- words and music by johnnie ray
i went walkin' down by the river
feeling very sad inside
when all at once i saw in the sky
the little white cloud that cried
He told me he was very lonesome
and no one cared if he lived or died
and said sometimes the thunder and lightning
make all little clouds hide
He said "have faith in all kinds of weather"
"for the sun will always shine"
"do your best and always remember"
"the dark clouds pass with time"
He asked if i'd tell all my world
just how hard those little clouds try
that's how i know i'll always remember
the little white cloud that sat right down and cried
(the little white cloud that cried)
