Cry Like a Rainstorm
Bonnie Raitt Lyrics


Life isn't easy
Love never lasts
You just carry on
And keep moving fast

I turned off the highway
Pulled into town
I'm fancy free darlin'
And I've travelled round
Sometimes I'm up
Sometimes I'm down
Tell me where can I run to
Tell me how have I sinned
When you cry like a rainstorm
And howl like the wind

So who shall I start with
Tell me how to begin
When you cry like a rainstorm
And howl like the wind

My thoughts are lost in memories
That keep me free
Know if all the stars were shining
They would not help me see

Don't you know that
Sometimes I'm up
Most times down
Where can I run to
Tell me how have I sinned
You cry like a rainstorm
And you howl like the wind

Well my life isn't easy
And my love never seems to last
So I'll keep on carrying on darlin'
I'll just keep moving fast

I turned off the highway
Pulled into town
And I'm still fancy free
And I keep travellin' round

Sometimes I'm up
Most times I'm down
Where can I run to
Tell me how have I sinned
When you cry like a rainstorm
And you howl like the wind

So who shall I start with
Tell me how to begin
When you cry like a rainstorm
And you howl like the wind

Cry like a rainstorm
And you howl like the wind

Bonnie Raitt sure knows how to take a song and sing the shit out of it!

Pete B

cmon, Eric Kaz wrote it and Bonnie with the backing of basically Little Feat with Taj on harp DEFINED this great song. Linda aint in the same sphere...just sayin...

Stephen Gaydos

John Hall also played on this tune. John played with Taj's big band too.

This is my life song. I have been a fan of Bonnie's since I was 11 yrs young. Bonnie is my favorite female singer/musician. I have been fortunate to see Bonnie in concert several times.

Don't get me wrong, I'm an optimistic person but this song is my go-to song when life sucks, gives me peace of mind, as if to say, I know exactly how you feel.

Bonnie's music has been a huge comfort and joy for 47 yrs. So much love for Bonnie, she is my heart.

This song is my soul..Thank you Bonnie, I will love you forever...

This is a great post. That's Taj Mahal on harmonica!

Judith Gips

I've loved Taj since I was a teen i nthe early 1970s too!

TJ Colatrella

When you here a song this great and wish you had written, it the odds are it was written by Eric Kaz.!

Alan McLennan

Loved her for 46 years, still love her. Brilliant song by a fantastic singer. XXX

I am Jaguar Paw! This is MY forest!

When music was still music...Yes, I remember.

I know this song from when Craig Fuller (of Pure Prairie League) sang it, teamed up with Eric Kaz (who wrote it). And Linda does a great job. I love her music.  But there really is no one like Bonnie Raitt, and she does the best version of this-- as she did with "Love Has No Pride," another Kaz song more famously done by both Ronstadt and Rita Coolidge.
