    Lyrics

    Oh it's raining, raining, raining here this morning
    As I sit in jail and hang my head in shame
    With a smile I try to greet each early dawning
    But they've given me a number for my name

    Many a little raindrops are falling close to me
    Makes the streams and rivers just as muddy as can be
    It's raining, raining, raining here this morning
    As the Mississippi flows on to the sea

    How I wish that I could see my little darling
    And hold her in my arms just as before
    I used to tell her every day I loved her
    But now she doesn't love me anymore

    She knew that I was guiltless of this one crime
    And said that she'd be waiting there for me
    But she has found somewhere else to wander
    Where the Mississippi flows on to the sea

    Its raining, raining, raining here this morning
    And I am just as weary as can be
    I wish that I could follow all the raindrops
    Down the Mississippi toward the silver sea

    But there's no way to prove that I'm not guilty
    So I will have to suffer all the shame
    Go and tell her for me little raindrops
    That they've given me a number for my name
