Early Mornin' Rain
Elvis Presley Lyrics

In the early mornin' rain
With a dollar in my hand
And an aching in my heart
And my -pockets full of sand
I'm a long ways from home
And I missed my loved one so
In the early mornin' rain
With no place to go

Out on runway number nine
Big 707 set to go
Well I'm out here on the grass
Where the pavement never grows
Where the liquor tasted good
And the women all were fast
There she goes my friend
She's rolling out at last

Hear the mighty engines roar
See the silver wing on high
She's away and westward bound
For above the clouds she flies
Where the mornin' rain don't fall
And the sun always shines
She'll be flying over my home
In about three hours time

This ol' airport's got me down
It's no earthly good to me
'Cause I'm stuck here on the ground
Cold and drunk as I might be
Can't jump a jet plane
Like you can a freight train
So I best be on my way
In the early mornin' rain
So I best be on my way
In the early mornin' rain
So I best be on my way
In the early mornin' rain

Anyone else notice the little 'one eyebrow' raise at the very start when the guitar plays the intro? One thing I've noticed about Elvis is that he seems to feel every instruments every note, even when he stands still. I love that about him. The music was in him to his soul.

Elvis II

Yes! Every expression and dance was so natural to him, because he was so in touch with the music!!! That why is the greatest

Don Lombardi

As a lifelong Gordon Lightfoot fan, I can honestly say that the Elvis version is by far the best.


@skpknight I can honestly say this is the best.
Means nothing art is subjective.


I'm not a Gordon Lightfoot fan ,but I can honesty say the 1966 Peter Paul and Mary version is by far the best. Period.

Elvis was a gift for the eyes and the ears

Kim Lolley Smith

Just thinking that not only was he gorgeous his voice is like no other. What a talent!

@Beatriz Chavez

I’m so thankful for the internet! I was born after his death and I can’t imagine my life without his voice
