Let It Rain
Derek and the Dominos Lyrics


The rain is falling through the mist of sorrow that surrounded me.
The sun could never thaw away the the bliss that lays around me.

[Chorus:]
Let it rain, let it rain,
Let your love rain down on me.
Let it rain, let it rain,
Let it rain, rain, rain.

Her life was like a desert flower burning in the sun.
Until I found the way to love, it's harder said than done.

[Chorus]

Now I know the secret; there is nothing that I lack.
If I give my love to you, you'll surely give it back.

[Chorus]

Bobby Whitlocks back up vocals and shouts and answers to Erics vocals in this song and all of them ,is a key piece of what made their overall sound work, and unique--all their own---often imitated never duplicated. They were my first concert---Thanksgiving weekend 1970 Painters MIll, Maryland, Theatre in the Round...they opened with Layla. I was 16.

Okay, I'm down with that. I'm as old as you. But, truly, if I want to hear "Let It Rain" or "Layla" or even "Badge," I want to hear it the way Eric recorded it - with the old vocals - not the way he's been doing it. I cannot stand the rushed-up, off-kilter vocals of the music I grew up on and loved. But you guitar and drum - heads have it your way - I just disagree.

Lizzie Lorman

agree 100%

Martin Hall

"...they opened with Layla. I was 16." A rite of passage if there ever was one.

Thomas Bedell

What a memorable experience. I missed those opportunities although I was there to take advantage. Great band. They come out of Delaney and Bonnie and then Mad Dogs and Englishmen. Carl Radle not to go unmentioned.

Richard Hincemon

Everyone thinks of Eric Clapton when you think of Derek and the Dominos but Bobby whitlock's contribution is what made them great! Cheers

So glad I grew up in this era when musicians were master craftsmen of their instruments and it was all about the music. Doesn’t get any better than this.

Thomas Bedell

Agree 100%. So many damaged people fell but what was recorded remains as an inspiration to those of today.

No One has mentioned Jim Gordon playing solid for nearly 20 mins flat out including a 6.5 minute drum solo absolutely brilliant

Daniel Elliott

One of the best drummers of the era by far.
