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, ho can that fool be?? 

Just walking in the rain, 

Thinking how we met, 

Knowing things have changed

Somehow I can't forget.





"Just Walkin' in the Rain" is a popular song. It was written
in 1952 by Johnny Bragg and Robert Riley, two prisoners at
Tennessee State Prison in Nashville, after a comment made by Bragg as the pair
crossed the courtyard while it was raining. Bragg allegedly said, "Here we are
just walking in the rain, and wondering what the girls are doing." Riley
suggested that this would make a good basis for a song, and within a few
minutes, Bragg had composed two verses. However, because Bragg was unable to
read and write, he asked Riley to write the lyrics down in exchange for being
credited as one of the song's writers.



1953年の Johnny Bragg とRobert S. Riley の曲でジョニー・レイが歌っています。

Ray, Johnnie -ジョニー・レイ( 1927-1990 ) 1950年代のバラードシンガー。

Elvisは“Prince of Wails(泣き叫びの皇子)”“Nabob of
Sob(すすり泣きの大金持ち)”と知られていたジョニー・レイが好きだと言っていた。

レイがそう呼ばれていたのは泣き悲しむ歌い方だったから。

レイはそんな唱法を黒人女性R&B歌手のRuth Brownから学んだ。

Elvis出現以前では、レイはを歌うもっともポピュラーな白人R&B歌手であった。

 

John Alvin Ray (January 10, 1927 – February 24, 1990) was an American singer,
songwriter, and pianist. Popular for most of the 1950s, Ray has been cited by
critics as a major precursor of what would become rock and roll, for his jazz
and blues-influenced music and his animated stage persona
