The ToneWay® Project: helping people play music

Dark and Stormy Weather

We met, loved and parted
I 5 thought the world of 1 you
You left me 4 broken 1 hearted
To 5 me you proved un- 1 true

Dark and stormy weather
It still inclines to rain
The clouds hang over center
My love's gone away on a train

I'm leaving old Virginia
There's nothing here for me
I know you love another
In the grave I'd rather be

You told me that you loved me
I believed just what you said
But now you love another
I wish that I was dead
