lyrics

I walked through city showers
For most of Friday’s hours
Searching shopping galleries in vain
For daisies in the rain
Daisies in the rain
For the Lord has taken my baby away

I stood outside her house in the cold
Waited ‘bout an hour or so
Thought I’d get to see her once again
But all I got was soaked
For that bird has flown
Flown so far away from me

Riddles in the petals she must’ve got
Told her that she’s going to love me not
‘Stead she’s gone to hold the hand
Hold the hand of a better man

So now I walk through showers
And cry away the hours
Searching shopping galleries in vain
For daisies in the rain
Daisies for her grave
For the Lord has taken my baby away
