Mahalia Jackson – Didn’t It Rain

Didn’t it rain, children
Talk ’bout rain, oh, my Lord
Didn’t it, didn’t it, didn’t it oh my Lord
Didn’t it rain?
Didn’t it rain, children
Talk ’bout rain, oh, my Lord
Didn’t it, didn’t it, didn’t it, oh my Lord
Didn’t it rain?
It rained 40 days, 40 nights without stopping
Noah was glad when the rain stopped dropping
Knock at the window, a knock at the door
Crying brother Noah can’t you take on more
Noah cried no, you’re full of sin
God got the key and you can’t get in
Just listen how it’s rainin’
Will you listen how it’s rainin’
Just listen, how it’s rainin’
All day, all night
All night, all day
Just listen how it’s rainin’
Just listen how it’s rainin’
Just listen how it’s rainin’
Some moaning, some groaning
Some groaning, some praying
Well, a whole
Didn’t it
