It was recorded live at the Supertone Studio in Valencia, Spain as part of the 'Blueberry Pie' sessions with a single guitar overdub.

It's three chords and blues, but not as you know it. Listen out for Hummock Starlite-Campbell who decided she wanted be a part of the song as well.


My grandads suitcase, was brown and tattered
I tried to open, but the locks were knackered
I prised the catch, to peek inside
It started raining

I found a photo and frilly knickers
A tube of glue and a bar of snickers
Ate the candy and chipped a tooth
It started raining

It started raining and tears were shed
It started raining no feather bed
It started raining all down my face
It started raining

I went to see him at the circus
Walked inside with a sense of purpose
A painted smile, a broken heart
It started raining

The Caravan, door was broken
A second thought, an empty token
We went inside, to talk awhile
It started raining


A shot of whisky, sorrows for drowning
A chunk of ice to sink a ship
A tale or or two about the weather
It’s complicated

We packed a suitcase, his costume hanging
And made our way onto my street
With every footstep, anticipation
It started raining

I pressed the doorbell, the dog was barking
The sound of laughter, big surprise
A family reunited
It started raining
