steadily improved in my view since that time. His response to the Boston Marathon bombings was awesome, but this one takes the cake.

Like they said, that's Hollywood stuff there.

     WOWZERS - AGREED! Thank you, Nathaniel!

FINALLY:

From www.ajokeaday.com - 05/12/15:

At a party of professionals, a doctor was having difficulty socializing. Everyone wanted to describe their symptoms, and get an opinion about diagnosis. The physician turned to a lawyer acquaintance, and asked, "How do you handle people who want advice outside of the office?"

"Simple," answered the attorney, "I send them a bill. That stops it."

The next day, the doctor, still feeling a bit uneasy about his experience, opened his mailbox to send the bills; there sat a bill from the lawyer.

Kentucky Rain

Words and Music by Eddie Rabbitt (27 Nov 1941 - 7 May 1998) and Dick Heard, 1970

(Elvis Presley)
(8 Jan 1935 - 16 Aug 1977)
 

 Seven lonely days
And a dozen towns ago
I reached out one night
And you were gone
Don't know why you'd run
What you're running to or from
All I know, is I want to bring you home

So I'm walkin' in the rain
Thumbin' for a ride
On this lonely, Kentucky backroad
I've loved you much too long
My love's too strong
To let you go, never knowing
What went wrong

Kentucky rain keeps pourin' down
And up ahead's another town
That I'll go walkin' thru
With the rain in my shoes
(rain in my shoes)
Searchin' for you
In the cold Kentucky rain
In the cold Kentucky rain

Showed your photographs
To some old, gray bearded men
Sitting on a bench
Outside a general store
They said, "Yes, she's been here"
But their memory wasn't clear
"Was it yesterday?
No wait, the day before."

Finally got a ride
With a preacher man who asked,
"Where you bound on such a cold, dark afternoon?"
As we drove on thru the rain
As he listened I explained
And he left me with a prayer
That I'd find you

Kentucky rain keeps pourin' down
And up ahead's another town
That I'll go walkin' thru
With the rain in my shoes
(rain in my shoes)
Searchin' for you
In the cold Kentucky rain
In the cold Kentucky rain

In the cold Kentucky rain
In the cold Kentucky rain
In the cold Kentucky rain
