Note that this is a tab of the original version of this song
by the Prisonaires, written by Johnny Bragg, and not the one
sung by Johnnie Ray. It's also come to my attention that the
recording I have of the song differs from a version posted on
youtube, so I've taken the liberty of posting the version I
listen to on my blog.

The song is structured:

LYRICS: Just walkin' in the rain Gettin' soakin wet Torturing my heart By tryin' to forget Just walkin' in the rain So alone and blue All because my heart Still remembers you People come to windows And they always stare at me Shake their heads in sorrow Sayin' who can that fool be Just walkin' in the rain Thinkin' how we met Knowin' things have changed Somehow I can't forget People come to windows And they always stare at me Shake their heads in sorrow Sayin' who can that fool be Just walkin' in the rain Thinkin' how we met Knowin' things have changed Somehow I can't forget
