“Come Rain or Come Shine” – St. Louis Woman

Music: Harold Arlen   Lyrics: Johnny Mercer

Come rain or come shine, take some time for yourself today.  This song will help put you in the leisurely mood.  Its relaxing rhythm and amorous lyrics caused it to become a standard while the musical it came from is practically forgotten.  The show’s obscurity could be due to comparison with the musical Meet Me in St. Louis, which was already hugely popular by the time this opened on Broadway and remains so today.
