Standing in the Weather

Well I’m standing in the weather
Tears rolling down my face
Well I’m standing in the rain
Tears streaming down my face
After years searching
Still can’t find my place

Went to school in San Jose
But never had a mind for books
Went to school in San Jose
Never had a mind for books
Couldn’t stop dreaming bout my teacher with the crazy looks

Found a job in Oakland
But that didn’t last too long
Took a job in Oakland
But that didn’t last too long
No matter what I did
Bossman said it was wrong

Got married in LA
The girl she was oh so sweet
Got married in LA
Chiquita she was oh so sweet
Guess her mama never taught her
You got a good man, don’t cheat

Well I’m standing in the weather
Tears rolling down my face
Well I’m standing in the rain
Tears streaming down my face
Been years of searching
I still can’t find my place
