|prompt: Mention unseasonable weather and taking a train ride.
"Til’ Those Clouds roll on by…"
Gonna take a sentimental train ride
Packed my melodies and all refrains.
Gonna jump the Flyin' Southwind, "by-by"!
Leave the misery of all this rain!
First, Elvis we'll see down in Tupelo!
Hearts beat faster when we watch his show!
Then hear Frankie on Miami Beach
His song and smile will make us scream and screech!
We'll chug on up to Georgia, meet a friend,
Sammie Davis, he'll sing 'Summertime' !
His voice like vintage Carolina wine...
The clouds will disappear around that bend.
Al Jolson has me weepin' for him, too
Buttercups will cuddle up and coo...
Take that train, a sentimental choo, choo
Take that train and leave these old clouds blue.
Take that train 'til we go rollin' by , yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah!
Take that train, we ain't a comin' back, no, no, no, no!
Take that train, the clouds we roll on by, whoo, whoo, whoo, whoo!
'Til those rainy clouds; they leave the sky; whoo, whoo, whoo, whoo!
