about

Our version is based on the Carter Family's 1941 recording for the Victor label. However, this song's roots extend back to at least the early 1900s, showing up in several places with the title "I Don't Know Why I Love Her" and "Dark and Dreary Weather."

lyrics

Dark and stormy weather, it still inclines to rain
Deep clouds hang over center, my love’s gone away on the train

We met, we loved, we parted, I thought the world of you
You left me broken hearted, to me you proved untrue

Dark and stormy weather, it still inclines to rain
Deep clouds hang over center, my love’s gone away on the train

I’m leaving old Virginia, there’s nothing here for me
For now you love another, in my grave I’d rather be

Dark and stormy weather, it still inclines to rain
Deep clouds hang over center, my love’s gone away on the train
