Walking In The Rain
The Prisonaires Lyrics


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.

I was around 12 yrs of age when my mentor and friend, Fowler Stanton, a band director at Smith Co High was asked by Mr. John Watts, Deputy Warden of Tenn State Prison, to do a musical development program at the prison. I attended some of his night time visits to the prison. He developed the Prisonaires group, took tours with them, did the recording of this hit song. They became very popular. They did a concert at my high school in Jackson Co. Then the story hit the papers. The Warden at Sing Sing hit the ceiling about such a thing! So, the Prisonaires were grounded. No more concerts or travel outside prison!

Recorded at The Memphis Recording Service , 706 Union by Sam Phillips, which became Sun Studio. The group were actual inmates who travelled by prison bus with guards.
