Seven lonely days
And a dozen towns ago
I reached out one night
And you were gone
Don't know why you'd run,
What you're running to or from
All I know is I want to bring you home

So I'm walking in the rain,
Thumbing for a ride
On this lonely Kentucky back road
I've loved you much too long
And my love's too strong
To let you go, never knowing
What went wrong
Kentucky rain keeps pouring down
And up ahead's another town
That I'll go walking through

With the rain in my shoes,
Searchin' for you
In the cold Kentucky rain,
In the cold Kentucky rain
Showed your photograph
To some old gray bearded man

Sitting on a bench
Outside a gen'ral store
They said "Yes, she's been here"
But their memory wasn't clear

Was it yesterday,
No, wait the day before
So I fin'ly got a ride
With a preacher man who asked
"Where you bound on such a cold dark afternoon?"

As we drove on through the rain
As he listened I explained
And he left me with a prayer
That I'd find you
