Verse:
Buds will soon be flow - ers,  Birds will sing of Spring,
Now's the time when love should bloom for me.
In my lone - ly hou - rs,  Lifes an emp - ty thing,
Clouds ap - pear where skies of blue should be.
 
Chorus:
It looks like rain in Cher - ry Blos - som Lane,
The sun - shine of your smile's no lon - ger there.
It looks like rain in Cher - ry Blos - som Lane,
Your gold - en voice no long - er fills the air.
The rip - pling notes have left the old mill stream.
There's noth - ing left for me but just a dream.
There'd be no rain in Cher - ry Blos - som Lane,
If you were there to tell me that you care.
