I've been thinking about "Kentucky Rain". It is certainly one of my favorite Elvis songs, especially to  sing along to, but I have questions.

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
I think she's running from you, guy. Just a hunch.
All I know is I want to bring you home
This controlling attitude may be part of the issue, don't you think?

So I'm walking in the rain,
So she took your car?
Thumbing for a ride
On this lonely Kentucky backroad
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 thru
Maybe you should have called a friend with a car before undertaking this little adventure. Don't have a friend? I think the picture may be coming into focus
With the rain in my shoes,
Proper footwear is important. You should have taken this into consideration
Searchin for you
In the cold Kentucky rain,
In the cold Kentucky rain

Showed your photograph
To some old gray bearded men
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
Thanks for nothing, old guys. Also, do you really think you are going to catch up to her on foot at this point?

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 thru the rain
As he listened I explained
And he left me with a prayer
That I'd find you
I'll give the preacher man this much, he was more helpful than the old men back at the store.
