Couldn't Stand The Weather
by
Stevie Ray Vaughan
 
Couldn't Stand The Weather
©1984
 
     The second wind following Vaughan's torrential debut, Texas Flood, Couldn't Stand the Weather is no less severe a storm. Vaughan classics such as "Cold Shot," "Scuttle Buttin'," and "Honey Bee" are flanked by reverent, impassioned takes on Jimmy Reed's "Tin Pan Alley" and Guitar Slim's slinky "The Things That I Used to Do". An ambitious, heavily improvised reading of Jimi Hendrix's "Voodoo Chile (Slight Return)" finds the late Dallas native coaxing soaring, spitfire dialogues between his Texas-cured voice and blues-abused Stratocaster.

Lyrics to Couldn't Stand The Weather:

Runnin' through this business of life
Rarely time if I'm needed to
Ain't so funny when things ain't feelin' right
Then daddy's hand helps to see me through
Sweet as sugar, love won't wash away
Rain or shine, it's always here to stay
All these years you and I've spent together
All this, we just couldn't stand the weather
 
Like a train that stops at every station
We all deal with trials and tribulations
Fear hangs the fellow that ties up his years
Entangled in yellow and cries all his tears
Changes come before we can grow
Learn to see them before we're too old
Don't just take me for tryin' to be heavy
Understand, it's time to get ready for the storm
