ABOUT Come Rain or Come Shine
Come Rain or Come Shine was written for the musical St. Louis Woman. The song itself is rather unusual, in that the same note repeated 12 times in the first two measures. In spite of that repetition, or perhaps because of it, the song works very well for the singer. Al Gioia in Jazz Standards says that “this composition tends to resist grandstanding, and instead appeals to the more introspective improviser.”

Lyrics

I’m gonna’ love you, like nobody’s loved you
Come rain or come shine
High as a mountain, deep as a river
Come rain or come shine

I guess when you met me
It was just one of those things
But don’t you ever bet me
Cause’ I’m gonna’ be true if you let me

You’re gonna’ love me, like nobody’s loved me
Come rain or come shine
We’ll be happy together, unhappy together
Now won’t that be fine

The days may be cloudy or sunny
We’re in or out of the money
But I’m with you always
I’m with you rain or shine
